Blueberry Salsa

Standard

I agree…it seems strange but I thought, “Why not try it? I’ve got lots of blueberries!”  My family was not supportive of the idea so I waited until I was hosting a meeting at my house tonight to make it and have out for our snacks.

I don’t have much left and the plates were all clean when I rinsed them so it must have been liked by many!  One 9-year-old even made a point to come up and let me know that she really liked it and my handsome-fella admitted that it was indeed good.

It is easy and quick to throw together.

Blueberry Salsa

original recipe from Southern Living July 2010

Combine together in a 1.5 qt bowl:

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped, fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup whole fresh blueberries
  • 4 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 or 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced (I only used one as I knew it was a “tame” crowd coming)
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper (I then cut probably about 1 Tablespoon more to add as I didn’t think the balance was right with all the colors)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Serve immediately, or cover and chill 8 hours.  Serve with tortilla chips.

 

Enjoy!

  1. It does sound strange but I’m sure it was good. I didn’t know you had blueberries growing at your house. Don’t o think I could grow them even though our yard even in this heat looks pretty good
