There’s something to be said for a good bowl of tomato salsa. It is one of those dishes that can completely change around a dinner party. It goes well with just about anything that you can use as a dipping device. Chips and salsa are of course a classic, but don’t forget pita chips, crackers, small slices of whole wheat bread, etc. And what’s great about tomato salsa is that it is rather neutral as far as salsas go. You can spice it up as you please to make it really suit you and your dinner party.
Tomato salsa has a lot of health benefits that primarily come from the tomatoes that form this recipe’s key ingredients. Tomatoes help to reduce your blood pressure, improve your eye health, and improve your stomach health. They also provide relief from diabetic issues, combat urinary tract infections, and help to improve skin problems. Eating tomatoes everyday also helps to detoxify the body, lower bad LDL cholesterol levels, and reduce inflammation. It really is a wonder fruit.
