Easy Strawberry Salsa
My salsa is sweet, colorful and has just a little bit of a bite from jalapeno peppers. I use fresh strawberries and my own home-grown vegetables, but you can also use produce available year round. It's delicious with tortilla chips or even as a garnish to grill chicken or pork. — Dianna Wara, Washington, Illinois
