QUICK APPS & FOOTBALL SNAPS: Week 3 – Strawberry jalapeno salsa
I promise, I’m done with veggies for the time being – kind of. This recipe has veggies in it, but this is something you can enjoy on some good carby things: the perfect tortilla chip or slab of doughy bread.
Welcome to the world of salsa.
Salsa, a typically Mexican fare, comes in all shapes and sizes, though the tomato-based version is probably what just came to your mind when you saw the word.
Salsa roja, or red sauce, is made up of tomatoes, chili peppers, onion, garlic, and coriander. Another common variation is pico de gallo, made of tomatoes, lime juice, chili peppers, onions, cilantro leaves, and other coarsely chopped raw ingredients.
And then there’s this salsa, which throws it all off by adding a fruit.
Week 3 (Sept. 18-22): Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

The NFL has been in the news a lot this past week – and, quite honestly, for nothing good. Let’s get you off those negative topics and onto the actual game, if only for a little while.
Hey, Philadelphia Eagles, meet DeSean Jackson! Oh, what’s that, you know him? Philly didn’t resign the wide receiver, and so he went to the Washington Redskins – the team the Eagles face this week at 1 p.m. on Fox on Sept. 21. Also, the Denver Broncos are traveling to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch against the Seahawks on Sept. 21 at 4:25 p.m. on CBS.
*Note that all times are EST and you may not be able to get certain games, depending on the area in which you live.
