Fresh & Light Cucumber Salsa

Fresh & Light Cucumber Salsa:

2 organic cucumbers, chopped
11 organic grape tomatoes diced (should be 1 cup diced)
1 organic jalapeño deseeded and finely chopped
1/2 small organic red or yellow onion, chopped
1 tblsp parsley (fresh and finely chopped is best)
1 organic garlic clove finely minced
(fresh dill, spearmint, and/or cilantro would also go well)

1/4 cup organic vegan yogurt
2 tbslp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

First, chop and combine all of the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir together well and set aside. Next, measure out the greek yogurt into a separate bowl, then add the lime and lemon juice to the yogurt and stir until fully combined. Once combined, add 4 tblsp of yogurt mixture to the chopped veggies, and toss until evenly coated.

Serve immediately with organic tortilla chips and enjoy!

Healthy Life Tip: Since the dip is so low in sodium and carbohydrates, make sure to pay close attention to the chips you select to serve with the dip to keep the values in a healthy range. Always choose organic chips whenever possible (that way you'll be guaranteed that none of these ingredients are in them and that the chips are non-gmo) and make sure to compare the nutrition info on of the chips first to make sure you're making the best choice - especially the sodium values.
