Quick Snacks: Nutty Hemp Cashew Salsa
Mmmmmmm this is my favorite way to make salsa that has some good nutrition in it too. It can happen. Yes, you can make your own salsa from scratch, but this recipe involves using a jar of Organic Salsa. That is the quick part. This is how to improve store bought organic salsa, or regular homemade salsa. The following amounts of the ingredients are approximate, and you can adjust to your individual taste, and to the amount of salsa you are making. I just want to give you the overall idea of what to add into the salsa of choice, to make it a nutty super-food special! Once you pour your salsa into a bowl, just take a few seconds of your precious time to add a handful of raw organic cashew pieces, 2 TB hemp seeds, 2 tsp nutritional yeast, 1 TB flax powder, and 1 tsp of chia seeds. Mix and let mixture sit while you go to the pantry to get a bag of Garden of Eatin' Organic Blue Tortilla Chips, or Mediterranean Snacks Baked Lentil Chips.
I can assure you that this super salsa is always the hit of the party! Although I say...that you can go ahead and make some just for yourself, on any old day. I won't tell....just don't eat the whole bag of chips....save some for another day of crunch satisfaction. A handful is fine. Using some chopped carrots and celery even better! This is such a hearty nutty salsa, that is so totally satisfying, and so filling, that you really will not eat too many chips after all. Oh that does look yummy! For you sporty types, this would be a perfect addition to the game snack table.
