  2. Remove stem, seeds, and ribs from jalapeño, mince, then add to your berries.
  3. Add freshly squeezed lime juice, a drizzle of evoo or avocado oil, and as much fresh cilantro as you’d like!
  4. Lastly stir in a pinch of salt (adjust to taste) and a little black pepper (optional) and toss it all together.
  5. Serve over your choice protein, salad, tacos, or dive in with chips as a snack! This salsa is a bit legendary with cinnamon sugar pita chips. You can even add chopped pineapple or mango to the salsa if you have some on hand – it’s amazing!

Recipe Notes

Feel free to double or triple this recipe as needed for all your salsa shenanigans!

I skipped adding any sort of sweetener to keep this strawberry salsa Vegan, Paleo, Whole30, and Keto compliant.

If you'd like to add a bit of sweetness that's a-OK! A few teaspoons of honey or maple syrup makes a wonderful addition if desired and can also sweeten up less ripe berries. The riper the berries the sweeter the salsa will be!
