Fresh Strawberry Salsa

June is National Fruits & Vegetables Month! The thing I most look forward to in June is strawberries.   We're very lucky to live around lots of farms, and we make going to pick a family outing.   Usually we bring home somewhere around 15 pounds.   We leave some for snacking, a bunch gets turned into jam, and then I like to try a handful of new recipes.   One of this year's picks is this Fresh Strawberry Salsa from Taste of Home.

I made some very minor changes to the recipe. I'm not a fan of green bell pepper, so I used red and orange. I had beautiful heirloom cherry and grape tomatoes on hand, so I quartered them up and used those. I had serranos, so I used those instead of the Anaheim.  Sadly, I am in the "cilantro tastes like soap" camp, so I used fresh parsley instead.

This is such a great dish.  So fresh and colorful.  I love all of the textures and flavors.  It's great on top of chicken in a wrap or on it's own with some tortilla chips.   Thank you to Nancy W. for sharing her recipe! Thanks also to Ellen from Family Around the Table for hosting and to all of the #FoodieExtravaganza participants for sharing their recipes!

      1. I really just started branching out into fruit versions a few years back. There's a pineapple one that we absolutely love, and a watermelon one too. https://jolenesrecipejournal.blogspot.com/2016/08/pineapple-salsa-perfect-snack-for-this.html

    3. I am cutting back on the chips for a bit so I may want to try this on some fresh salad greens. Or spoon it over some grilled fish or chicken. Yum!
