We love salsas around here! Any kind of salsa is fine with me! I can make salsa out of just about any fruit or veg you can imagine! Evidence of that fact is here, with my Green Tomato Salsa, or my Roasted Garlic Salsa. Peach Salsa is perhaps my all time favorite! There are more salsas on BCC, here.

  • parsley or cilantro
  • fresh lime

How to Make Strawberry Salsa

  1. Just cut up any peppers that you have. I used yellow and orange bell peppers and 1/2 of a jalapeño. Start with less jalapeno and then add as needed to accommodate the heat tolerance of your guests. Chop cilantro or parsley.
  2. Chop strawberries in small pieces. Peel garlic.
  3. Grate garlic into strawberries with microplane.
  4. Grate lime zest directly into strawberries.

Add lime juice, chopped vegetables and a pinch of salt to the strawberries. Mix well. Let sit in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

How to store this salsa

Store salsa in air tight container in the refrigerator. Leftovers will last 1-2 days, but it’s best enjoyed fresh.

Pro tips for success

  • Be sure to pick the freshest, ripest looking strawberries you can find.
  • Organic berries are your best choice, strawberries can be sprayed with many insecticides, and are difficult to wash thoroughly.
  • Even when using organic strawberries, rinse the berries thoroughly, before cutting.
  • If you are serving salsa with chips, cut the strawberries and vegetables fairly fine, so that you can scoop up a bit of everything on your chip.
  • Substitute flat leaf parsley if you don’t like the flavor of cilantro.
  • Salsa is best the day it is made, but let it “rest” in the refrigerator, covered for at least 1-2 hours. After a few hours, the berries will start to lose their fresh appearance.
  • Make a quantity that you can enjoy with in a couple days. Don’t make huge batches, unless you can consume it.
  • Store freshly picked strawberries in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Do not wash the berries before storing them. They should be stored dry.
  • It’s best to remove them from the quart basket and lay them flat, trying not to lay any on top of the others. This will minimize damaging from the weight of the strawberries on top.

Tip: Smell the quart of berries when you pick them up. They should smell very sweet and strawberry-like. The better the smell, the better tasting the berry.

Serving suggestions

Serve this salsa with the traditional tortilla chips or pita chips, but, in addition, it makes a delicious topping for tacos and fajitas.

It is also delicious served alongside fish dishes, like our bullhead and seafood dishes, chicken and pork.

Sweet chips, like cinnamon sugar pita or tortilla chips really compliment this salsa.

    I’ve been hosting a “Salsa Night” every summer for a few years now & all the guests are supposed to bring what like best with their salsa. It can be an appetizer, a protein, a side dish, a salad, or a dessert! Bring enough to share for at least yourself & 2 others, or more. We’ll have the grill ready to go & people who want to can use the pool or hot tub. Every year the items people bring get more & more interesting. This year we added your Strawberry Salsa to our groups of salsas, and it went over in a great way! We ran out before all the entrees were through cooking so some of the other ladies & I ran in & made some more! We had to have it for the salads, chicken & seafoods & I wanted some for the cinnamon sugar pita chips I made that morning. We made triple what I’d started with and they ate it ALL before everyone left that evening. What a great success!

    I am definitely having my tacos and chips with this one. I went through all the salsa recipes shared by you and I would say I will have my weekends full for this month as I am going to try all of them out. Thank you for sharing. Loved the strawberry salsa the most!

    1. Thank you for your comment! You will have a lot of salsas to try! We love the chipotle salsa and the peach salsa very much, as well! Let me know how you like them all!

  5. Oh, yes please! I love my fruits in veg salads and this is a recent chance as years ago I would have never thought I could even think about it but, yes, it works perfectly for me. Delicious ????

  6. I can’t quite believe this, but I have never had a salsa with fruit in it! Ever! I will have to wait for strawberry season to come around here again but I will very happily give this a go. The mix of flavours sound absolutely divine!

  7. What beautiful colors in this salsa. This sounds so good. It’s on my to do list now to try it! Thanks for this amazing recipe.

  8. Oooh yes please. I love strawberry dips and salsas, but have never paired it with peppers – now I can’t wait to try it!

  9. I have to be honest. I get a little nervous when fruits and veggies start intermingling. But this looks so good and sounds easy, I may have to be brave and try it! I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    1. I hope you enjoy it! My son is the same way with the fruit salsas and even he likes this one! Let me know!

  10. I have made pineapple salsa before, but not strawberry. This is definitely something I need to try! I ♥ strawberries and your salsa is beautiful! Can’t wait to make it! 🙂
