Introduction: Low Sodium 60 Second Salsa

About: I have a great passion for cooking, crafting, fixing, or building stuff!

Store bought salsa can be a difficult one to swallow for someone counting their sodium intake. Most salsas have around 200mg per serving, making it very difficult for someone following a low sodium diet to eat. This 60 second low sodium salsa recipe uses all fresh ingredients, and only takes 60 seconds to make. Fresh is always better, and this fresh low sodium salsa packs a punch!
