Strawberry Salsa

Avocado and Sweet Strawberry
Avocado and Sweet Strawberry

To add a touch of spring sweetness to classic salsa, start with fresh avocado. Mix ripe strawberries, a hint of tropics with limejuice and a zing of black pepper. That’s it. A sweet salsa that is quite different from the traditional chopped onion-tomato mixture. This fruity version is great on chapati or on toasted bread.

Strawberry Salsa
(makes about two cups)

1 Avocado – seed removed and pulp mashed to smooth
1 cup strawberries – finely chopped
1 Small lime/lemon – cut to half
1/2 teaspoon – Black pepper, cracked
1/4 teaspoon – Sea salt

In a big cup, take avocado and strawberries. Sprinkle black pepper and salt. Squeeze limejuice. Combine.
Enjoy this sweet salsa with chapati/crusty bread/chips.

    Hi Indira,

    Great combination and your idea is really nice!

    Just to add to your creativity, I thought it might be good if you leave the avacado chunky instead of mashing it…..what do you think?

    Indira, Would you please consider putting a ’subscribe’ option on your blog.. where when you put a new post, the subscribers get a mail about it. please?

    Your posts are getting even lovelier by the day, as summer arrives at our doorsteps, with fresh fruits and veggies.

  • By Indira, April 16, 2009 @ 11:54 am

    Thanks friends for your lovely comments.

    Sandy: I would love the chunky version. The only reason for mashed is because I had a very ripe avocado at home for this recipe.

    Kay: Will do that by the weekend. Thanks for the suggestion.
