Perfect for Strawberry Season…

You won’t heat up the kitchen preparing this recipe!

    1. Hi Lisa,
      No. Unfortunately, this recipe is not approved for canning. I believe that cooking it to can the salsa would ruin the flavor anyway. Thanks for checking… good question!

  1. Looks yummy! These are all healthy ingredients. I should also make it for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for sharing :))

  2. Well…I like strawberries and I love salsa. I’m a tiny bit dubious about the combination…maybe I’m just stuck in my ways! But it is beautiful!

    1. Hi Laurie!
      Lol… if I hadn’t tried mango salsa I probably never would have tried making strawberry salsa! I like the flavor best after it marinates for a couple of hours. 🙂

    1. Hi Suzan,
      Thank you! We enjoyed the salsa and it disappeared quickly! I hope you like it. 🙂
      Have a great week!
