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’ve been seeing a bunch of blueberry and strawberry salsas, but none with jicama. I’ve wanted to try jicama for a while now, and now I know how! :)

  10. Who needs a chip? I could eat this as is. What a great way to show your patriotism and boost your fiber intake all at the same time! I love it!

    I posted blueberry salsa last week too! I love the addition of strawberries in yours!

    I am making this tonight! Seriously… last week my boyfriend came home with a container of jicama and said “this would probably be cool in something… I don’t what, but I’m sure you can think of a good jicama recipe.”, I discreetly tossed the container in the dark corner of the fridge and left it at that. But now I can use it – thanks, Maria!!

    Made this for my son’s red wagon themed first birthday party this past weekend and it was a big hit. Served it with corn chips & (per your suggestion) cinnamon & sugar pita chips. The pita chips were the run away favorite! Thank you for this recipe & so many others!

    Yum! So fresh and perfect for the holiday! What a great idea and mixture of ingredients!

    Love this idea! This really is a beautiful summer salsa recipe; I love all of the colors, and it really is perfect for the 4th.

    Since I’m not the biggest cilantro fan, and I didn’t have some of the other ingredients on hand, I ended up making a fruit salad loosely based on this- I think it turned out pretty well (! However, I’d still love to try out your full version. Are there any other herbs that might work in place of the cilantro, or is that just the silliest question ever?
