Cherry salsa

Cherry Salsa

I found some tart and sweet cherries at the farmers market the other day and thought I’d try turning them into a fruit salsa.  I’ll tell you straight out that this was a bit more labor intensive than I like, and even though it tasted good, I won’t make it on a regular basis because of the time it took.  But for a party?  Definitely a fun twist on traditional salsa.  Serve with tortilla chips or toasted pita bread, and you’ll be getting a healthy kick of fruit while you snack.

(One more thing, using a pastry tip as a cherry pitter worked perfectly!)

Recipe:  Cherry Salsa

(from Food Network)

2 c. cherries, stemmed, pitted, and chopped

4 green onions, chopped

1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1/2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1 small clove garlic, finely chopped

Stir all ingredients together until well combined.  Serve.

    This looks so pretty, but yes, labor-intensive. I would certainly like someone to make this for me!

    fruit salsas are an absolute favorite–great use for your cherries! cilantro and jalapenos are key to any and all salsas, as far as i’m concerned. :)
