Here’s a sweet and tangy salsa that's miles away from the spicy version people expect. Serve it as an appetizer with tortilla chips for scooping, or make it part of the main event and spoon it over white meat. —Amy Hinkle, Topeka, Kansas
Tucked into a basket with a bag of crunchy tortilla chips, a jar of this homemade salsa makes an incredible edible gift. “With only seven ingredients, it takes no time to make,” writes Jamie Milligan of Kimberley, British Columbia. TIP: This salsa also can be served warm as a condiment for pork or poultry.
My husband and I make this recipe a lot when we eat outdoors, but it’s a great flavor burst to liven up the winter, too. It makes an interesting topper for chicken tacos or other poultry entrees.——Jeanne Wiestling, Minneapolis, Minnesota
I threw this together after an overzealous trip to the farmer's market! My family loved it from the first bite You can serve it right away but the best flavor is achieved after letting the salsa rest in the refrigerator for a few hours. —Andrea Heyart, Aubrey, Texas
Other fruits are often used in relishes and sauces, but I decided to make one with my favorites - strawberries and blueberries. I get rave reviews when I serve this fruity, distinctive salsa over meat. It's also delicious atop a spinach or lettuce salad.

I'm a "transplant" here from Wisconsin. Even after 20 years, I still can't get enough of our wonderful local citrus. This is one way to work it into a main dish. The combination of tangy fruit, spicy jalapeno and distinctive cilantro is perfect over any meat, poultry or fish. We also dip into it with chips.
