Mediterranean Salsa

I love making salsa in the summer with fresh fruits and veggies. This time I wanted to incorporate cucumbers and cherry tomatoes which we have a lot of. I loaded this salsa up with fresh cherry tomatoes, California Black Olives, red onions, chickpeas and cucumbers. It’s light, healthy and uses up a lot of summer vegetables and herbs. I also add a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.

Mediterranean SalsaThis salsa takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. Chop up all of the veggies, toss with some lemon juice, olive oil and serve!

This salsa makes a wonderful appetizer or side dish. Serve with my homemade tortilla chips or homemade pita chips!

Mediterranean SalsaI used California Black Olives in my Mediterranean Salsa. California black ripe olives are as good as they taste, and contain vitamin E, iron, vitamin A, and fiber. They are packaged at their peak to preserve nutrients for year-round enjoyment.

A serving of olives contains 0 grams of trans fat and olives are naturally a cholesterol-free food!
