Fresh Fruit Salsa


Sometimes, a little fruit salsa is exactly what a dish needs to make it complete.  I like to serve a fruit salsa with grilled fish, especially swordfish and tuna.  This is one of those recipes where the basics are constant and the star ingredient (the fruit) can change.

Fruit Salsa

1/2 Medium Onion, minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground chili powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 jalapeno (optional)
Fruit of your choice, chopped (peaches, pineapple, mango work well)
Juice of one lime

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and let the mixture of goodness sit in the fridge for at least a half hour.  Serve with your favorite grilled fish or with tortilla chips.

  1. I have a salsa that is almost just like this that I’m obsessed with, but mine also has some black beans and cubed avocado. Fruit salsa is such an under-appreciated slice of heaven.
