Is salsa a vegetable?
I know chips and salsa have the potential to be very unhealthy. But if you do eat it, is salsa a vegetable? It is based on tomatoes, right? Or is counting salsa as a vegetable similar to counting ice cream as dairy?

I would say salsa is a veggie. You can make it from scrach, and just use tomatos, pepers, onions, and whatever else then you will control all of the added stuff.

yeah, salsa is a veggie! And don't forget the lime juice and garlic when you make it, YUM!

Also, don't forget that salsa is not limited to "chips and..." I put it in eggs, I put it in veggie burritos, I put it on peas and corn.... Fresh homemade salsa is the ultimate versatile seasoning as well as a great way to make sure you get tomatos in your diet!

Mmmmm...I think I'll go make some salsa!

a nice alternative to corn chips is baked pita bread. just slice the rounds into wedges and bake.

I agree that the homemade salsa would count... also there are some really simple recipes out there. The one I used uses tomatillos as well as tomatoes and a little lime juice and that's basically it. The tomatillos are sweet/tart and so they add a different flavor. Also, I used mine to cook chicken and it's quite good. Good luck!

I make the most awesome homemade salsa, I use it on everything. My fav is on a turkey, avocado sandwich, yum.
