Two Peas and Their Pod

Blueberry, Strawberry & Jicama Salsa

As promised, we have another red, white, and blue recipe for you today! We’ve already shared patriotic recipes for breakfast and dessert, so now it’s time to get snacking with Blueberry, Strawberry, and Jicama Salsa. This red, white, and blue salsa is the perfect appetizer or snack for your 4th of July party.

I am in love with this salsa. Not only is it pretty, but it is full of flavor and so easy to make. I love the combination of sweet berries and crunchy jicama. There is a little bit of heat from the jalapeño, but if you like a mild salsa, feel free to leave it out. Serve with store bought tortilla chips or you can make your own baked tortilla chips. I’ve also enjoyed it with cinnamon sugar pita chips-so good and so addicting!

Josh likes to top grilled chicken or fish with this red, white, and blue salsa. It is a great salsa for just about everything!

Add this festive Blueberry, Strawberry & Jicama Salsa to your 4th of July menu! And if you can’t wait until the 4th, no worries. It is a great snack for any summer day. I think I will make a bowl of salsa this weekend!

Today is the last day to enter our giveaway for The Pioneer Woman’s Cooking Essentials Kit. Good luck!

    I want to go berry bobbing in that!

  16. Melissa Kalson — June 22, 2012 @ 10:45 am

    This looks so good. Can someone tell me though what jicama is and where would you find it at? Thanks.

      Jicama is a root vegetable. It is round with a brown exterior and white interior. Peel off the brown part and dice up the inside. It provides a nice crunch to the salsa. You can find it in the produce section.

  17. I need to get my hands on some jicama. It sounds delicious with the berries for this salsa.

    Cannot wait to make this for our annual 4th BBQ at the beach! Also, I have to say, I have made tons of your cookie recipes over the last two years…all have been a super hit (though my husband did question my sanity when the dough for the cheesecake stuffed red velvet cookies was cooling in the fridge – he asked why I had a liver in a plastic bag…LOL…that aside, those, the vanilla pudding choc. chip (sometimes I substitute choc. pudding) and the s’mores cookies are the most requested ones by family, friends and co-workers (I am the resident baker in the office). Keep the delicious recipes coming!! :)

  40. Leslie Watkins — June 23, 2012 @ 11:28 pm

    Looks awesome but unfortunately I was born w/the defective cilantro tastes like soap to me gene. I normally pass on any recipe that has it but I’m thinking this could get by w/out – or a substitute?
