Sneak it in the salsa

At our house, tortilla chips with some kind of dip - hummus, salsa, or guacamole - are on the menu most days. Usually we are dipping our lunch (at about 10:30 am). A friend turned me on to a super sneaky, excellent way to get the kids to eat raw zucchini (a prolific grower in Colorado gardens!) *and not even know it.* Put it in the salsa. It actually works to sweeten it up a little, so even my kids who aren't crazy about spicy foods love it. As a mom, I know that giving them tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeno, and zucchini mixed together is like serving up some health in a bowl, which makes me all kinds of happy. And really, who couldn't use a little more happy?

Time for lunch...
