Raspberry Tomato Salsa
Inspired by a gift of gourmet salsa. Dianne Koskinen of Baraga, Michigan created her own delightful version that pairs fresh tomatoes and raspberries. "My husband, Craig, and our 3-year-old son, Jordan, especially enjoy this salsa with crunch tortilla chips," she explains. "And I like that it's a healthy snack for all of us."
