Helpful hints

  • Serve with low-sodium crackers or tortilla chips. Look for brands with the lowest amount of sodium.
  • You may also serve with homemade pita chips. Split the pitas in half and cut each half into quarters. Spray with cooking spray and bake at 350º F for about 8 minutes.
  • A 6-ounce container of berries is typically about 1 cup of blueberries or raspberries. 
  • Drain salsa through a fine sieve to remove excess fluid if you are on a fluid restriction.
