Strawberry Salsa

MarthaRayDeen -


This was part of an entry I submitted for the South Carolina Strawberry Festival recipe contest. Although I did not win first place, I was honored to receive the "Queen's Choice" award and a yellow ribbon. The strawberries came from my own garden and I was lucky enough to have a plentiful amount of them to pick. (See strawberry lime marinade and chicken pitas for accompanying information on the entire recipe submission.)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There's nothing better than fresh chopped salsa and you will not be disappointed by this flavor-packed recipe. We loved the sweet and savory combination of the onions, peppers, and strawberries. Definitely use fresh squeezed orange juice. It gives that fresh pop of acidity you want in a salsa. Top grilled chicken with this salsa, stuff into a sandwich or dip some chips. However you serve delightful salsa, people will be asking for the recipe. The Test Kitchen
