Fabulous things happen in the wee hours of the night for me. Cravings and dancing in particular. I wanted strawberries (when do I not?) and remembered how yummy a nectarine I had for breakfast was. So I paired them together, enjoyed a nice snack. I decided to share the blend with others, and thought a nice salsa would attract more eaters. I made a fresh batch of this Strawberry Nectarine Salsa; it did the trick! It is sweet, fruity, and a nice welcome to spring. We ate the entire bowl in one sitting...and danced while cleaning up!
It's great served with seafood or as a dip with blue corn chips. (We had both.) Recipe is below!
(Makes about 2 cups of salsa)
- 8-10 strawberries, hulled and diced
- 2 nectarines seeded and diced
- ½ red onion, diced
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 diced tomatoes
- ½ jalapeno pepper, diced
- 2 green onions, sliced thin
- ½ cup chopped cilantro
- dash of sugar
- dash of salt
- Juice from 1 lime
Place all diced fruits, vegetables, sugar, and salt in a medium size bowl.
Add lime juice. Toss everything together well.
Place in a serving container. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Enjoy within 1-2 days for maximum freshness.
