Why You’ll Love This Strawberry Salsa

Sweet, juicy, tart strawberries with a big hit of lime – both by way of zest and juice – could not pair more perfectly with the bite of red onions, mild jalapeno heat, sultry cilantro, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. For us, this scrumptious stuff is the perfect summer staple.

Strawberry Salsa Ingredients

  • Strawberries – Fresh, in-season strawberries are amazing in this salsa! Remove the hull and dice them.
  • Jalapeno pepper – One fresh pepper, diced. Include the seeds if you like a lot of heat!
  • Red onion – For a crisp and colorful bite.
  • Lime – Include both the zest and juice for maximum lime flavor.
  • Cilantro – A must in salsa!
  • Salt & pepper – to taste.
