Marinated Tomatoes and Onions

Tangy, flavorful, and just sweet enough to satisfy any taste. These delicious marinated tomatoes and onions are a universal topper for just about anything you can dream up. We love it most on our Salsa Verde Tacos. They add a little kick with the apple cider vinegar and balance out the zing of the onions with the all-natural sweetness of agave. Yum!

A good friend of mine is always experimenting with new ideas and came up with this quick and easy topping. These marinated tomatoes and onions are at their most robust flavoring after being refrigerated for at least one hour. However, if you are in a pinch with time, they are still delicious after marinating for only 15 minutes. Don’t let time hold you back from adding this topping to tonights dish.

What can I use as a substitute for coconut aminos?

Coconut aminos serves as a popular soy sauce substitute made from fermented coconut palm sap. It’s soy, wheat and gluten-free. Plus, it is much lower in sodium than soy sauce, making it a great healthy alternative. While it’s often associated with the same health benefits as plain coconut, there isn’t any research that confirms this. It definitely out weighs soy sauce in our home!
