Recipe by Netgirl's Healthy Cookbook

Tomatoes contain lycopene, which is supposed to prevent cancer, especially of the prostate, stomach, and lungs. Add the salsa to avocado and it makes a great guacamole. A friend and I adapted this recipe from recipes #39006, #7947, and #1078.

Top Review by Brandyberry

This is a good way to use up soft tomatoes, but the honey lost it for me. I guess I don't care for sweet salsa. I added corn and black beans to make it more colorful and my husband and our employee ate it up. Next time, I'll skip the honey.
