Quick, easy, and refreshing, this Strawberry Tomato Salsa is a perfect warm weather appetizer! Punched up with lime, red onion, avocado, jalapeno, and cilantro, it’s delicious on its own with chips or as a topping for grilled chicken or fish.
One of the things I actually do love about living in Florida is the convenience of finding the freshest produce possible.
Strawberry season here is a huge revenue source for our state, but we get first dibs. Plant City absolutely KILLS it with their plump, juicy berries every winter.
I can’t resist picking up a package every time I go grocery shopping (every. time.), in spite of the fact that Abe isn’t the biggest fan of them on their own.
When I whip up a bowl of this salsa, a pitcher of pink berry lemonade, or a salad full of them, however – he can’t help himself.

Is anyone else out there content to nosh on a batch of chips and salsa as a meal?
I’m talking like lunch or maybe a midday snack – obvs not dinner. Unless you’re into that.
This salsa has made appearances in our house pretty frequently this winter, on account of my penchant for buying too many pounds of berries. It’s a super quick and easy recipe to throw together.
The chopping and dicing even becomes fun when it’s done to the beat of some good jams.
It’s also a menial task when you’re being distracted by laughing at your thirteenth run-through of The Office. Just don’t chop off any fingers.
Can Strawberry Salsa Be Made Ahead?
Yes, this salsa can be made up to one day ahead.
Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days after being made, as well.
What To Serve With Strawberry Salsa
This salsa pairs perfectly with Cinnamon Pita Chips! The tartness & heat of the salsa mixed with the sweetness of the berries and cinnamon-sugar is SO delish! If you’re partial to more savory flavors, lime-flavored tortilla chips are another option.
If you’d like to serve this salsa with a main course, try one of these options:
- Grilled Salmon
- Grilled Chicken
- Chicken or Fish Tacos
- Grilled Shrimp
How To Make Strawberry Salsa
First, chop strawberries, tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. Dice red onion and jalapeno. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
- Next, zest a lime, adding it to the bowl. Squeeze the lime juice over the contents of the bowl, and sprinkle liberally with salt.
- Then, toss everything together. Adjust salt and lime if needed, and add jalapeno seeds if you’d like a little extra heat.
Finally, cover the bowl and refrigerate the salsa for at least 30 minutes before serving.
