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

Step-By-Step

1Wearing 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.

2Add the red onion, scallions, tomato, bell pepper and coriander, and stir until well mixed.

3In 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.

4Coarsely 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.
