About Me

Hello. I started this blog to write about what I do in my chosen profession : a housewife. Some day I might cook or bake something interesting and enlist my 2 year old to help, on another day I make something from scratch instead of buying it from the store and sometimes I craft with my daughter. Once in a while, we travel or have a fun day outside. I am also doing what I can to recycle and reduce waste. I am still learning all of this and documenting my journey through this blog

Strawberry salsa

The last in the series of the strawberry saga : the unusual strawberry salsa. Fruit salsas, specially mango salsa is well known but strawberry salsa, not so much. This is a great alternative to the regular pico or tomato salsa. It even looks just the same as the regular salsa. Only after scooping it with a chip and biting into it, do you realise there is something different about this salsa. The strawberries I used were not very sweet. They were just perfect for the salsa providing the right combination of tartness and sweetness.
Addictive Strawberry Salsa with Chips
Strawberry salsa

We polished off the entire bowl of this addictive salsa in one sitting. We had brown rice and kale chips from Costco and they went so well with the salsa. Just grab your favourite scoopers and a big batch of this salsa for a memorable movie night at home. Speaking of memorable, just writing about this salsa, makes me wish I could have some of it right now. Smiley
