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.

Game Day Salsa

Serves 4
Ingredients
4 large heirloom tomatoes, diced
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
3 scallions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor; pulse on low speed for 30 seconds or until salsa is well combined.

Remove salsa from the food processor; transfer to a serving bowl.

Serve with tortilla chips, crudités or gluten-free crackers.
