If you got a barbecue or potluck to go to this is going to be your best friend.  It’s distinctive and I bet no one’s had it before.  It’s sweet, tangy, and spicy ~ it’s got it all going on.  Strawberries are at their peak right now, so go for it.

A great salsa has the power to transform a ho-hum meal into something really special.  I like to think outside the box as often as I can and come up with combinations I don’t see at the supermarket.  It really does seem, with a few exceptions (hello bananas) that most fruits make amazing salsas.  It shouldn’t surprise you because, technically, even the tomato is a fruit.  So far some of my favorites have been PINEAPPLE SALSAAPRICOT SALSA  and CANTALOUPE SALSA, but MANGO and CITRUS SALSA salsas will always be my favorite favorites.   If you love salsa as much as I do, try some of these others, and then come up with some of your own!

There’s no need to get persnickety about precise measurements with this strawberry jalapeno salsa because, really, you can just chop, drop, and taste as you go.  These are just rough guidelines to help get you started.

TIP:  Remember, your salsa will only be as good as your strawberries ~ use red ripe berries and your results will be incredible.

Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa

Ingredients

  • 15-20 strawberries, hulled and chopped into a very small, even dice
  • 1/3 medium red onion, finely minced
  • handful of cilantro, well rinsed and finely chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño pepper, finely minced, seeds and all. (leave the seeds out for less heat)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • fresh cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix everything in a bowl. Taste the salsa and adjust any of the ingredients to your taste.
  2. Chill until ready to serve.

Notes:

  • Don’t make this much more than an hour or so before serving.  Like all salsas, it will wilt and the fruit will get a little mushy.  An hour is the optimal amount of time for the flavors to meld and the juices to start flowing.  Longer than that and the salsa will slowly start to lose its fresh appearance.
  • If you plan to serve your salsa with chips, make sure to chop your berries fairly small.

    Made this with some spicy honey because the jalapeno I used didn’t have much heat. I also blended it in a food processor just a little. It was so good!!

      Jalapeños can be so disappointing sometimes…I love the idea of blending this a bit, I bet that brings out the juices.

    This salsa would be an absolute game-changer when paired with halibut! I’ve featured it in my round-up of the best strawberry dishes (with a twist), thanks for creating it :)

    I suck at coming up with my own recipes, but I am a champ at following them. We had a salsa contest at work and I decided to try making this. It is SO GOOD! I wanted it to be more salsa-y, so I threw everything into the Ninja and blended it up. IT WON! Hubs and I get to go to a baseball game because of this delicious recipe, so thank you!! Also, I have shared it with at least 10 people, this is seriously some of the best salsa I’ve ever had. I followed the recipe, but next time I might try adding a second jalapeno to give it a touch more heat. :-D

      I love this, thanks for letting me know Wooot!! The thing about the jalapenos is that some seem to be nice and hot and others are a bust. Go for Serrano peppers next time for some reliable extra heat. And enjoy that game :)

          Are you eating it with chips, or alongside grilled meats and chicken, etc?

    Going to try thIs on the weekend, but I think I’ll add about half teaspoon of Cholula hot sauce, and a tablespoon of EVOO.
