Strawberry Salsa




I've never really gotten into the whole fruity salsa thing but I kept seeing mango salsa recipes here and there and because I've been elbow deep in strawberries I started thinking about making a colorful strawberry salsa.

I put this one together several times this season, tweaking it a little each time, but I wasn't sure what to serve it with, so here's where you all come in.  I thought I would ask you guys for suggestions what to serve it with. So far I've just eaten it like it is because I love the flavors.



2 cups strawberries, diced
½ sweet yellow bell pepper, diced
small wedege of onion, diced
1 ripe avocado, diced
2 teaspoons Rice Vinegar
Sea Salt, to taste
Lime Salt, to taste
4-5 lemon balm leaves, finely chopped

Combine evrything and allow the flavors to blend before serving.

I'm looking forward to hearing your suggestions!

  1. looks interesting, i make loads of fruit salsas, from mango to blueberry, i always add heat, as in chiles and serve it with quesadillas, fajitas, to chicken and pork dishes depending on the fruit. i also use loads of cilantro and lime, gosh i am getting way to hungry just thinking about it!

  2. YUM ~ my daughter made strawberry salsa for a family gathering this weekend. She served it with baked cinnamon sugared pita chips. It was gone before we had the rest of the food out. Looks great.

  3. Thanks for linking this with Garden Variety Wednesday!

    Your salsa is beautiful...love the bright, sunny colors.

    I'd probably serve it as a side with grilled chicken or pork. If I'm feeling adventurous, maybe fish. With the rice vinegar, lime salt, and lemon balm, it doesn't seem like this would be too sweet for that.

  4. I would go for grilled chicken, as fish may be too delicate for this bold flavours. Anyway, it looks fantastic!

  5. Your fruit salsa sounds wonderful! Like Laurie (above), my family enjoys fruit salsa with cinnamon sugar pita chips. Sometimes, I make homemade tortilla chips by baking whole wheat tortillas and giving them a light toss in cinnamon sugar.
