One of the things I love about this salsa is that it’s such a summery recipe and I really do love the summer season—even if it can get a little too hot at times! This salsa is made with some of my favorite fruits and veggies…strawberries, avocado, and cucumber! It’s a great twist on your typical salsa if you’re wanting to try something different. The strawberries and honey make it naturally sweet and the lime juice, chopped green chiles, and pepper give it a mild spiciness (use chopped jalapeño if you really want it spicy).
This Strawberry Salsa goes great with grilled chicken (spoon it on top) and you can also serve it on salad greens, instead of using dressing, for a tasty and colorful salad. Or have it as a snack with some tortilla chips! It’s nice that it’s both healthy and yummy!
STRAWBERRY SALSA by NancyC, adapted from Better Homes and Gardens
Makes 3 cups, about 50 calories per 1/4 cup serving
- 2 cups coarsely chopped strawberries
- 1 cup chopped avocado
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cucumber (remove seeds before chopping)
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice
- 2 Tablespoons canned chopped green chiles OR if you want it spicier, 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño (seeds removed)
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon black 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 either chill it or use it right after you make it!
