Strawberry Salsa

Strawberry Salsa

I bought a mint plant a couple of weekends ago with the sole intention of using the mint to make mojitos. But, I guess it’s true what they say about mint being a weed, and I’m sorry to say that my mojito consumption cannot keep up with my mint plant’s production.

So, I combined some of my non-mojito mint with fresh, plump, summer strawberries, jalapeño, red onion, and lime juice to make strawberry salsa.

Then I started eating strawberry salsa with everything, and it is good on everything: On regular tortilla chips, salads, all of our summertime grilled meats, even ice cream – if you’re really feeling wild.

My mojito consumption is now being tempered by my strawberry salsa consumption, that’s how good it is.

Maybe I’ll just get a separate mint plant for my mojitos.
