Making Blueberry Fruit Salsa Recipe
Speaking of 'crunch,' I crunched the side of the car this weekend. We're okay, but my pretty car isn't. I must remember that cement barriers always win. Financially and when it comes to the car. I love that the claims rep asks me if there was any damage to the barrier. Really? Not at 10 miles an hour. I'm pretty sure that the cement won on that one.
This recipe is easy to make and just needs some very simple ingredients to get started. In addition to blueberries and strawberries, you will want some lime juice to give the salsa a perfect balance of acidity, while the salt and pepper add a nice depth of flavor.
What to Serve With Fruit Salsa
This salsa is also great served with tortilla chips, as a topping for grilled fish or chicken, or even as a side dish with any Mexican-style meal. You can serve it with tortilla chips or cinnamon sugar chips.
This recipe is perfect for summertime and the blueberries are at their peak. The recipe is also versatile and you can switch out the fruits and use any combination of fruits you like. You can add in some strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and even kiwi for a different twist. The recipe is also very easy to make and doesn’t require any cooking.
Health Benefits of Salsa
Fruit salsas are also a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. They are low in calories and high in nutrients and fiber. Blueberries are especially high in antioxidants, which can help protect your cells from damage. They are also a good source of vitamin C, which can help boost your immune system.
