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. It's sweet, savory, and has a little kick. Make sure to use fresh squeezed orange juice. It gives that fresh pop of acidity you want in salsa. We tried this with pita chips, on top of chicken, and stuffed into a pita sandwich - all were delicious. Cilantro and fresh citrus are a great combo and add freshness to the salsa. Perfect for summer!
Chop and dice onion, peppers, cilantro, and strawberries.
Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
This salsa is exceptional the day after, so if you have patience, make it the night before you plan to serve. :)
Serve together with wheat pitas, grilled marinated chicken, and fresh baby spinach, as I show here: http://martharaydeen.blogspot.com/2011/05/strawberry-lime-marinade-and-strawberry.html
