Strawberry Salsa

One of my favorite fruits and one that appears early in the season and often one of the first plants to produce are strawberries. My dad had a strawberry patch that he would add to yearly. It was a sweet surprise when he came in with a few berries and be willing to share.

I love eating strawberries in many different ways. From fresh to desserts they all excite me. I love the yuminess of them all. Here is another great way to fix up strawberries. This recipe for strawberry salsa is great to serve to family and friends and even better to serve on a warm spring evening. Enjoy!!

1 cup finely chopped strawberries
1/4 cup finely chopped peeled avocado
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar

Gently mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Serve immediately.  You can make this a couple of hours before serving, but if you let sit too long, it will develop a liquid base.

Serve with cinnamon tortilla chips, or over top of grilled chicken, pork, or fish for a sweet and savory addition to your meal.
