SMASH & GRAB : Salsa Dip

It's all very well munching on raw veggies for your zero propoint snacks to fill you up, but sometimes you might just fancy something a little tasty to go with them. My homemade salsa is easy-peasy, takes 30 seconds and at 0pp won't take you into any dipping danger zones!


You Will Need : (Makes enough for 2 large ramekins or 4 smaller portions)

It is 0pp/approx.125kcal for the whole amount

1 small onion
1 clove garlic
20 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons passata
Juice of 1 lime
Black pepper
1/2 teaspoon artificial granular sweetener
A few fresh coriander leaves

 Optional kick
A few drops of tabasco or chilli sauce


Chop the onion and garlic roughly, then pop all the ingredients together in a food processor and pulse-blend until you get your required consistency. Finely diced salsas are attractive, but I find that a smooth blend is much easier for dipping. 
Taste, then adjust the flavour to your liking - a little more pepper, a splash of chilli.


Initially, the salsa will appear runny, but if you pop it into a bowl in the fridge, it seems to thicken up naturally after a few minutes.
This recipe makes enough for two generous ramekins. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Keep covered in the fridge.
Will stay fresh 2-3 days.


 Serving Suggestions

Serve like I did with fresh cucumber and carrot sticks. I recycled a corner yoghurt pot, which worked perfectly! You could also serve with a packet of WeightWatchers Nacho Cheese Tortillas which are 2pp/83kcal per pack.

Salsa makes a delicious relish topping for a toasted wrap or burger, adding a zesty garlic punch for no extra propoints.


Do the salsa!
