I’m always trying to find a new way to flavor my meats without adding tons of fat yet drenching it with tons of flavor. I have finally found a solution that’ll keep your bottom fit and your wallet thin: salsa and vinegar. No silly, not at the same time! I mean, if you want to be adventurous, then by all means, go ahead! But I know for sure that each on their own make for healthy and tasty meals.
Salsa: Salsa has turned into one the tastiest ways to not only top off a nice chicken breast but also to dress up a salad. It brings the flavor out with only ¼ of the calories that are found in most dressings. My favorite salsa is Santa Barbara Mango and Peach Salsa found at Costco.
Vinegar: Apple cider, balsamic, rice—whichever vinegar you enjoy the most can provide a base for a marinade. Although vinegar by itself may not taste too shabby, the best way to make a marinade is by using the vinegar to transport the seasonings deep into the meat. Mix at least one cup of vinegar with your favorite spices and let the meat soak for a few hours or even overnight. My favorite? Balsamic with rosemary and garlic! Especially good on chicken (see above!).
