Recipe: Blueberry Lime Salsa

blueberry lime salsa

As twilight begins to fall (/autumn) upon the Summer Season, this Recipe for Blueberry Lime Salsa reinvigorated my spirit to relish (/badjoke) in the hope for everlasting Summer and say NO to cooler weather and back-to-school sales.

Salsa is practically omnipresent at get-togethers and seems to always be  a second, third or last thought. Its time to give salsa respect it deserves, especially when something as magnificent as this can grace your presence. So the next time you have people over, throw out the plastic jug of salsa and give a creative salsa like this a try.

And if you’re looking to pair this with something different that the traditional pita or tortilla chip, try these baked cinnamon chips or use it as entree topper on Crispy Honey Lime Tilapia as suggested by Jessica of the How Sweet It Is Blog. Big ups to Jessica for the unique preparation of the salsa and the fantastic pictures! Recipe posted below!

Blueberry Lime Salsa

makes about 1 1/2 cups

1 cup fresh blueberries

5 medium strawberries

1/4 red onion

1 teaspoon lime zest

juice of two limes

1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1/2 avocado, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

 

Combine blueberries, strawberries, onion, lime zest, juice and cilantro in a food processor or blender and pulse. The consistency is up to you but I like to leave mine a bit chunky, so I only pulse it about 5-6 times. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired. Scrape salsa into a bowl and fold in chopped avocado. Serve with pita or corn chips, or on top of fish or chicken.
