Strawberry Salsa

It’s the rare occasion that I make something from Family Circle magazine, but the July issue featured a couple of recipes that I made within 24 hours of first spotting them.  We enjoyed both recipes on Father’s Day—a wonderful blueberry shortcake and this excellent strawberry salsa.

If you’ve never tried a fruit salsa, you are missing out!  I highly recommend you go out and buy a pound of strawberries and make this delicious salsa.  It would work as a side dish with fish, chicken, or pork; but I made it as an appetizer for Father’s Day.  It disappeared very quickly.  I could hear my mother saying, “If there are no leftovers, you didn’t make enough.”

True for sure—next time I’m doubling the recipe!
