Fresh and healthy Strawberry Salsa recipe is the perfect addition to your meal or party.
Now to the business of the day... more strawberries! Local South Carolina (I live less than an hour from the border) strawberries are almost season. I know I've talked a lot about my love of Florida strawberries, but I also like to support farmers in my area and the fruit is always the freshest when it's grown within an hour from your house.
One summer a farmer drove up from South Carolina and set up a little table on the side of road to sell huge baskets of strawberries, which just happened to be on my way home from work. That summer I probably ate 10 baskets of those things and they were big! The ripe little berries were so fresh and flavorful because they were picked each morning. They didn't spoil for weeks. I was so sad when the following summer came and the strawberry guy didn't come back to that spot, but I have been able to find similar buckets for sale at our local Farmer's Market.
So what do you do with giant cases of berries? Well... funny you should ask...
How about a delectable Strawberry Salsa recipe!
This strawberry salsa recipe has just the right combination of sweet and savory. It even has a little heat with a seeded jalapeno. If you can't handle any heat, feel free to sub a green pepper for the jalapeno or even a poblano.
There are only 5 ingredients in the entire recipe!
The strawberries look super festive and happy piled high on a table! Can't you just imagine this at a Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day party?
It's a little tedious to cut up, but once you get going it doesn't take much time at all. No cooking or heating up the oven is involved.
I like serving it with classic tortilla chips. I crave the salty and sweet combination.
I mean... come on.... look at it? I know you want some!
