Fresh Salsa {Ninja Edition}

We have had this salsa at our house for the past two nights in a row (a request from my six-year-old twins), and I think we could have it for another ten straight without getting sick of it.  

Honestly, my boys (even my three-year-old) gobble this right up.  They can't get enough of it, and I love how many great vegetable they're getting without really even knowing it.  My husband's also a fan.  I make a lot of dips, and I have to say this one might be one of his favorites.  Every time I make it he comments on how much he loves it.  You can't beat healthy, fresh, and crowd-pleasing for everyone (yes, I love it too) in the family, can you?


You can use your food processor or blender for this.  I actually came across this recipe in my Ninja recipe book.  Do you have a Ninja?  Have you heard of the Ninja?  You've probably seen them on the TV infomercials before.  I have to say I didn't go out and buy one, but lucky for me, my mom did.  She gave me one several years ago, and now I'm on my third one.  Not because they've quit working, but my mom keeps buying the next model.  The Ninja in the picture above is the one I have now.  It's the Ninja Master Prep.  I LOVE this!  I have a food processor, and I do use it, but this is so small, quick, easy, and the clean up is a breeze.  We use it for this salsa, smoothies (it chops ice like a dream!), shakes, chopping veggies, and so much more.  (Apparently I'm my own infomercial.  I'll stop now.)

Here's the recipe (click on it to print your own).  It's very simple.  Easy ingredients, and with your Ninja (or any other chopping device) it really takes 3-4 pulses, and it's done!  You may want to double it if you're serving a large group.  My family of five easily finishes off one batch in one setting.

BTW, I just checked the Ninja website to see if this salsa recipe was there (it's not), but they have a bunch of others I can't wait to try.  Click here to check them out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
