Ok, as promised: here is the perfect salsa to accompany those fried plantains I told you about yesterday! This salsa comes from Gina's Weight Watcher's Recipe Blog, and it is absolutely delicious. For those who count their points, it's 0 points! We loved the fresh and authentic taste that this recipe has, and I'm sure it would be great for any Mexican dish that you have as well. It's like a good chunky salsa.
Servings: 4 servings
Points: 0 ww points
4 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
2 chile peppers, mild or hot, seeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves (no stems)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
salt and pepper, to taste
In a bowl combine all ingredients.
That's it! That's all there is to it. My Pampered Chef Hold N' Slice made it very easy to slice and dice these tomatoes, that's for sure. I'm terrible at slicing up tomatoes without it.
Ok, so make your fried plantains and whip up this salsa for a tasty appetizer to your next meal!
