Salsa Fresca

Ready for the Super Bowl!

I was so happy when I realized most typical salsa ingredients were okay for the Gerson diet. This salsa is so fresh and can be used by itself or as a topping for many foods. I have been adding it to greens as a “salad dressing,” with cold chopped potatoes. I have also been thinking of dehydrating some kale to make kale chips, and trying this salsa out with chips. Store in a mason jar, and use freely for topping.
