Salsa Recipe – Authentic Mexican Salsa Roja made with fresh ingredients is a perfect appetizer or snack to enjoy this summer.
A couple of weeks ago I really thought that winter was over here in Colorado. Fast forward to a few days ago, and we had the biggest snowstorm of the year! Of course the next day it all melted and we were in the 80’s shortly thereafter. I think now it is safe to say that the worst is behind us.
Now that it seems like summer is officially on its way, I am excited to start sharing some great healthy, summer snack ideas here on my blog. During the summer it is important to make sure that there are lots of healthy snack foods for my kids, my husband, and me. One of our favorite snacks are these Outshine Simply Yogurt Bars and Outshine Fruit Bars.
There are so many delicious flavors to choose from, so there is something for everyone. Of the Outshine Simply Yogurt Bars, my favorite flavor is Mango. It reminds me of growing up in Mexico when I would get something similar from the street vendors and savor it as I walked home. I love those memories from growing up and I am glad that I found something so delicious here as well!
There are so many creative ways to eat these bars – check out the Outshine Instagram page for inspiration. If you don’t know where to buy them, go to this link and enter your zip code to find out. If you haven’t tried these yet, you shouldn’t wait any longer. They are delicious and include fresh and healthy ingredients that you will love.
Another great snack idea for the summer when you are in a hurry is this delicious salsa roja recipe. This is one that I grew up eating in Mexico as well. My mom always made it and served it with homemade tortilla chips and more. It is such a simple recipe, and it is better than anything that you can buy in the store.
It includes fresh ingredients including tomatoes, onions, and cilantro and you won’t want to stop eating it once you stop. The good thing is that it is healthy, so you won’t feel so bad about it.
