i love birthday parties- especially ones where you can come
and eat and eat and eat and no one notices because there are
so many guests and so much food to choose from.
last weekend, the boys and i attended a fabulous one year old's birthday party
and we fell head over heels in love with this delicious strawberry jalapeno salsa!
spicy and flavorful, this salsa proves that not everything with strawberries
has to necessarily be sweet. i wanted to dip a chip in it, slather it across a
veggie burger or even put it in a bowl and eat it all by itself! yum!
as soon as i got home, i had to re-create it.
here's the recipe i found- make it for your next summer party,
or if you're like me- for a party of one ;)
1 pint of strawberries, hulled and diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (keep seeds for more spice!)
1/2 small red onion, diced
zest from juice of one medium lime
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
1) add all ingredients into a large bowl and add salt and pepper to taste
2) keep refrigerated or serve fresh with lime tortilla chips
3) i dare you not to eat it all in one sitting ;)
