Happy Friday! Is it really Friday already, and is it just me or did this week totally zoom by? Not that it matters, because Friday is one of my most favourite days of the entire week. I’m talking Pizza Party Friday Night (if anyone here gets the reference, please let me know in the comments!). Every Friday is pizza night or games night or salsa and chips night, or all three (oops). This Friday is definitely looking like Strawberry Salsa Night.

I’m going to dive straight into this salsa, which by the way about to be your new FAVOURITE salsa. This salsa is so simple but so delicious, made up of onions, chopped strawberries, mint/parsley/cilantro and lime juice. Isn’t there such beauty in simplicity? What you end up with is a sweet and sour and spicy (if you so desire) combination that honestly, may not look it, but it pretty much perfect on anything. I’m talking pita chips. Tortillas. Leftover fried fish from the beach. With a spoon. The lime not only does it’s magic as it always does it salsas, it slightly macerates the strawberries and so the sweetness comes out, and before you know it you have a little natural sweet syrup forming.

I can’t make this stuff up. You pretty much just have to give it a try. Is this recipe healthy? By all means. But you’ll be too busy focusing on how delicious it is to even be harping about that. As proof, throughout this shoot (which was very short because I really wanted to eat this) I couldn’t stop taking bits and pieces because it is just THAT good! Summer get together coming up? Make it. It takes ten minutes tops, then by the time your guests are all settled in, you have your delicious syrup-y salsa ready to serve.

Are you sold yet?

And P.S., I know today is Doughnut Day, so as a treat, make this healthy salsa and reward yourself with a doughnut for dessert.

You could add some chopped jalapeños in the mix, but I would recommend a teaspoon of sugar if that’s the case. It would add a delicious kick!
