TIP OF THE DAY: Make Your Own Salsa

With the many millions of dollars spent each year on bottled salsa, few people realize how easy it is to make homemade salsa.

All you need is a sharp knife, fresh vegetables (tomatoes, bell peppers, onion), some chiles, seasonings (garlic, cilantro, salt) and lime juice. You can toss in corn, black beans or anything in your pantry, from canned pineapple to water chestnuts.

And you don’t even need tomatoes: Here’s a recipe for a summer salsa made with watermelon. It can be used with chips, as a side dish or as a salad on top of shredded lettuce.

Fresh salsa is crunchy and more refreshing than the jarred varieties, where the pasteurization process cooks the vegetables.
