Fresh Strawberry Salsa
When strawberry season hits around here, you need to run, not walk, to the fruit market! No kidding, they sell out daily! I stalk them and get my flat of berries early.
Then I'm off to make yummy recipes!
Today's recipe, Fresh Strawberry Salsa, really celebrates the lovely strawberry. The flavors are fresh and bright. The colors are popping. It's really healthy, too!
Tips for the best Strawberry Salsa
- Find the sweetest ripe strawberries you can. If they are not very sweet, no worries, you can add extra honey.
- Don't bother coring the berries. Just slice off the tops with the stem and you are good to go. Then just dice them up.
- Use fresh lime juice, not bottled.
- For an extra little burst of flavor, replace half of the lime juice with balsamic vinegar. Yum!
Can I use Frozen Strawberries?
I wouldn't. The salsa will get too wet and mushy. You might be able to make a kind of sauce with frozen berries, but a strawberry salsa needs to have somewhat firm strawberries.
Is it very spicy?
Hardly at all. That's because the jalapeños are deseeded. The seeds and white membrane have all the heat. It's really good if you like spice to leave in a few seeds!
The longer the strawberry salsa sits, the more juices come out of the berries. My personal preference is to serve it within 1 hour of making it.
If that's not possible, then just provide a slotted spoon for serving, and maybe drain off just a little of the liquid. Not all of it, as there is a lot of flavor in it!
Fresh Strawberry Salsa is a delicious summertime topping. Put this salsa on tacos, salads, tostadas, and dip those chips into this glorious condiment!
- 1-2 tsp Raw Honey (use a little more if strawberries are not sweet)
- 2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice (about 1 lime)
- ½ tsp Lime Zest
- ¼ tsp Salt (or more to taste)
- pinch of Pepper
- 1 lb Strawberries, diced
- 2 Jalapeños, diced
- ½ sm Red Onion, diced
- ½ cup Cilantro, chopped
In a bowl, mix together the honey, lime juice, lime zest, salt, and pepper.
Add the strawberries, jalapeño, red onion, and cilantro. Mix together.
Let stand for 15-30 minutes so the strawberries can release some of their juice and the flavors can marry.
Serve on tacos, over chicken, as a dip for chips, or whatever you like!
