This Smoky, Sweet Salsa is Good for Your Heart

This Smoky, Sweet Salsa is Good for Your Heart

Have you ever tried a “sweet” salsa? Even if you have, you don’t want to miss this unique—and nutritious—take on a south of the border classic with our peach lime salsa. 

Created by One Drop coach, Jaclyn, a registered dietician (RD), certified dietician nutritionist (CDN), and certified food safety manager (CFSM), this recipe brings together the robust sweetness of peach, smoky zest of jalapeño, and the balancing citrus of lime.

Alongside these ingredients are other additions that, while not in the title, surely make this salsa recipe stand out. They include red onion, tomato, cilantro (or parsley), and bell pepper. 

Put together, these foods are as delicious as they are nutritious. 

The ample servings of lime juice, onion, and tomato provide 25% of your daily Vitamin A and C needs, according to One Drop health coach, Danica, a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and certified nutrition support clinician (CNC). The combined ingredients are rich in potassium, making this peach lime salsa a win for your heart health and a food that can help lower blood pressure

The peach lime salsa is also hydrating. With the water-rich tomato as a base, salsa provides a tasty snack that literally makes your mouth water. 

If you’re trying this recipe in late summer—perhaps to include on your menu for Mexican Independence Day—you’ll be able to catch the freshest peaches as their season winds down, shares One Drop coach Rukiyyah, a certified diabetes prevention specialist with experience and certification in plant-based nutrition.

While great for putting in a bowl and pairing with nacho chips, this salsa also makes a tasty topping for proteins such as burgers, chicken, fish, or tofu. 

So if you’re searching for a new topping, side dish, or way to celebrate Mexican Independence Day, look no further than our recipe for peach lime salsa.
