Salsa (LID)

Salsa (LID)

This is a great condiment to use while on a low iodine diet. You can put salsa on scrambled egg whites and tacos, or eat with tortilla chips (Lay’s doesn’t use iodized salt in their products) as a LID-friendly snack.


1 14.5 ounce can no-salt diced tomatoes
1 clove garlic
1/2 onion
1 – 3 jalapenos, depending on desired heat level
handful of fresh cilantro
juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt (or to taste)

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or mini food processor.
