Who can resist salsa? This twist on a classic recipe will surely be a crowd-pleaser. By making your own salsa, you get the option of adding in extra fiber, all while consuming much less sodium and added sugar than a store-bought brand. Double the batch as we anticipate this one will disappear from the bowl quickly!

Low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained 1 c
Ripe papaya, diced 1 c
Red bell pepper, diced 1 c
Red onion, peeled and diced 1/2 c

Fresh oregano 2 t
Fresh ginger root, peeled and grated 1 inch
Extra virgin olive oil 2 T

Freshly ground black pepper 1/2 t
Sea salt 1/8 t
