For those who don't like their salsa hot or don't like jalopenos - try this dip instead. For those who don't like their salsa hot or don't like jalopenos - try this dip instead.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 400 gram tin of Chopped Tomatoes
    114 grams onions (medium sized onion)
    64 grams Yellow Pepper (Approx 1/2 large yellow pepper)
    35 grams Sweet Red Pepper (This looks like a large Jalopeno but isn't)
    2 Cloves of garlic
    10 mls Lime Juice
    10 mls Lemon Juice
    2 teaspoons of Tomato Paste
    1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder
    1/2 teaspoon Corriander powder
    Sea Salt (a good grinding)
    Black Pepper (a good grinding)


Finely chop the onions and peppers and place in a large bowl
Crush the garlic cloves and add to bowl
Add all the other ingredients and mix well
At this stage you can add more Corriander powder and Cumin Powder to taste if necessary

If you have a food processor put all the ingredients into the food processor and 'pulse' for a few seconds but be careful that the salsa doesn't get pureed. You want it to remain rough and crunchy.

Serve with celery sticks, carrot sticks, low fat crackers, low fat tortilla chips, small rice cakes etc - or you can place a sandwich thin in the oven for about 5 minutes - it becomes very crisp like crackers so is great to break up and use to dip into the salsa.

Just 67 calories for a 160ml serving!
