It may be a bit early where you live for prime strawberries, but I wanted to introduce you to my favorite strawberry salsa recipe. No doubt if you spend any time in the Mexican cuisine space, you’ll encounter different varieties of salsa, so this recipe is really just another flip on a classic tortilla chip dip.

The finished salsa looks so fresh and delicious, you may just want to keep this all for yourself!

What you might not expect from strawberry salsa is how well your delicious berries will go with the spicier onion and jalapeno pepper pieces. It surprised me at how fresh everything tasted and it was a very nice twist on an old classic.

You won’t need a lot to get started, just a bowl to mix everything in, a cutting board, a knife and a few measuring spoons.

Strawberries and cilantro are the stars of this salsa recipe, but the peppers and onions add a spicy kick!

Mix Your Seasonings

I like to add my maple syrup, lime juice and salt to the resealable container I plan to keep the salsa in.

If you don’t have fresh limes, you can use lime juice (2 tablespoons). For an extra bit of flavor, you can also add in some lime zest, but it’s unnecessary.

Cut Your Veggies

Start by hulling your strawberries, that means removing the green tops!

Next up, you’ll want to slice up all your veggies. With the strawberries you want to hull them (remove the top) and then cut up into bite-sized pieces.

Once you cut all your strawberries into bite-sized pieces, it's time to combine it with the rest of the ingredients!

If you like a bit more spice in your salsa, you can keep a few seeds from your pepper in, otherwise remove all the seeds and cut the jalapeno pepper into smaller pieces.

Cut up the onions and cilantro in bite-sized pieces.

Mix It Up

With all your ingredients in your bowl, you simply mix it all up and then it's ready to serve!

The last step in this salsa prep is easy. Add everything up together and mix it well.

Expert tip: add everything to a food storage container with a lid. You can just pop the lid on and shake it right in there.

Either serve your salsa immediately with tortilla chips or refrigerate for a few hours to let the ingredients meld together a bit more. The salsa can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days.

You can also serve this salsa with your favorite crackers. My favorite is actually these pretzel chips from Snack Factory (You can find them in most grocery and on amazon).

Final Thoughts on my Strawberry Salsa Recipe

Delicious strawberries mingle with peppers and onions to make a delicious salsa!

For the longest time, I viewed salsa as a tomato-based type of condiment, but this recipe definitely gave a unique twist on a classic recipe. Strawberries have a sweetness to them and the cilantro balances them out so that you’re left with a very fresh tasting and delicious chip dip.

If maple syrup isn’t your favorite, other substitutions you can try are honey or agave syrup. If you aren’t a cilantro fan, you can use parsley instead. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Only swap one ingredient at a time, but it’s definitely a recipe you can make a little different by substituting a single ingredient.
