Nutritional Benefits:

Tomatoes:

Tomatoes are a low calorie food, packed with nutrients. They are an excellent source of Vitamin C and K. They are full of anti-cancer phytochemicals such as carotene (especially lycopene).

Onions:

There are a variety of onions to choose from. They differ in size, color and taste. Each offers a slightly different flavor. For this recipe I chose red onions for their full, robust flavor. Onions are a good source of Vitamins C and B6, are a good source of folic acid and dietary fiber.

Cilantro:

Cilantro, also known as Coriander, is an herb and a spice. In Europe and Asia cilantro has a long history of use to aide in digestion, combat inflammation and help to lower cholesterol.
