I just love fresh strawberries! Besides being delicious, they’re high in vitamin C. Vitamin C boosts the immune system and helps the body handle stress. A half cup serving of strawberries contains 51.5 mg of vitamin C, about half of our daily requirement. The combination of sweet, spicy, and salty in this recipe will keep your guests double dipping!
2 cups of fresh strawberries, diced
1 large mango, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, chopped
1/8 cup of red onion, minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes or 1/2 jalapeno pepper, diced (remove seeds for less heat)
Juice of 3 fresh limes
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp each of sea salt and black pepper
1) Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir.
2) Salsa is best served on the same day it’s made, and is excellent served with gluten-free organic corn tortilla chips, cucumber slices, or as a side dish to fish or chicken.
