Fresh Strawberry Salsa Served on top of Simply Baked Salmon and Sauteed Spinach

With the weather finally turning warming and the farmer’s market opening right around the corner, I can’t wait for the casual dinners that the coming months will bring.

One of my favorite summer snacks is fresh salsa. Although I love tomato salsas, fruit salsas are a nice sweet and tangy alternative.

One of my all time favorite salsas is Fresh Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa. I first time made this salsa years ago when a class mother shared her recipe with me. I remember making a batch of this mango salsa and gobbling up the entire bowl with tortilla chips over a casual lunch with a friend. This fresh salsa has been a favorite ever since. Not only is this Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa perfect as an appetizer or snack, but it goes wonderfully with grilled chicken or fish.

This past week I spotted another fruit salsa recipe, one for Strawberry Salsa on a recipe card from Whole Foods featuring recipes with strawberries. Strawberries have been popping up everywhere, and I’ve been thinking of ways to use all these beautiful red berries. Like the Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa, this Strawberry Salsa would be wonderful as a snack or appetizer, or served on top of a piece of baked or grilled salmon.

Here are the recipes for Fresh Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa and Fresh Strawberry Salsa.

  9. Jeanette, your photography in this post is stunning. Salmon is an all star in my weekly meals. Really my most favorite entree. Gorgeous salsa parings too!

  10. Jeanette says:

    Thank you Maria! You can't go wrong with fresh fruits and vegetables, they are naturally gorgeous and colorful. Salmon is heart healthy, a good source of omega-3's and vitamin D, and a terrific protein option.

  11. Honeybee Housewife says:

    This salmon looks absolutely delicious. I love all the healthy recipes — you're so right about eating healthy to fight cancer. My mom went through a diet lifestyle change after battling breast cancer and now she is healthier/more active than ever. Will definitely be trying out some of your recipes with her!

  13. Kim-Cook It Allergy Free says:

    These both look amazing! I love salsas with fruit in them. I make them all of the time. And the photos are just stunning. The colors just pop! What camera/lens are you using?

  14. Jeanette says:

    Thanks Kim! Fruit salsas are naturally gorgeous, with so many bright colors to play with. I have a Canon T2i and a Tamron 18-270 lens, which I'm still learning how to use.

  15. Kim-Cook It Allergy Free says:

    Thanks! I use the Canon T1i and I usually use a 50 mm 1.4 lens most of the time. I have a number of other lenses that were my Dads (he was an avid photographer). I just wish he were around to show me how to use them all. :( I have been learning by trial and error and self teaching. Not always a good thing. LOL

  16. Jeanette says:

    I would like to get a 50mm lens but haven't gotten around to it yet. I got the Tamron because I wanted a lens that could shoot both food and get closeups of my kids for family photos.

  17. Jeanette, thanks for the wonderful salsa recipes. I have been reading your blog for quite some time, and have decided to leave a comment. I love how your recipes are wholesome, and suitable for people with food intolerances. This salsa is totally gorgeous. I have been looking for new ways to jazz up my grilled fish, and would love to try this!
