Hi, I'm just starting out the IP diet. Are there any salsas that are ok to eat? Thanks!

The safest way to have salsa is to make it yourself! Very simple - chopped tomato, chopped onion, diced jalapeno, a little lemon juice, dash of salt and fresh chopped cilantro! Just remember to measure your veggies so you know how to calculate your daily 4 cups, and that tomato is a restricted veggie.

I use the Pace picante sauce. No added sugar. Make sure you read the ingredients. I don't use much at a time, but it does add some flavor.

I made an amazing salsa with a red pepper, cucumber, green onion, a jalapeņo and fresh cilantro. Just chop all if the ingridients finely and mix with a bit if lime juice. Great taste and then you don't have to use tomato.

I use salsa with no added sugar. I really like Chi-Chi's.
