March 21 is California Strawberry Day. In honor of this day, Allow me to share with you my friend Erin's famous Summer Strawberry Salsa. Conveniently, it tastes just as good no matter which season you are in!
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 1/2 medium red onion
- 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tsp of salt
Clean your strawberries, bell peppers, jalapeño pepper, and cilantro leaves. Remove and discard the stems of your cilantro, finely shred, and set aside. Hull and chop your strawberries and place in a medium mixing bowl. Chop your red onions, bell peppers, and jalapeño pepper and combine in mixing bowl with strawberries. Add orange juice, lime juice, cilantro, and salt and combine until evenly mixed. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
5 minutes before serving, remove the salsa from the refrigerator and stir. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!!
