We're on kind of a "Stevenson Family Get Healthy" plan right now. We fell off the exercise and eat-right wagon the closer we got to the wedding and the more time became crunched. Going to the gym became less of an option and more of a joke. Taco Casa became a very real dinner option multiple nights in a week. And heaven knows we ate a TON on our honeymoon.
So now that things have (mostly) settled down, it's time to get back into shape, and a big part of that involves eating healthily. One of our favorite healthy treats is a recipe from the mother of one of the girls I used to work with at my church's youth group. She's now a rising senior at Alabama, but at her high school graduation party three years ago her mother made this salsa. I asked for the recipe immediately, and have made it many, many times in the last three years.
A lot of times we serve it atop meat (usually fish), although it makes a fantastic side dish on its own. I think it's best with blue corn tortilla chips, but it's really good with just about anything. It's great to take to a party or cookout because it looks and tastes SO impressive, but it's really easy. Plus, it's light and great for summer. Make this, and you won't be sorry!
