Easy Restaurant-Style Salsa

Easy Restsaurant-Style Salsa

This week has been all about essential oils and different recipes that use different essential oils.

Today I’m sharing another easy and tasty recipe that uses two  oils. And did I mention it’s easy?

I love going to Mexican restaurants and loading up on chips and salsa before my meal comes. Not to mention the bowl of this restaurant-style salsa I keep in the fridge. I don’t even put it a little bit in a small bowl! I just take the lid off and go for it. Needless to say, that’s my personal bowl of salsa. 🙂

This salsa recipe uses lime and cilantro essential oils. Again, my eyes were opened up all kinds of wide when I learned not only that these oils existed, but that you can use these oils in food. Love!! My favorite thing about the cilantro oil is that I didn’t have to pull a bunch of cilantro leaves off to make this salsa. All it took was 2 little drops of the cilantro oil and I got the same amazing cilantro flavor I would have if I had chopped up a bunch a put it in the salsa. This was by far the fastest salsa I’ve ever made!
