Cilantro Lime Salsa

Susan Feliciano


One way to get children to eat vegetables is to make it like chips and dip. This salsa recipe is a favorite with my family, and my husband even makes it to impress his friends when they get together for a feast at work or to watch a ballgame.
For dippers, you can try my Baked Pita Triangles, or use vegetable chips. Slice carrots, zucchini, and Jicama very thin on the diagonal for something that is shaped like a potato chip and will hold dip. Celery also works.
