While in culinary school, I gained a renewed interest in sweet and savory salsas. I found this recipe in an appetizer cookbook that was given to me as a gift. It has a little sweet along with savory, spicy ingredients so I just had to try it.
It's a nice accompaniment to grilled or barbecued fish and poultry, as well as ham.

Ingredients

1
fresh jalapeno
1/2
red onion, finely chopped
2
scallions, finely chopped
1
tomato, finely diced
1 small
yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
3 Tbsp
chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1/4 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
raspberry vinegar
1 Tbsp
fresh orange juice
1 tsp
honey
1 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 c
fresh strawberries, hulled
1 1/2 c
fresh blueberries or blackberries
1 c
fresh raspberries

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wearing rubber gloves, finely chop the jalapeno (discard the seeds and pith if a less-hot flavor is preferred). Place the pepper in a mixing bowl.
2
Add the red onion, scallions, tomato, bell pepper and coriander, and stir until well mixed.
3
In a small bowl, whisk together the salt, vinegar, orange juice, honey and olive oil until thoroughly combined. Pour this dressing over the jalapeno and bell pepper mixture and stir well.
4
Coarsely chop the strawberries. Then stir them into the mixture along with the blueberries (or blackberries) and raspberries. Allow to stand at room temperature for 3 hours before serving.
5
*Defrosted frozen berries can be used in this salsa, but the texture will be softer.
