I’m finding good deals on strawberries right now and thought I’d share a couple of strawberry recipes with you the next couple of days. Today it is a terrific salsa. A friend of mine introduced me to this at our last book club and I feel in love with it.
3/4 cup diced strawberries
3/4 cup diced mango
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
2 tbs. diced red onion or chopped green onion
2 tbs. chopped fresh cilantro leaves or parsley leaves for those who do not like cilantro
2 tsp. honey or to taste
Juice of 1 lime
Salt to taste
Cut up your fresh strawberries and mango. Deseed and clean out the jalapeno. Chop it very finely. Chop your onion finely. I use parsley rather than cilantro, but you chop which ever you choose for the salsa. Add the honey and the juice of a lime. Taste to see if you are happy with the sweetness. Add a pinch of salt and season with more salt and/or honey if you think it needs it.
Serve with blue corn tortilla chips. There is a great one with flax seed that I highly recommend if you can find them. Think you can get them at Target or K-Mart.
This salsa would be great with baked fish also.
Try it on some bruschetta. You can pair it with chicken or pork. Let you imagination go. I love the hot and sweet.
Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
