The unique flavors of this sweet and spicy Strawberry Salsa pair perfectly with fish, tacos, or any Mexican dish!
Whether you are serving it with your favorite Mexican dish or with Cinnamon Chips as an appetizer, this Strawberry Salsa is the perfect addition.
SWEET + SPICY SALSA
Most people love savory salsa, but have you tried sweet salsa?
This strawberry jalapeño salsa really satisfies my snack cravings! It has all of my favorite flavors in one – savory, sweet, spicy, and salty.
The sweet, juicy strawberries pair perfectly with the chopped jalapeños, tomatoes, and cilantro. They complement each other in flavor so well.
Strawberry salsa is a tasty appetizer. It’s simple, flavorful, and a great snack or addition to any Mexican meal.
How to make strawberry salsa
PREP. Chop and slice all of the ingredients that need to be prepped. Then place the strawberries, green onions, grape tomatoes, jalapeños, and lime zest in a big bowl.
COMBINE. Mix everything together until combined. Stir in the lime juice, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix it all together.
Add the chopped cilantro right before you’re ready to serve!
Ripe strawberries. Frozen strawberries will thaw into mushy chunks so it is best to use fresh ripe strawberries. Look for strawberries that are an even red from stem to tip with a sweet aroma
Jalapeno peppers add a lot of flavor to the salsa. For less heat, remove the seeds and white membrane. For more of a kick, leave them in.
Lime zest is the easiest to produce using a citrus zester, but the small side of a cheese grater may also be used. Shred the lime peel all over, but stop once reaching the white part.
Variations. Try adding any of these to your Strawberry Salsa for a tasty variation:
- red onion
- Roma tomatoes
- a little orange juice or lemon juice
STORE this salsa with strawberries in airtight containers in the fridge. If stored correctly, it will last for about 5-6 days. Take it out whenever you’re ready to serve it!
I do not recommend freezing or canning this salsa because the strawberries will become mushy.
I love eating these sweet fruit salsas with Cinnamon and Sugar Tortilla Chips! Any flavor of Tortilla Chip will do, even lime-flavored chips would be tasty! It would also go really yummy on top of Tacos, Quesadillas, grilled chicken, Salmon, or pork.
Of course! Just add 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar or honey until you have reached the desired level of sweetness.
If you really want to add more heat you could replace the jalapeños with serrano peppers!
