O Spicy Fruit Salsa


Description

This spicy fruit salsa is made to top grilled salmon, but it has lots of other possibilities too — not only for grilled chicken or steak, but for tacos, and of course corn chips.  The only dressing this needs is a splash of O Orange Blossom Champagne Vinegar. The trio of the sweet fruit, the spicy jalapeños, and the delicate tang of the vinegar just sings.


Ingredients

1/4 cup each:

• Strawberries, finely chopped
• Blueberries, halved
• Blackberries, halved or quartered
• Raspberries, halved
• Papaya, finely chopped
• Pineapple, finely chopped
• Pink and white grapefruit sections, chopped
• Kiwi, finely chopped
• Small red grapes, halved
• Pomegranate seeds
• Red onion, finely diced
• Jalapeño, finely minced, seeds and all (for less heat leave out the seeds and/or use less jalapeño)

• 2 tbsp + O Orange Blossom Vinegar


Instructions

  1. Prepare everything as listed, then put everything into a bowl and add the O Orange Blossom Vinegar.
  2. Lightly dress the salsa without drowning it. Start with 2 tablespoons and add more if needed/to taste.
  3. Toss gently and serve asap.


Notes

  • Resist the temptation to add any accumulated juice from the fruit to the bowl, that dilutes the flavor of the vinegar and makes the salsa watery.
  • Chopping the fruit finely without bruising it is key — use the Vidalia Chop Wizard to do it neatly and quickly.
  • If you use anything that browns once it’s been cut (i.e. apples) be sure to hit it with some lemon juice.
  • Very important: cut fruit just does not keep well. We suggest making this salsa no more than an hour or so before you use it for the best, freshest results.
