Must Try Strawberry Salsa

It is currently 11:28PM here in Amsterdam, but I wanted to share this Strawberry Salsa recipe with you before ending the day. Luckily, it’s a quick and easy recipe, that takes 10 minutes or less (depending on how quick your knife skills are) and only calls for a handful of ingredients.

To make this Strawberry Salsa, you simply chop and toss your ingredients into a bowl. Mo (my partner) will typically make this salsa with a little bit of blending involved but alas, we have no blender here in this Amsterdam Airbnb. So, I left it chunky, to serve with Taquitos that we enjoyed for lunch yesterday, but I do recommend chopping everything a little more finely for even distribution of all the flavours in every bite. Mostly, I left it chunky for the photos–so you could see what was in this gorgeous salsa!

Look, I know some of you read Strawberry Salsa and thought, “W H A T?”. Trust me when I say this combination is a level up because it adds just a touch of sweetness, some tanginess, tartness and an element of surprise. If strawberries aren’t in season, not to worry! You can substitute with a few other fruits as well.

So what’s in this Strawberry Salsa?

  • Strawberries! Of course! But you can also use fruits like peaches, nectarines, mango and pineapple. We’re not adding too much, so don’t worry, it won’t overpower the salsa. Remember, raw onions are pretty powerful 😉
  • Tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Fresh lime
  • Jalapeño pepper
  • Salt + pepper
  • Cilantro to garnish

Secrets to success

I say this all too often, but adjust this recipe to taste. Everyone takes their salsa a little differently, so if you like more onion, add more onion. This is YOUR salsa, so make sure you’re tasting as you go! Feel free to add any additional ingredients, make substitutions–do your thing.
