Meatless Monday: Blueberry Salsa Served with Food Should Taste Good Chips + Giveaway!

Hello Darlings!

I am loving prepping for the Fourth of July, so I knew I had to do a special patriotic Meatless Monday this week. And is there anything more American than red, white, and blue salsa made with blueberries grown in the US? I think not. This recipe is both super simple and very delicious, perfect for whipping together the morning of your Fourth of July Barbeque! (Giveaway at the end of this post! (now closed))


- 1 Pint Blueberries
- 2 Red Peppers, Diced
- 1/2 Red Onion, Diced
- 2 JalapeƱos, Diced (Wear gloves while cutting these- their oils can burn!)
- 3 Tablespoons Cilantro, Finely Chopped
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- Juice of One Lemon

Combine all ingredients, mix well, making sure to squish some of the blueberries- it’s as simple as that!

The best way to serve a delicious homemade salsa is with a brand of chips known for being made with high-quality ingredients and by a health conscious company. I was lucky enough to receive a sample box of four varieties of Food Should Taste Good chips just as I was dreaming up the blueberry salsa, perfect timing if I do say so myself!

I served the blueberry salsa with Food Should Taste Good’s Cantina tortilla chips. Made with only three ingredients, they are simple but incredibly delicious and have a super satisfying crunch! Certified vegan, you know you’re not putting something harmful into your body.

Of course, I couldn’t just stop at serving one variety of delicious chips; I had to try the additional three flavors I was sent. Thank goodness I did! Here is a quick rundown on my thoughts on the Multigrain, Olive, and Kettle Cooked Sweet Potato varieties!

This is the variety that that originally got me hooked on Food Should Taste Good chips. I tried them out at my local store and loved that they were certified vegan, gluten free, and all natural. I know that some people assume that when you take gluten and animal products out of some foods they can taste bland, but with Food Should Taste Good the opposite effect is achieved. The chips are flavorful, slightly sweet, perfectly seasoned, and like the other Food Should Taste Good varieties has that all-satisfying crunch.

I hadn’t tried Food Should Taste Good’s Olive variety until this week. Boy was I missing out! These are my new favorite! Made with black, green, and kalamata olives, garlic, and sea salt, they have a delicious, savory Mediterranean taste that would go perfectly with hummus. (Or you can eat practically the whole bag, by yourself, plain, like I did.) This variety is also all natural, gluten free, certified vegan, low sodium, cholesterol free, and has no trans fats; how is that for being super healthy on top of being delicious!?

I am a bit of a sweet potato connoisseur. If I am going to eat something that is made with sweet potatoes it has to be top notch. Often, I feel that many brands of sweet potato chips I’ve tried have been overly greasy and not very fresh tasting. Leave it up to Food Should Taste Good chips to break the mold! Being kettle cooked cuts the grease, and leaves a crunchy, crisp chip. Made only with sweet potato, sunflower oil, and sea salt, the Gluten free, certified vegan chips taste fresh in their simplicity, really letting the sweetness of all natural sweet potatoes steal the show. These are, by far, the best variety of sweet potato chips I have ever tried. Officially addicted.

Now that I’ve raved about how great the Food Should Taste Good brand chips are how would you like to win a sample box of your own?
