Strawberry Salsa

Strawberries made their appearance at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market this past Saturday. Summer is truly here! They will be available for the next 3-4 weeks. There is nothing like the sweet aromatic flavor of fresh, Upper Peninsula strawberries. Of course they are delicious eaten out of hand and so versatile they can be added to many things, from cereal or smoothies in the morning, sliced on sandwiches or salad at lunch and any dessert. Strawberries are also delicious as an ingredient to savory dishes. Give this recipe a try during this coming 4th of July weekend. BBQ’s are popular, use this as a topping to any grilled meat or as a dip for tortilla chips. It would be great over scrambled eggs or in place of a dressing on a bed of greens. How will you use it?
