Homemade salsa recipe

Now that I have read “Heal Your Headach” by author Dr. David Bushholtz I am a believer that migraine, in its various forms, is one of the health issues I have. Today is the 12th day of adhering go the 1-2-3 Program diet. Despite my chocolate cravings I have eaten somewhat well. I think I am a good cook and look forward to the challenges of staying within the proposed diet. I haven’t cheated yet, even with chocolate.

I should note that the book has a two week meal plan and the recipe suggestions are great, but they sure aren’t a lifelong commitment, as the 1-2-3 Program is in managing migraine.

So, anyways, this is where I’m going to post some recipes that I have found, tried and either liked or didn’t like. One way or another at least there is variety in out dining choices!

Home Made Salsa

(Please note, I used canned items on hand when I had the craving for salsa. Because of use of citric acid and other flavorings and preservatives store-bought salsa is not an option to stay on the diet, that I have found, anyways. Feel free to change this recipe as suits your taste!)

1 – 28 oz canned diced tomatoes

1 – 4oz canned diced green chilies

3 stalks green onions, diced/sliced small

1 – 8 oz can sliced black olives (yes, half the can. I didn’t find any smaller cans but I’m sure they’re available)

2 tablespoons virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons Franks Red Hot Sauce

Salt and Pepper to taste

Pour canned tomatoes, green chilies and olives into strainer and let drain for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Empty into bowl and add other ingredients. Mix well. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
