You can hardly find a more delightful way to add fresh fruit or vegetables to your menus than with salsas. If you have not tried a fruit-based salsa before, strawberry salsa may strike you as being off the wall. Actually, it is a lovely mix of flavors.
- 2 cups strawberries, cleaned and chopped
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tbsp chives, minced
- 1 chili pepper, seeded and minced
- 1 tbsp light olive oil
- salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
Mix all the ingredients gently but thoroughly. Take care not to crush the strawberries.
Allow the salsa to sit for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to blend. In that time, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel to keep out the fruit flies.
Serve at room temperature for the best flavor.
After the salsa is gone, if you have juices left in the bowl use it for making a fruity vinaigrette. It is loaded with flavor.
