We wanted to have a healthy snack with excellent flavor to brighten up a rainy day. This salsa is bursting with flavor, but also contains fruit and truly satisfies your body's need for vitamin C. The original recipe said to use yellow peppers, but that just wasn't good enough for us. So we replaced it with yellow peppers. We serve it with organic blue corn chips It makes a great healthy snack with its fresh and delicious ingredients and can be part of a well balanced diet when accompanied by other healthy foods and water. Our salsa is a lilttle too watery because we blended it on a higher setting. But it tastes fine just the same. Since the recipe called for other desired seasonings, we used a hot salsa seasoning that had insignificant nutritional factors.
