Savory Strawberry Salsa


This is a nice twist on your typical salsa if you’re wanting to try something different. I slightly adapted this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. The strawberries and honey make it naturally sweet and the lime juice, chopped green chiles, and pepper give it a mild spiciness. This goes great with grilled chicken (spoon it on top); you can also spoon it on salad greens (instead of using dressing), for a tasty salad. Or have it as a snack with some tortilla chips. It’s yummy and healthy, too! This recipe makes 12  1/4 cup servings (or 3 cups).

SAVORY STRAWBERRY SALSA (adapted from Better Homes and Gardens)

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup chopped avocado
  • 1/2–3/4 cup coarsely chopped cucumber (remove seeds before chopping)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. canned chopped green chiles or 1/2-1 Tbsp. finely chopped jalapeno chile pepper (seeds removed) if you want it spicier
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium-size bowl; if using on a salad or serving with chips, cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours. If serving with grilled chicken, you can use it right after you make it. 51 calories per 1/4 cup serving.

Here’s how you can serve it with grilled chicken…it’s really good!
