Bursting with flavor, this easy 5 ingredient salsa is perfect for summer!
I always have fresh strawberries in my fridge in the summertime when they’re at their peak. Strawberries are my daughter’s favorite fruit and we love them too. They’re so easy to incorporate into a wide variety of dishes, from breakfast to lunch, dinner, and of course, dessert. And you can use them in both sweet and savory dishes. Check out my post on 10 fun ways to use summer berries.
My Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa may just be the perfect summer recipe. It’s easy, nutritious, packed with flavor, and you don't even have to turn on the stove! Plus, it has only 5 ingredients (not counting the salt and pepper)!
This simple salsa combines ripe, juicy strawberries with red onion, cilantro, fresh lime juice and just enough jalapeño pepper to give it a little kick. You may think it’s strange to use strawberries in a salsa recipe but I promise you that it’s a flavor revelation! This salsa is just bursting with fresh flavor and the sweetness of the berries is the perfect complement to the savory ingredients and the bright, acidic lime juice.
So for your next backyard barbecue, make a big bowl of this refreshing salsa. Serve it up with some tortilla chips or cucumber slices and I guarantee you’ll have some happy guests. Or try spooning some salsa on top of grilled chicken or fish for a light, nutritious dinner. Stay tuned for an upcoming post, which will feature this salsa paired with delicious salmon kebabs.
