Summer Berry Salsa

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + chilling


4 cups

Other fruits are often used in relishes and sauces, but I decided to make one with my favorites - strawberries and blueberries. I get rave reviews when I serve this fruity, distinctive salsa over meat. It's also delicious atop a spinach or lettuce salad. -Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
