Fresh Herb-and-Tomato Salsa with Smoked Cheese

Photo: © Kana Okada
Yield Makes six 1/2-cup servings
The Good News: Inspired by an Italian Caprese salad, this tomato salsa is full of calcium-rich cheese. It's so chunky it could be eaten on its own with a fork, but it's also wonderful with shredded chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed yellow and red grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 cup finely diced smoked Gouda, smoked cheddar or smoked Monterey Jack cheese (2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons shredded basil
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, toss the tomatoes with the cheese, cilantro, basil and chives. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
