Oh so sweet strawberry salsa

I tried this strawberry salsa at a family gathering and I was immediately hooked.  This salsa has more flavors in one mouthful than should be legal.  It is so…..tasty.  June is strawberry picking time in New England and there is nothing quite as sweet as a vine-ripened berry.  Always use fresh, locally grown and organic produce when possible. Start with some grape tomatoes and fresh strawberries.  Since I haven’t hit the fields yet for berry picking, I purchased some strawberries and tomatoes at the local market.

This salsa is also infused with one of my favorite herbs, cilantro.  Cilantro is used in many salsa recipes and adds a very notable and in my opinion, amazing fresh taste to any homemade salsa.  I add cilantro to jarred varieties of salsa too and it perks it right up!

Try this salsa with your favorite corn tortilla chips-we tried traditional corn tortilla chips and even a few Food Should Taste Good chocolate tortilla chips! ohhh yum! Check out Food Should Taste Good and their many flavored chips  here.  {Many but not all Food Should Taste Good chips are low FODMAP–read ingredients!}
