Strawberry Salsa

Absolutely brilliant to accompany any grilled dishes - perfect for a summery feast. It looks like something that should be served for dessert, but the combination of savory flavors with the sweet berries is just amazing. Do try!

Strawberry Salsa

500 g strawberries
juice of half a lemon (or one lime)
2-3 tbsp finely chopped parsley
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 tbsp neutral oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper

Cut the strawberries into small pieces. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and place in the fridge for at least one hour to let the flavors combine.

Oooo! YES, I think so. Wonder how that would some simple grilled veggies or chicken. I must try. I almost always find sweet and savory beautiful. Neat idea at the right season! Beautiful.

I could really imagine this on grilled chicken, as tanna said. What did you use it for?

This sounds great.

I make a fruit salsa using watermelon, canteloupe, honeydew, tomato, red onion, cucumber, and cilantro - all chopped very fine. We dip with lime flavored tortilla chips. It's a big hit in the summer!

Nerissa - we had grilled pork chops, and grilled sausages, and that seemed to work well.

TNP - thank you, that sounds delicous!! We don't have lime flavored tortilla chips - at least I don't think so - but I'll try the salsa when melon comes in season!!

I'm grilling pork tenderloins for a party next Sunday and with it I was planning on serving an apple curry sauce, but I was wanting to serve another sauce as well -- I think I've found that other sauce. Thanks!

Actually I think this might be really nice with a piece of grilled salmon too. Will definitely being trying this.

I ended up serving the salsa with grilled pork at one of my classes. It was a tremendous hit!
