This post is the last in our fruit-themed recipe series for the month of August from Kelsi Windmiller.
This week I would like to share a sweet and spicy salsa recipe. I am sure many of you have tried mango salsa, and this recipe is very similar — it uses fresh raspberries to add sweetness. You can find plenty of ripe, sweet smelling raspberries in your local markets right now. No need to chop them up for this dish — just break them apart with a spoon and add a little agave nectar to highlight their flavor. Serve this salsa as a dip for chips or garnishing your favorite home made tacos!
1c Fresh Raspberries
1c Diced Plum Tomatoes
1/8c Diced Red Onion
1/8c Chopped Cilantro
1 Small Red Hot Pepper
1/2 Lime Juiced
1tbsp Agave Nectar
Salt to Taste
Start by breaking apart your raspberries in a small bowl with the agave nectar until bright red and sweet smelling. Remove the seeds from your hot pepper and discard. Dice the pepper into fine pieces (if your skin is sensitive use gloves or coat the hand touching the pepper with a little olive oil). Toss the pepper with the tomatoes, onion, and cilantro. Stir in the raspberries along with the lime juice and salt until evenly coated. Enjoy!
