The festive Blueberry, Strawberry and Jicama Salsa is the perfect addition to your 4th of July BBQ!
Not only is it pretty, but it is full of flavor and quick to make. Your taste buds will love the combination of sweet berries and crunchy jicama. This fruity salsa has a high vitamin C content, therefore it has very powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities. There is a little bit of heat from the jalapeño, but if you like a mild salsa, feel free to leave it out or use half the amount. Serve with store bought blue corn tortilla chips or you can make your own baked tortilla chips.
You can also top grilled chicken or fish with this red, white, and blue salsa. It is a great summer salsa for just about everything!
This recipe yields a little over 3 cups, so simply double or triple all the ingredients to make more if you’re going to be attending a big BBQ!
