"Summertime Strawberry Salsa"

The ladies from our community group got together last night for dinner and dessert. Our main course was balsamic grilled chicken and I prepared a strawberry salsa to go along with it. I had made grilled chicken with this strawberry salsa a week or so ago for dinner one night, so I knew it would pair wonderfully for our ladies dinner too. Its also great on pita chips, as we discovered last night! I think it would be excellent with fish as well- tilapia, salmon, etc. Anyways, I had a lot of requests for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here too. Easy, refreshing, and perfect for spring or summertime!
·         1 package (16oz) fresh strawberries, chopped
·         1 fresh jalapeno, finely chopped (remove ribs and seeds)
·         1 small cucumber (or ½ large cucumber), peeled and chopped (cut it in such a way to exclude all seeds)
·         ½ small sweet onion, chopped
·         About 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped (just eyeball it- you can always add more later to taste)
·         Drizzle honey (again, just eyeball it and add more later if needed)
·         Sprinkle of salt and pepper, to taste

1.      Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and stir thoroughly
2.      Let rest in refrigerator at least 30 minutes for the flavors to marry
3.      Adjust seasonings if needed and serve

21-Day Fix Portions (for each 1/2 cup of salsa): 1/4 purple, 1/4 green
