Recently, I have been absolutely loving homemade fruit salsas. I love the sweetness of the fruit paired with the spice of jalapeno. In my mind, the flavor combination is perfect!
Strawberry season is in FULL swing here in Indiana, and it has me reminiscing on memories of strawberry picking with my family as a kid. Thinking I need to find a Strawberry patch near me to go picking soon!
Strawberry Salsa Tips
Strawberry Salsa comes together extremely simply. I typically like to prepare the ingredients then toss them all together about 30 minutes prior to serving or using it as a topping so the ingredients have a little time to meld.
Leftovers for this Strawberry Salsa are OK, but I prefer this dish FRESH!
This dish is naturally gluten free, dairy free and free of the 8 top allergens. It is also low FODMAP, making this a wonderful dish to share with a crowd.
How to Serve Strawberry Salsa
I love serving Strawberry Salsa the following ways:
with tortilla chips
as a topping on a build your own taco or taco bowl bar
on top of salads
on top of chicken or salmon
If you make this recipe I would love to know how YOU like to serve it 🙂
Curious about the ingredients in my Strawberry Salsa?
Strawberries: good source of Vitamin C, manganese, folate (Vitamin B9), potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. They may help regulate blood sugar, decrease risk for heart disease and cancer.
Bell Peppers: also high in Vitamin C as well as water, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K1, potassium, folate (Vitamin B9), Vitamin E, Vitamin, A, and antioxidants. Fun fact – consuming vitamin C-rich foods like strawberries and bell peppers helps your body absorb iron when consumed at the same time.
Jalapeno: contain a good amount of fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and capsaicin. Capsaicin may increase metabolism, act as a natural appetite suppressant, and may have natural cancer-fighting properties. It’s what gives the jalapeno it’s spicy flavor.
Olive Oil: source of monounsaturated fatty acids (heart-healthy fats) and antioxidants.
Tomato: great source of fiber, Vitamin C, folate (Vitamin B9), potassium, Vitamin K1, and lycopene. Lycopene is the plant compound that makes the tomatoes red and is an antioxidant.

Strawberry and lime are a match made in heaven (plus chili with anything!) I can’t wait for our summer fruits to start coming back into season so I can make things like this 🙂
Yes for summer fruits! But where do you live?! Obviously not somewhere in the states 😉
I love salsas that mix sweet and spicy flavors! I could pretty much eat this all day long!
You and me both, Amanda 🙂
O spicy! I love it! All the red veggies too! Salsa lovin’!
Thanks, Rebecca!!! 🙂
Wow this looks amazing! We are going to a party this weekend and this might be exactly the perfect thing to bring!! Pinning!
Yes! This sounds like it would be a great dish to share!
This sounds incredible. I love the typical, spicy, salsa, but I’ve recently gotten into mango salsa. This recipe sounds awesome – I need to try it out ASAP while Strawberries are still in season! 🙂
Thanks, Jamie! Let me know what you think!! 🙂
Mmm this sounds so great! I’ll definitely have to try it out. Thanks for the recipe!
Thanks, Gretchen! Brian and I really love it!
Now I am so intrigued! I don’t think I’ve ever had a strawberry-pepper-jalapeno salsa ever before! I am really loving the blend of spicy and sweet in this – definitely gonna have to try this – thanks so much for the inspiration!
You will love it, Shashi!! 🙂
Heck yes I am a SALSA fan :)! I have to admit, I usually don’t mix my F and V- however, I think you sold me at jalapeno on this one! I can’t wait to try it. My fav salsa I would have to say is a thick pico with lots of cilantro and a generous helping of jalapeno and serano peppers 🙂 Yum!
It doesn’t taste overly “Fruity” so it really is great on fish tacos or with plantain chips or something like that 🙂 Your salsa sounds delish too!!
I just made tomato salsa, now it’s time to try your strawberry salsa!
Homemade salsa is one of my favorite ways to use up summer veggies!
I have had peach salsa but never strawberry! I have jalapenos from my CSA so will give this a try. I think my kids will love it!
So perfect!! I think your kids will love it too…not too spicy!! And you can adjust the heat by adding less/more jalapeno.
