Homemade Fruit Salsa

I know buying salsa in a jar is so easy, but it doesn't have nearly as many vitamins as when you make it with fresh ingredients. Once you have all the ingredients, whipping up a batch of your own salsa is simple, delicious, and always a hit at a BBQ.

This salsa is made with tomato (a great source of the antioxidant lycopene) and all kinds of delicious fresh fruits. I love it because it's so juicy and refreshing on a summer's day. It's a much better alternative to downing a ton of greasy potato chips and fattening dip, and much tastier in my opinion.

Fruit Salsa

You'll need:

1 tomato
1 mango, peeled
1 medium peach, peeled
6-8 strawberries
1/2 cup pineapple
1 red pepper
1 small jalepeno pepper, seeded
1 small yellow onion
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
1 lime
1/2 tsp salt

Here's what to do:

  1. Dice the tomato, mango, peach, strawberries, pineapple, peppers, and onion and place in a bowl. Add the minced garlic.
  2. Chop the cilantro and add it to the bowl.
  3. Squeeze the lime juice all over the fruits and veggies, add the salt and mix well.
  4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours. Take out and allow to sit for 15 minutes before serving (it tastes better when it's not so cold).
  5. Serve with corn chips or crackers.

This type of salsa is perfect for broiled fish or chicken over a bed of greens. Super yummy and healthy.

I love making my own salsa because most salsa's I buy seem be too sour or salty tasting and I hate those flavors. I love to mix the canned chopped tomatoes with chilis, black beans, onion, cilantro, celery (for crunch), jalapenos and I put a little cayanne pepper in there. I love spicy. Fruit salsa is good too but I am always stumped on what to eat it with? Tortilla chips don't appeal to me when it comes to fruit salsa.

I've made a habanero and apple salsa that rocks. I'd have to change this recipe up a bit. I love mangoes, but I'm allergic to them. ;P
