Ahh…the flavors of the Mediterranean… Not only is the food delicious, its incredibly nutritious too! Which makes this week’s recipe perfect for a dip, a chip, or as we served it here on sliced chicken – or even topping a piece of roasted white fish.
This relish is packed with flavor and the kinds of ingredients that make it hit the anti-oxidant “ball out of the park”, including cilantro. One of the reasons we love cilantro is because it helps clean out our body of heavy metals. It really helps to detox the liver and give us a clean, healthy body to stay strong. We are always figuring out ways to practice clean eating the cilantro helps us do just that!
