This is such a good dip, Strawberry Salsa. It is perfect for a party or BBQ.

Oh man just looking at these pictures and remembering how good this salsa is, makes me wish I could reach into the computer screen and grab a bowl of it.  Wouldn’t it be cool if you could grab food right out of your computer screen?  It makes me think of Star Trek when Captain Picard would ask for “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot”. It would miraculously appear for him to drink.  Sure I love to cook, but there are days I would give anything for a healthy meal to magically appear on the table. Wouldn’t you?

This is such a good dip. It is perfect for a party or BBQ.

Luckily this Strawberry Salsa is very simple and quick to make. You can have it done in five minutes.  I love the savory-sweet mix of this one.  Plus you have creamy avocado and crunchy onion.  This dip hits all the hot buttons on my taste buds.  If you have some left, serve it with grilled chicken or fish.  It will be delish.  Top a taco with strawberry salsa for a bite of freshness.

This is such a good dip. It is perfect for a party or BBQ.

I love the idea of serving this for Mother’s Day.  It would be delightful on a brunch buffet and add a pop of color to the table.  Plus it is easy enough for kids to make.  My little one loves to cut fruit and vegetables.  She even has her own chef’s knife, a 6 inch.  I watch her carefully and make sure she has her fingers tucked under.  I don’t want her cutting herself.  The great pride she feels makes up for the painstaking time it takes her.

She tries to get every single cut perfect.  I am more of a get it done kind of gal, it doesn’t matter if my pieces are not perfectly square.  Plus my daughter will happily gobble up anything she had a hand in making. Give this Strawberry Salsa a try and let me know what you think of it.  I love feedback, even if you don’t like it.  I want to know. Honest, I do.

This is such a good dip. It is perfect for a party or BBQ.

  1. This looks amaazing! I can't eat tomatoes so this is PERFECT for me! <3
  2. What a fun twist on salsa! This would be SO good with pretzels or even those cinnamon sugar pita chips! I bet the jalapeno adds a fun kick :) Thanks for sharing!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I love a sweet and spicy combination. This was amazing with pretzels - now I've got salty, sweet & spicy.
  3. This is such a pretty salsa!! I'll admit, the only fruit salsa I've ever tried was a mango salsa, but I'm game for giving strawberries a chance, especially if they look this good in the bowl. ;)
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I really enjoyed the strawberries Tracy. We make salsa with all kinds of different fruit, but strawberries are a favorite this time of year.
  4. What a great use of strawberries. Nothing like a nice fresh berry salsa!!
  5. Yummy....I make a peach salsa with fresh peaches that this remind me of. How tasty. Will have to save this for when I go strawberry picking.
  6. This looks delicious! I'll have to try this! I bet this is fantastic for so many gatherings.
  7. What an interesting sweet & spicy combo! I've never tried a sweetened salsa so this sounds very interesting. Thanks for the recipe :)
  8. How fun is this?! I love that you added cilantro to this. Sounds delish.
  9. This strawberry salsa looks amazing! So perfect for spring :)
  10. Such a perfect party salsa for spring :D Though I don't know if I could share it!
  11. I've never tried strawberry salsa before! I need to give this a taste!
  12. I love strawberry salsa, it's perfect for Mother's Day or any day, quite frankly. Yours looks absolutely amazing. I want to dive right into the dish.
  13. This looks like summer in a bowl!
  14. I promised my kids I'd take them strawberry picking and I've been wondering what am I going to do with all those berries (besides the usual jam and fruit leather for us), so I totally need this recipe.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I used Florida strawberries in this one. Our Georgia strawberries are finally ready so we will go picking too. You might want to double this recipe. It goes quickly.
  15. Beautiful! I want to dive into this right now! I'm hosting a brunch this weekend and will add this to the menu!
  16. Okay, so this sounds AH-mazing! Love the sweet strawberries combined with the spicy kick of jalapeno. :)

    It's wth the wait for strawberry season. I find that the juices from non-gmo strawberries are great mixed with the lemon or lime juice to macerate the strawberries. ather proportions of ingredients in your recipe are perfect! Tanks!

  19. Sounds great, going to try it tomorrow, BUT I don't think that it is zero carbs. Can you give me an idea of how many in a serving??
