“Doubtless God Could Have Made a Better Berry, but Doubtless God Never Did.” – William Butler

Hi there!

I am sorry it has taken me so long to write my next entry, I’ve been busy with errands and job searching!

On the other hand, I recently got engaged =)  !!!!!  I have been dating my fiancee for almost 4 years now, he asked me on June 1st and I couldn’t be happier!  But now I have to get down to business and find a reception venue and hopefully have an autumn wedding; can’t wait!!!!

Now for the food…

I have a love/hate relationship with summer.  I love summer because of all the fresh fruit I can pick (cherries are my absolute favorite and I soon will have a recipe up) but I hate summer because it can get so hot, humid, muggy, you name it.  I have a really hard time with it but I am young so I try to suck it up because I just love fresh picked fruit… seriously.  The strawberry crop was not as good as last year because of the warm winter, but the fresh picked strawberries taste so much better than the ones in the store!

I wanted to make a savory dish with strawberries, and I remembered watching (I think) Simply Delicioso and she made a cold salsa with strawberries, avocado and red onion.  I thought it was interesting and wanted to add my own little kick – jalapeno!  I know what you’re thinking, strawberries and jalapeno pepper?  TRUST ME!  It totally works!  Plus, you should teach your pallet to love spicy foods; they naturally speed up your metabolism!  This salsa goes really well with baked balsamic vinegar (the older, the better) marinated wild Alaskan sockeye salmon.

Strawberry/Avocado Salsa


1 pint locally grown strawberries, diced

1/2 avocado, diced

1/4 red onion, diced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & diced

1 lime, zest & juice

1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped

1/2 tsp. the oldest balsamic vinegar you have (18+ yrs.)

1/2 tsp. EVOO

salt & pepper to taste


 1. Dice all ingredients, toss in a bowl, mix & enjoy!

Seriously, it’s that easy!  Eat on top of a green salad or with lentil chips.  If you are making the salsa to serve with the balsamic salmon, omit the balsamic vinegar in the salsa.

Let me know what you think!!

Short post, but there are going to be many more recipes coming up soon!  I promise!!
