Here is a great little spring-time twist on traditional salsa!

Since strawberry season is right around the corner here, and our local market is already filled with fresh berries from the south – we decided to mix up our traditional salsa recipe using strawberries and avocados.

The taste is a perfect blend of sweet and savory flavors – with a nice finish of warm heat!

Better yet – with the weather finally warming up enough to get some ‘serious’ work done outside – this is a quick and easy recipe  to whip up – taking just a few minutes  from start to finish.

Ingredients:

  • 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 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Agave Nectar, honey or white sugar

Instructions:

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.

Enjoy!
