Swayze’s Salty Salt-Free Salsa Recipe
If you’ve been hangin’ around Fit On Raw for a while, you’ve probably heard about this super simple salsa recipe that I love so much.
It was one of the first savory low fat raw dishes I ever made that I actually enjoyed eating and became a staple for me during my first few months raw. Whenever I had a craving for salty cooked food, I turned to this bad boy.
I hadn’t made the recipe in a while, but was having some fellow raw foodists over and knew this recipe was the perfect way to showcase healthy and delicious low fat raw fare (along with lots of sweet fruit, of course).

Salty Salt-Free Salsa
- 24 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes (sweetest you can find)
- 16 ounces of celery (4-6 stalks)
- 8 ounces red bell pepper (1 pepper)
- 4 ounces sweet apple (Gala or Fuji, 1/2 apple)
- 1 handful cilantro
- 1 English cucumber, sliced diagonally*
*I prefer the English variety. They are less watery than traditional cucumbers and have much more flavor.
Cut half of the celery, red bell pepper, and all of the apple into medium-sized pieces. You want each piece about the same size as the tomatoes. Pulse half of the tomatoes and cilantro with the celery, pepper, and apple chunks. You want a slightly chunky mixture, not a puree.
Dice the rest of the tomatoes, celery, bell pepper, & cilantro. Stir blended portion with the diced portion and devour with cucumber slices or any veggie you like.
Another great way to eat this salsa is with pineapple rings! Simply slice the pineapple into thick rings, core (a little circular biscuit cutter works great) and spoon the salsa on top. Delicious and beautiful presentation.
Go raw and be fit,
