Fruit salsa has been a big hit lately... I've made it for family get-togethers and took some to work. Very refreshing summer treat, and reasonably healthy. Basically, I use whatever fruit looks really good, then add some garlic, cilantro, hot pepper, salt, and lime juice. This recipe makes about 2 quarts:
2 lb strawberries
1 cup minced fresh onion (optional)
4 fresh garlic cloves, finely minced
1 "bunch" cilantro, which equals about 1 to 1.5 cups chopped
I've also occasionally added some fresh mint, which adds an additional freshness and spark... but it is sort of optional, where the cilantro is a MUST in my opinion
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp salt
3-4 finely chopped Jalepeno peppers... more or less to taste
If you like it really HOT... throw in a couple of serrano or habeneros.
Serve with chips... or over pound cake, depending on your mood.
