Fruit Salsa Recipes

Spring has finally sprung in Georgia and the pollen has started to subside.  The weather is in the perfect zone right now.  Cool and breezy 70s during the day and 50s at night so you can keep the windows open all the time.

Time for fresh air to come through the house and blow out all the stale winter air!  Perfect for Spring cleaning.  Or sitting outside with friends, with a cocktail in your hand, and just talk about all the things that we are planning on cleaning but not actually getting to.

Because we are too busy enjoying just being outside!

One more thing that is perfect right now, the fruit!

Going to the farmer’s market now means you can find ripe strawberries (cheap) and lots of fresh herbs.  I can’t grow them because of my black thumb, so I get mine from the market, plant nursery, or my friend Chrissy’s backyard.

Don’t worry, she knows I steal some.  She has more than she can use anyway and we don’t want to waste it!!

FAQ about Fruit Salsa:

  • Q: How far in advance can you make this?
    A: Once you dice the fruit so small it will start to release its juices.  I wouldn’t make this more than 2 days in advance.  And you might have to drain off any excess juices that accumulate during storage.
  • Q: If I have an allergy to a specific ingredient can I substitute it?
    A: Of course you can!  I just keep notes of the total amounts of fruit and then use what I have.  If I can’t find good strawberries I would just add more of something else.
  • Q: Can you use another herb besides mint?
    A: I haven’t found one that I like as much I love the mint, but feel free to experiment with herbs that you know you like.

I bet this salsa would be great on grilled chicken or fish, too! And what a great idea to serve it in a cantaloupe bowl!
