Whether it's mild or scorching, smooth or chunky, salsa is great on a variety of foods. Try it on potatoes, vegetables, fish and chicken. Unfortunately, store-bought salsa can be high in salt. But you can easily make your own. Start by chopping up 2 garlic cloves, 1 small red onion, 2 bell peppers and 4 tomatoes. Toss these with fresh cilantro, 1/4 cup lime juice and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Add 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional). Chill for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
