Running out of things to make with fruit this summer? I have the solution. This fruit salsa is easy, tasty and will sure to be a win no matter who you have around. There is just something about fruit in the summer that just makes me happy. Maybe it’s how colorful it is, or could be just the ease and versatility of using it in the kitchen. Regardless, I love fruit and adding fruit to anything is a win in my book.
To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of summer. I would much rather be cooped up in a house around a cozy fire with a great book and a warm soup. However, when you give me the refreshing taste of fruit in the summer… I quickly begin to change my mind and jump ship from the winter-bandwagon and become a summer girl.
No matter what type of season you love – I promise this Fruit Salsa will be a winner in your book.
A couple of things to note about the recipe. I really don’t like jalapeños, so depending on the crowd – I won’t use them. Note: They do really make the salsa better – I just am not the biggest fan of spicy! Secondly, I have several friends that do not like cilantro, so I started subbing mint to get a nice additional flavor. This recipe works just as great with mint and I actually prefer it that way.Print
- 2 cups finely diced strawberries
- 1 mango chopped
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 1/8 cup diced jalapeño, seeds removed
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, I sub this for mint around some people because cilantro can be polarizing.
- 1 tablespoon honey, I usually add a bit more if I think it needs it.
- Juice of 1 lime (1 tbsp + a little)
- Mix everything together and serve!
Best if made a day ahead because the fruit will naturally soak up all of the flavors and will produce a better salsa. But will still be delicious if you can’t wait and you need to eat it now!
