Fresh Rainbow Salsa

by Katie Bock

Salsa is a fun and easy snack.  I love it because it is packed with flavor and you can experiment with all different veggies!  It is also a great way to get tons of phytonutrients, especially this rainbow Salsa, you have all the colors in one bite. 

Phytonutrients are nutrients that are found if different color fruits and veggies.  To get all that our body needs it’s important to eat a variety of colors.  Eating the rainbow is a fun way to get little ones excited about fruits and veggies. 

We love to have this rainbow salsa with blue corn tortilla chips, with an omelet, or with chicken.  I love to use it with tacos too!
