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).

Check it out!

Salty Salt-Free Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 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.

Directions:

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.

Swayze’s Tips:

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,

Swayze

Thanks, Swayze! Sounds delish. Reading a recipe is good, but seeing you make it is so much better! I might add some chopped pineapple or mango, too. Hope to make it this week…

Thanks Swayze
Looks yummy and has some of my most favorite ingredients
I will definitely try it when I am done with my 10 day cleanse that
starts tomorrow.

You can visit my blog http://www.rawsomegal.wordpress.com and read about my 42 day cleanse using coconut water and stevia which I completed mid-January. I have also written about my transition back to food. I continue to write about health related topics and post daily (off on weekends). To read about my cleanse from day 1, click on December 2009.

[..YouTube..] Looks healthy, and good! although I’m not eating a raw vegan diet, I’ve been a devout vegetarian for all of my life (I’m 19). But I’ve been looking up lots of raw food videos on youtube lately, and because of that, I’ve definately been eating more fresh fruits and veggies! My friends think I’m weird because I obsess about eating healthy foods, but I don’t care what they think, becuase I know that it’s so worth it :)

I was loving it, wish I would have had some fresh corn that really would have made it. Thanks for the recipe!! <3
