I think there is universal agreeance (yes, its a word) that sweet & salty food are simply irresistible. The combination of juicy, sweet fruit and salt, lime and cilantro is perfection, and on a tortilla chip, totally addictive. This time of year, we usually chop up a big batch of mango salsa as an addition to our Cinco de Mayo festivities. To me, the mango is the sweetheart of all fruits. I just cant say enough wonderful things about the sweet, pretty mango. But strawberries have been having a tough time lately. They made it to the ever shameful dirty dozen list. Poor strawberries... happens to the best of us. Don't believe the hype and just hunt down some organic berries. This salsa is too special to pass on. Its kind of like a fresh strawberry daiquiri on a chip. Strawberry Fields Forever!
Chop up the following:
- 1 pint of strawberries, hulled
- 2-5 plum tomatoes, cored (discard the wet seeds with a spoon)
- 1 (medium) red onion
- Bunch of cilantro
- Salt & pepper
- Lime, juice
Try to chop the berries and tomatoes to be about the same size. Combine all ingredients and enjoy with tortilla chips.
