This strawberry salsa recipe is delicious, colorful and easy to make! It’s the perfect spring or summer party appetizer. Recipe yields enough salsa for about 4 to 6 snacking portions, although I managed to polish it all off myself in under 24 hours.

Why buy organic? Strawberries are at the top of the dirty dozen list and jalapeños are also of concern. Citrus zest can be contaminated with pesticides so I always try to use organic citrus when zest is involved.
Make it vegan: Use maple syrup instead of honey.
Andrea’s tip: “When chopping fresh herbs like cilantro, dill and parsley, there’s no need to separate the leaves from the tender stems—chop everything! The stems offer a lot of flavor and texture. If the herb has a woody stem, like rosemary or thyme, gently remove the leaves before chopping.”
