It's strawberry time! This is one of the very best salsas ever....the flavors just burst forth in your mouth not only from the ripe berries but from all the other fresh ingredients. Use it to accompany toasted pita triangles, grilled fish, shrimp or chicken.
1/2 of a medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, sliced and minced
1/2 each of a red, yellow and green bell pepper-juilienned
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, shredded
1/2 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours. Before serving, remove from refrigerator 15 minutes so it loses some of its chill.

COOKS NOTE: You may also substitute blackberries or blueberries.
