I found this recipe on Dana McDonald’s personal health and fitness Facebook page, and I absolutely love it!  This one has a lot of  ingredients, but it’s well worth the time and effort.


1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes

½ red bell pepper chopped fine

½ orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped fine

½ red onion or 4 green onions, minced

¼ cup chopped cilantro

½ clove garlic, minced

juice of ½ lime

1 tsp. raw honey

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

pinch of sea salt


1. Mix the onion and lime and salt together first in a mixing bowl and let it sit while you cut up the rest of the vegetables.

2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and enjoy!
