Blueberry Salsa

Blueberry Salsa

I saw this salsa recipe over at recipegirl.com.  Isn't it beautiful?  And so perfect for the 4th of July or any get together. 

First, let me get this off my chest, I'm not a big fan of blueberries.  They are a pretty little fruit but not my first choice.  I made this salsa because it's so darn pretty.  And I was just a little surprised at how wonderful it tastes!  The cilantro is a perfect addition.

I stuck with the original recipe with the small exception of using half of a banana pepper with one jalapeno pepper.  I had one that was ready for picking in my garden.  This is a great change from regular tomato based salsa. I served it with lime flavored tortilla chips which I must say were the perfect accompaniment.


Let's get started:

2 cups fresh blueberries, chopped
1 cup whole fresh blueberries
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 medium seeded & minced jalapeno peppers
1/2 of a medium seeded & minced banana pepper
1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
tortilla chips for dipping
1.  In a large bowl, carefully combine all ingredients.
2.  Cover and chill until ready to serve.  Serve with tortilla chips.
Yield:  About 3 cups
