Ideas Needed For Salsa Alternative...
Posted 25 August 2012 - 03:08 PM
I'm giving up tomatoes...
Any ideas for an alternative, pig out salsa? I'm looking for something to scoop and scoop...with my rice tortilla chips...
When/If I get hungry later in the day, homemade salsa has been a staple. Sure would love to come up with an enjoyable replacement!
I'm also cutting out potatoes, dairy, corn, sugars.

Here's one Irish Heart gave me:
1 mango, diced small
1/2 pineapple. diced small
1/2 red onion, diced small
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced
small bunch fresh chopped cilantro
juice of 1 lime
Here's one we like on Salmon but its great cup up smaller and used with chips.
1/2 ripe firm pineapple cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Grill about 2 minutes per side. Chop. Add 1/4 cup chopped cilantro,small serrano chile pepper, seeded and diced &1 TBsp lime juice and salt.

NOTE: From painful experience remove all of the peel off the mango before blending.

You could do one of those "Cowboy CAviar" dips with out the tomatoes or corn (Beans, onion, garlic, vinegar, cilantro, small bits of pineapple or zuchini)

Equal amounts of chopped veggies
-Bell pepper (I use orange or yellow)
-Tomato (sub whatever alternative veggie you like)
Shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese (combined cheese should about equal the amount of one veggie)
Green Goddess salad dressing to lightly coat
My son LOVES this for lunch.

How about bagna cauda? It is one of my favourite things in which to dip vegetables.
Or how about salsa verde?
Are you giving up nightshades or just tomatoes? I imagine you are also giving up tomatillos but if not, this is an awesome salsa. I make it often. It is pitifully easy!
When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

1 cup Quinoa
Tablespoon olive oil
Tablespoon sour cream
Tablespoon of chopped onion
(optional) 2 tablespoons of low-fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt
Process OR blend it until it's smooth. It's more of a dip than anything, but it's good for you....(despite the 1/2 teaspoon of sugar)
ALSO..you can PICKLE onions, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber and anything else suitable...then use it as a salsa.
