Homemade Salsa Verde

Ingredients:

1 c. Thrive Chili Peppers

1/4 c. Thrive Sliced Onions

3 cloves garlic

4 peeled and halved Tomatillos (looks like green tomatoes with a lacy green skin over them.)

1 t. Thrive Cilantro

1/2 t. Thrive Chef’s Choice Seasoning

1/2 t. Thrive Peppercorn Blend

2 T. Olive Oil

1/2 c. water

 

Directions:

Cook tomatillos in water until they are soft. Put all ingredients in blender and process until as smooth as you desire. I like it a bit chunky. This will store in the fridge for a few days.

Best Chicken Salad Ever! Recipe picture showing dry and prepared salad in 4 oz canning jars.

Best Chicken Salad Ever! Meal in a Jar

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Thrive Chopped Chicken

1 T. Thrive Chopped Onions (FD) (not dehydrated version, they won’t refresh as fast)

1 T. Thrive Chopped Celery

1 T. Thrive Sweetened Cranberries or you can skip this or substitute Thrive Red Seedless Grapes (I like the sweet/tangy contrast!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of mayonnaise (you can use any mayo, but Olive oil variety is good for Keto or Paleo diets!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of Dijon Mustard (you can sub the mustard, but Dijon gives it the best flavor IMHO!)

Pinch of Thrive Chef’s Choice Seasoning

Pinch of Thrive Peppercorn Seasoning

 

Instructions:

Put the ingredients in 4 oz canning jar, shake gently to mix, then put the condiment packets down the side or on top.

When ready to eat, remove the packets, add their contents to the jar with 1/4 cup water, shake well, then let rest for 5-10 minutes in fridge or ice bucket. It may seem too watery at first, but that will thicken up during the rest time.

Voilà! Instant lunch!

It’s even better if you mix it first thing in the morning and let sit in fridge until lunch time!
