Did you know that we recently experience a lime shortage in the US? Limes were hard to find for a while and the ones available were expensive. Thankfully, I had Young Living Lime Essential Oil to substitute in my salsa plus a few other dishes like the Coconut Lime Chicken we eat weekly.

This easy blender salsa whips up in minutes using the taste and convenience of Young Living Lime Essential Oil
Ingredients
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, seeded
  • ½ large onion
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 5 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
Instructions
  1. Puree all ingredients in blender until smooth.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving with tortilla chips

High heat destroys the properties of essential oils but with this easy blender salsa you can benefit from the therapeutic qualities of lime oil since no baking or cooking is involved.

For a recipe involving heat like the Coconut Lime Chicken I mentioned above, I just wait until the dish cools to palatable temperature and stir the lime oil in at that point. If you bake or cook at high temps (anything hotter than a drinkable cup of coffee) the oil will still taste great in your dish, but the therapeutic value will be diminished.  And we need those therapeutic benefits!
