Eat your vitamins to help prevent getting sick this winter with this refreshing clementine salsa
My friend Lauren is the best and knows exactly how to make me happy: a giant bag of citrus fruit!
We're talking like 30 clementines, some naval oranges, and a few grapefruits. SO EXCITED!
I'm also eating my delicious clementines to boost my vitamin C intake.
The other day I was searching for some clementine recipes, and most were for cake.
That sounds delicious and all, but not necessarily the direction I'm looking to go. I wanted something interesting that would add more nutrients to my meals. Then I found a recipe for chicken skewers with clementine salsa, so salsa it is!
This salsa has 2 pounds of clementines (about 10 clementines) and a cucumber. It also has some salt, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño to add in some savory elements.
I love sweet and savory flavors combined, and this salsa does it well.
Another thing I love about this salsa? It's a refreshing way to get some produce into your day. Even though it's not summer, you should still be able to enjoy a good batch of seasonally fresh salsa.
It's hard to beat the happiness I feel when something that is tasty & versatile is also incredibly healthy. Enjoying your fruits & veggies is much more enjoyable than swallowing a pill (whether it's medicine to help ease your symptoms or vitamins to help prevent getting sick).
