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. You may also sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar after you spray with cooking spray.
  • Drain salsa through a fine sieve to remove fluid if you are on a fluid restriction.
