Yay! It is finally summertime and time for delicious, luscious spring berries and fruit. Finding new ways to incorporate these ingredients into everyday meals is always my objective. Today I bring you Strawberry Salsa.
This Strawberry Salsa recipe uses sweet strawberries with cooling cucumber, red onion, basil and zesty white wine vinegar for a juicy dip or condiment.
I know what you asking yourself. You are thinking that sound SOOOO good, but what do I put Strawberry Salsa on?
Lots of things! You can use it on yogurt or vanilla ice cream, as a dip for cinnamon and sugar pita chips, use it on tropical tacos, top grilled fish or seafood or even on my Strawberry BBQ Chicken!
While I love strawberries so much that I just eat them raw right out of the container, I generally have a batch of Strawberry Salsa ready in the refrigerator. It is perfect for drop-by guests or even a late afternoon snack.
What does salsa mean? Salsa just means sauce. Any sauce, really, so it can totally be a fruit salsa.
The only constant with salsas is that there is acidity. For this strawberry salsa , that is the white wine vinegar.
Since it is so unique and colorful, your guests and family are sure to love it, rave and ask you for the recipe.
