Another simple but tasty recipe. Salsa is great as a dip, accompaniment to fish or great topping for poached egg on wholemeal toast. Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene which has been found to reduce the risk of certain cancers, helps protect the eyes and can help to reduce cholesterol. Onions and garlic have great antibacterial properties and chilli's can help to balance your blood sugar. Far better than ketchup, don't you think?
