This is the first year in 14 years that I was not able to get out and go strawberry picking. Although disappointing, the selection at the downtown Oshkosh Saturday Farmers Market has been outstanding. Last weekend I had an abundance of strawberries, so I whipped up some strawberry jalapeno salsa for our wine and cheese extravaganza that we have each weekend. I can’t really tell you how much of anything I added, as I just threw it together, taste tested and added a little more of this and that, so its kind of guess. So, that being said, you can make as spicy as you want to leave out any ingredients that don’t fit your tastes. As much as I enjoyed this, I think it would be fun to add a little peach, or mango or even pineapple. Mmm, that makes me think that maybe this weekend, I will bring back my pineapple salsa.
Strawberries (around 25 chopped), 1/4 C red onion diced, a small bunch of cilantro, chopped, 1 jalapeno, without seeds, chopped, TB lime juice, maybe a little more, black pepper, and a TB sugar.
Add all ingredients together and serve right away. The next day, it was pretty mushy, so don’t make too far in advance.
