Today's Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa is perfect for taco night! It's great with tortilla chips or on top of grilled fish or chicken tacos. 

This salsa has the perfect mix of spicy, sweet and savory flavors. It's so fresh, delicious and is ready in about 10 minutes.

We've also added fresh peaches to this salsa in the past and it was also tasty. It has bright flavors and is so perfect for any summer meal. Sometimes I'll make this, grab some tortilla chips and my lunch is ready.
