Strawberry Salsa and other fruit salsas

Happy Friday folks and the beginning to what is a long weekend for most people. This Friday 5 is about summer fruit and what can be more summer than  fresh Strawberries?

When I visit my parents in the summer time my dad always asks me to make this Strawberry Salsa. I'll probably be making it this weekend so I thought now would be a good time to share the recipe.

1. Start with 3 cups of diced strawberries

2.  Then add
1/2 cup of minced green or red peppers
1/2 cup of green onion
2 teaspoons of jalapeno peppers

3. Mix up
1 Tablespoon of Lime juice
1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon  of Splenda
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt

4. Toss all ingredients together and set in fridge to chill until the strawberries become juicy.  My dad likes it with a bit of a kick to it. If you don't like your salsa that way, use less jalapeno.

5. Enjoy with your favorite pita chips or tortilla chips.

We've also had Pineapple Salsa, and Peach Salas (store bought) and have seen recipes for Watermelon Salsa that we hope to make sometime this summer.   What other kinds of fruit salsa have you had?    -L

We are linking up with the Friday 5.
