A recipe for a healthy 9 vegetable salsa
November 24, 2015
If you can pack nine vegetables, one legume, some fresh herbs and spices into a side dish I think you have a great addition to the family dinner table. Why 9 vegetables and not 10? To be honest I didn’t plan how many to add, I counted them up once the recipe was created, eaten and enjoyed. Yes, 10 would have sounded better but 9 is a great effort if your family enjoys it.
Our family loves tacos. You can find my home made spice recipe for tacos here. The recipe is a chicken version but I use the same recipe to make a beef version, as served with this meal.
When we have tacos for dinner I add the fresh ingredients to the table so everyone can make their own taco version with the ingredients they like to eat. Yes, in my house the kids do tend to lightly add the vegetable options when they are given the choice. The reason I enjoy creating salsa and vegetable dishes such as this one is that:
The addition of (mild) chilli I added was almost unnoticable. You may choose to provide it on the side for the adults to add to their tacos rather than adding it to the meal preparation steps if chilli is unacceptable to your children.
This recipe makes a decent sized bowl of salsa. You will most certainly have left overs from a taco meal. It is perfect to add to a work or school lunch box as it can be enjoyed cold.
