Game-Day Salsa

No football party would be complete without a big bowl of salsa for dipping chips and crudites.

Chips and salsa are the perfect, traditional game-day combination. Invite all your buddies to gather around the coffee table to watch the game and munch on freshly made salsa. Forget about the canned varieties sitting on the shelves at the grocery store -- they are often filled with preservatives and extra sodium. This salsa uses fresh tomatoes, buttery avocados and zesty cilantro with a touch of salt. Serve it with crudités or corn tortilla chips for the ultimate gluten-free game day appetizer.
