Salsa

Tomatoes, peppers, onions, and fresh herbs are bountiful during the summer and even with a dash of salt, the sodium content of fresh salsa is still far below the 230 mg per serving (usually 2 tablespoons) found in jarred salsa. If tomatoes aren’t in season, canned no-salt-added tomatoes can be spiced up with fresh cilantro, lime, and jalapeño for a short-cut homemade dip. A hearty half-cup of this fresh veggie salsa has just 125 mg sodium.
