A simple and refreshing way to serve a tasty Strawberry Salsa is to serve it with tacos. It goes well with many Mexican favorites, including chicken fajitas, burrito bowls, and taquitos. For a twist, you can try serving it with grilled fish or grilled proteins. Regardless of the dish, it will be sure to impress your guests! Read on to find out how to make it yourself!
Trust me, I know it sounds odd. In fact, when I tweeted that I would be making this salsa I got mixed replies. Some said that honestly, it just sounded funny.
Well can I be honest? This salsa is simply delicious. It’s not what you think… it’s better. It’s your standard chunky salsa with tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, lime juice and more, but sweetened with the addition of fresh, sweet strawberries. It works, and it works well. We ate the salsa with chips and beer, a classic trio. But I think the salsa would be good on chicken, tacos or even fish.
And just to make sure I am not crazy, I invited over a non-foodie friend to try this salsa. I did not warn him, nor tell him about the strawberries. We cracked open a beer, opened the bag of chips and started going to salsa town. Halfway through it I think he realized it was a little different and somewhat special because he asked me if there were strawberries in it. Bingo!
Long story short, he loved the salsa. I love the salsa.
You will love the salsa.

Tips And Tricks
Strawberries don’t continue to ripen after they are picked. When choosing berries, select those with green caps and red flesh inside. Check the ripeness of the berries by checking their color. If the berries are white on the inside, they are not ripe and should be discarded. To make a fresh strawberry salsa, use only ripe cranberries. Then, chill the mixture and serve it with nacho chips!
Strawberries are best used during strawberry season. However, thanks to modern agricultural methods, you can find strawberries throughout the year. If you’re using strawberries out of season, they will be less sweet and crunchy. In these cases, a little lime juice, honey, and salt will make the fruit soft and delicious. It’s especially tasty with lime-flavored tortilla chips. The perfect salsa is made when you’re enjoying it with your family and friends!
Strawberries are best in season in early May to mid-July. This means you can buy them all year round, but they tend to be more tart and less sweet. In this case, using frozen strawberries is not recommended. They’re too watery and won’t be ripe. Instead, use the freshest strawberries you can find. They’ll keep their freshness for a longer period of time.
In addition to using fresh fruits, strawberries are a wonderful way to help kids practice their knife skills. This salsa pairs well with grilled fish, chicken, or any other healthy food, and will be a crowd-pleaser no matter the occasion. While making this delicious salsa with your kids, remember to supervise them closely. This way, they won’t be tempted to eat too much and will be more likely to be safe in the kitchen.
In addition to the fresh fruit, the strawberry salsa should also include red onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and basil. It’s important to note that the fruit in this salsa is not necessarily sweet. Its flavor is naturally sweet. If it is too sweet, you can add a teaspoon of honey. To add tanginess, you can squeeze in two jalapenos. Then, taste it with your fork.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants. They are the perfect party food! If you’re a vegetarian, you’ll love strawberry salsa with grilled chicken. Just make sure that you choose ripe strawberries and avoid soft ones. They’ll be sweeter, so it’s better for you to avoid them from being too soft. If you don’t have a blender, ripen them in the refrigerator and use a food processor.
To make strawberry salsa, choose ripe strawberries. They should be firm, dark red, and smell good. You can find them at farmstands. Be sure to choose the ones that are not too soft or over-ripe.

If you’re entertaining guests, it’s the perfect appetizer.
