Strawberry Salsa Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Strawberries are mixed with bell peppers, onions, orange juice, lime juice, cilantro, and a touch of spiciness. Serve with grilled fish, shrimp, or chicken or as an appetizer with toasted pita triangles.

Prep Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 2-1/2 cups


  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and julienned
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and julienned
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and julienned
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Place red onions, jalapeno pepper, bell peppers, cilantro, strawberries, orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl, and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours. Fifteen minutes before serving, remove the salsa from the refrigerator, so it loses some of its chill.

This sweet summery salsa can accompany anything from toasted pita triangles to a cut of grilled fish, shrimp, or chicken.

Yield: about 2-1/2 cups.

Strawberry Salsa, Huge success, Member sgarcia54

Wow! What a great appetizer. The Strawberry salsa has been the talk of the town! People are constantly reminding me of how great it was and what a ""hit"" is was. I did not have an ounce left for myself! It truly was a success and I've made it twice since are dinner party. Thank you.
