I’m pretty sure I’ve already gained 5 pounds just thinking about all the food I’ll eat this holiday season.
Although, that might be from all the apple pie I ate for breakfast over Thanksgiving weekend…
With all the holiday parties and activities, it’s hard not to over-indulge. So in an effort to keep “lose 10 pounds” off my list of New Years’ Resolutions, when invited to a party I always offer to bring something.
That way I can be sure there will be at least one healthy thing at the party for me and especially my children to eat.
This Pineapple Mango Salsa is the perfect choice because it’s loaded with antioxidants, phytochemicals, and vitamin C.
1 ½ c. tomatoes, seeded and diced small
1 c. pineapple, small dice
½ c. mango (papaya or guava), small dice
3 small cloves garlic, minced
1-2 jalapeños, seeded and finely diced (depending on how spicy you want it)
1 tbs. lime juice
1 tbs. cilantro, finely chopped
½-¾ tsp. salt
In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, pineapple, mango, garlic, jalapeños, lime juice, cilantro and ½ tsp. salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.
Right before serving, give it a taste and adjust the seasoning if desired. The flavors will really blend together after it sits for awhile.
