Y’all,  this low-sodium recipe is one of my absolute favorites! It’s the recipe trifecta- healthy, tasty and easy. The freshness and flavor is undeniable and will have you asking “where have you been all my life?!” Most salsa found at the store, even organic, can be loaded with sodium (over 200 mg per serving). I GUARANTEE once you try homemade salsa you’ll never go back to store bought!
