Presidential Salsa


(1 vote) 5 1

Cherries can be used for more than just filling pies. This sweet and zesty salsa can be a condiment for chicken, turkey, or pork. Or try it as a side dish on top of brown rice, or as a dip with whole-grain crackers. Cherries are loaded with anthocyanin, a phytochemical that accounts for their deep red color and helps prevent chronic disease. They are also a significant source of dietary fiber and potassium.

Chop the cherries into small pieces and combine them with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate the salsa for at least 1 hour. Use this like any other salsa: with crackers, in burritos, as a condiment with chicken or pork, or on a bowl of steaming brown rice.
