Sweet Summer Strawberry Suprises

Ahhhhh Summer Is Here!!  Do you love fresh fruit and light summer snacks and meals?   Who doesn't love a strawberry?  They are ripe and ready now, so here are some favorite meal ideas sure to be a huge hit for the family and summer playdates!

Of course our goal is a meal all prepped and made during a naptime that also appeals to the whole family and today we have a recipe that doubles as a great snack & dinner.

Strawberry-Avocado Salsa(courtesy of cooking light May2009)
1Cup finely chopped strawberries
1/4Cup peeled/chopped avocado
2Tbspn cilantro (fresh preferred)
2Tbspn finely chopped red onion
1/2tspn grated lime grind
2Tbspn fresh lime juice
2tspn finely chopped/seeded jalapeno pepper (optnl)
1/4tspn sugar

*combine all together and toss gently*

Snack option ~ we serve and eat with cinnamon pita chips, although I'm sure a baked tortilla chip will work too.

Dinner option ~ I've roasted a chicken with some of the salsa in cavity or under skin and also serve on the chicken when plating.  This salsa is also great  when grilling in the summer with pork  or chicken as a topper for the cutlets.

Enjoy and let us know how you like it and what you made it with or how you used it!
