Fresh Herb-and-Tomato Salsa with Smoked Cheese

Photo: © Kana Okada

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.

Yield: Makes six 1/2-cup servings
