Helpful hints

  • Serve with low-sodium crackers or tortilla chips. Look for brands with the lowest amounts 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. If desired, sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar after you spray the pita with cooking spray. 
  • Drain salsa in a fine sieve to remove extra fluid if you are on a fluid restriction.
