If you haven’t played around with fruit in your salsa, you’ve been missing out. Now is the time to remedy that!

Blueberry Salsa

Blueberries may be small, but they’re mighty in flavor and nutrition. When smashed or blended and gussied up with a little lime juice, fresh strawberries, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, and onion, they make a wonderfully scoopable salsa you won’t be able to stop snacking on.

While this berry salsa is incredible as a dip for tortilla chips, don’t stop there. Serve it scooped over last minute chicken, grilled chicken thighs, red chile chicken and black bean tacos, or spooned over balsamic ginger salmon, just to name a few options.
