Many of us look forward to enjoying some hot weather in the summer once the winter is over. We often find ourselves sitting out on the deck, taking in the sunshine as soon as the weather breaks. As the summer progresses, we turn our attention to picnics and outdoor functions, both of which require some delicious summer food. This strawberry salsa is perfect for those occasions.
Salsa is one of those treats that we enjoy all year long and, for the most part, it is a savory treat that is sometimes hot. This strawberry salsa, however, brings the flavors of sweet and tart together to make something that is beyond delicious. Serve this up with some chips and watch it disappear before your very eyes.
