Star-Spangled Salsa

by Sandy Todd Webster on Jun 17, 2014

Food for Thought

Three team members from San Diego–based Jimbo’s...Naturally! Natural Foods Grocer recently treated the IDEA Tribe to an informative Lunch and Learn session as part of IDEA’s ongoing wellness initiative. The Jimbo’s team demonstrated three delicious recipes and shared samples of all the food. This inspired several IDEA staffers to get in the kitchen and try their hands at these healthy eats.

This colorful fruit-based salsa, courtesy of Jimbo’s test kitchens, will be a great addition to your 4th of July celebration. Serve with organic tortilla chips, veggie sticks or a protein of your choice.

For more great Jimbo’s recipes, go to

  • 1 C organic blueberies
  • 1 C diced organic strawberries
  • 1 C diced jicama
  • 1/3 C chopped organic cilantro
  • 1/4 C finely chopped organic red onion
  • 2 T finely chopped orgainc jalapeno pepper, stemmed and seeded

Recipe Key: C = cup | T = Tablespoon

In medium bowl, combine blueberries, strawberries, jicama, cilantro, red onion, jalapeno and lime juice. Stir until well combined. Season with salt, to taste. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Make 3 cups.

Sandy joined IDEA in 2001 as executive editor of IDEA PERSONAL TRAINER and IDEA FITNESS MANAGER magazines and was promoted to lead the editorial team in 2003. More than 20 years in magazine publishing, marketing communications and creative services have shaped her straightforward approach to multi-channel communication. Early experience in Los Angeles as a sports writer/reporter, and then enriching years as a managing editor in allied health care publishing have pulled her across a spectrum of stimulating subject matter. Fitness, health and nutrition reside at the perfect center of this content continuum, she feels. A Chicago native, Sandy grew up fully engaged in various competitive sports. Her drive and dedication as an athlete translate to a disciplined work ethic and unwavering approach to challenge in her career. Shortly after graduating journalism school from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, she was recruited to L.A. for her first post in magazine publishing. After two decades of working on magazines--and now in the throes of applying the unbelieveable multi-media content delivery options available in the magazine 2.0 world--she is still "completely in love" with the creative process it takes to deliver meaningful, inspirational content to end users. She is an accomplished home cook and gardner who would love to combine those skills and passions with her health and fitness background to continue educating readers about a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle.
