This fresh salsa will wake up your taste buds! While you are enjoying it, read this study that found ex- smokers and non-smokers who ate good amounts of fresh tomatoes and apples slowed the decline in lung function.

1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 c fresh tomatoes, diced
1/2 c thinly sliced apples (such as Fuji or Honeycrisp)
2 tbsp jicama, chopped
2 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tsp fresh basil, chopped
Salt to taste
1 tbsp lime juice
11/2 tsp white wine vinegar



Directions: Combine garlic, tomatoes, apple, and jicama in a medium-sized skillet and sauté gently over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes to warm and meld flavors. Add cilantro, basil, and salt; drizzle lime juice and vinegar over top and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, keeping fruits warmed but crisp. Drain some of the juices, if desired; refrigerate until chilled. Enjoy as a dip or side dish.
