The refreshing flavor of strawberries make for a light, wonderful salsa. You can serve it as a dipping salsa with tostadas or with cucumber and celery spears. I also like it served with most any fish or chicken dish.
Yield: 1 pint
1 cup strawberries, cut in half and quartered
½ cup sweet onion, Bermuda, Maui or Vidalia, chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
¼ cup fresh mint, rolled and thinly sliced in chiffonade strips
¼ cup crushed caribe chile
1. Combine all ingredients and allow to marinate for 15 minutes before serving.
Note: Other fruits can be substituted such as cantaloupe, honey dew, watermelon or mango. Cilantro may be used instead of the mint. The chile can be varied as well-jalapenos and other chiles work well.
