  4. Add avocado and fold into other ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Tips

  • Placing whole strawberries in the freezer for approximately 5 - 10 minutes will make them easier to process.
  • Serve salsa with toasted corn tortilla chips for a refreshing appetizer.
  • Serve salsa as a topping with grilled fish, shrimp, crab cakes or pan seared salmon.
  • Serve salsa with pan seared or grilled marinated tempeh.
  • Substitute cilantro for fresh basil leaves.
  • Serve salsa chilled.
