This Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa takes only 10 minutes with 5 ingredients! It’s a sweet and spicy salsa that is a total crowd pleaser and great for parties!
Happy July friends! Isn’t it crazy that half the year is now over?! Am I a broken record that just needs to accept that each month only has on average 30/31 days? Probably. In any case, it being July 1 means that the 4th of July is literally only 3 days away. If you want to be the most adored guest at your 4th of July BBQ, this Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa is definitely the recipe for you. It’ll take you only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes – and a REAL ten minutes not a timed, rushing 10 minutes.
Is it just me, or are the strawberries this season just divine? They seem to taste way better than the years before and are so incredibly juicy. That’s how we start this salsa – with deliciously sweet and tart strawberries. They are such a great base for this salsa because it’s like fruit dip on an even better savoury level. Then the rest of the party follows: red onions, jalapeños, lime and cilantro. Dice, chop, squeeze and mix, that’s it. Why aren’t all recipes this easy?
Here’s my completely favourite part about this recipe: it’s healthy. You know that on Jessica in the Kitchen we are all about easy healthy recipes, and even when I don’t say it, you can guarantee that the recipe is healthy and good for you. I kinda had to say it for this one, cause I want you guys to know that you can eat ALL of this dip guilt free. It tastes pretty amazing, is so easy to make and is GOOD for you!! I’m talking loaded with anti-oxidants, fresh and natural and low carb. Win, win friends.
You can whip this up right before your party or bbq, easily store it in a container and bring it over. Eat it with some chips. Or on top of your veggie burger, tacos, burritos…anything your heart desires. Dig in.
