Red, White, & Blue Salsa

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 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 TODAY!

  1. Ohhh, I love it! Colorful and tasty! Perfect combination!! Love all your red, white and blue recipes!!!

  2. Gorgeous! I love it!!! Going to make this to take to our family’s big 4th of July fireworks extravaganza. 🙂

  3. My son is literally standing here beside me asking me to make this 🙂 xoxo- K

  4. Love, love, LOVE this! I am obsessed with jicama. And it is so pretty and perfect for Independence Day!

  5. Oh I just LOVE this! This is the perfect salsa for any July 4th cookout, I could eat this whole bowl in on sitting! 🙂

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

    1. 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.

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

  8. 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!! 🙂

  9. i have never bought jicama, but i have a friend who loooooooooves it! this is a great recipe to try and share with my jicama loving girlfriend. 🙂

  10. This is gorgeous! I love a good fruity salsa, and the addition of crunchy jicama makes it perfect in my book 🙂

  11. So festive, Maria! I would’ve never thought to add jicama to salsa. Perfect summer bbq treat.

  12. Looks super delicious and SO colorful! I’d definitely be impressed with this at a 4th party!

  13. I can’t wait to see how many red, white and blue ingenious recipes you’ll be posting. And I sure do love that watermark 🙂 YOU GOT IT GIRL!

  14. This is so unique! I never would have put these ingredients together but it looks great and I love the suggestion of the cinnamon pita chips.

  15. This is almost to pretty to eat, but I would totally eat it! It will look great on party table.

  16. Loving all these fruit salsa recipes! Something I would never think of, but delicious nonetheless!

  17. I love jicama! It’s the perfect “white” addition to this red white and blue-colored salad! 😀

  18. I’m not gunna lie- this is SOOO my kind of recipe and your pictures look so fun- makes me wanna jump in that bowl and take a scoop to put on my Greek yogurt. Lovely post Maria, as always.
    Have a great weekend and give the lil’ pea a hug from me.

  19. Just made this for a BBQ today and it is delicious! Will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting awesome recipes.

  20. 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?

  21. Maria, I love this salsa! How much fun is this and pefect for the fourth. And jicama is one of my favorite summer snacking veggies. Lovely post!

  22. 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! 🙂

  23. 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!

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

  25. 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!!

  26. This looks (and must taste) simply amazing! What a super idea for the 4th! Will definitely be making this one.

  27. 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!

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

  29. 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?

  30. “Blueberry Strawberry & Jicama Salsa | Blueberry Salsa Recipe | Two Peas & Their Pod” definitely causes myself think a little bit more.
    I admired each and every particular piece of it.

    Thanks for the post ,Lauren

  31. Could this be made ahead and frozen? I am the only one in our house that would eat it so I know I couldn’t finish in a day. If not frozen any other suggestions?

  32. This salsa looks just beautiful! So happy I found it..on Pinterest! I hope you don’t mind that I shared it on my blog (set for Saturday) and I posted a link back to your blog for the recipe.
    Thanks for sharing~~~

  33. This looks absolutely delicious! I love anything with jicama in it and think the colors are gorgeous. Definitely making it this year, even if our 4th of July gets rained out.

  34. This looks great! One problem, though. What could you substitute for the cilantro? It tastes like soap to me and my family!

  35. Made this today for our neighborhood potluck -7/4/2103- was all gone so I’d say a huge hit. Yummy and refreshing!! Will definitely make it again!

  36. Made this side dish for the 4th. My family loved it, except the husband, who eats his chips plain unless of course there is something cheesey within dipping distance.

  37. This is my introductory recipe with I tried with jicama. I made it, and I have to say, you can easily overdo the cilantro so it overpowers the salsa. The jalapeno amount is barely noticeable. Also, in mine, the jicama changed color when mixed with the strawberries, so if you want the jicama to remain white, add and mix gingerly towards the end of the blending. Can’t wait to try another recipe in the future from you guys!

  38. I just had some fish tacos out the other night that had a jicama salsa– and I can’t get it out of my mind! This is a great option.

  39. This is the 3rd year in a row that I’ve made this for 4th of July! Each year, it’s a hit! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

    We made this with our after school students several years ago. I like it so much that it has became a yearly thing I make for the Wayne Henderson festival in Grayson Highlands State Park. People sitting near have inquired about it because when you take the lid off it smells so good. Every year some stranger ask me for the rescipe.

    Tasted fine, loved the texture the jimica added to the mix. However, the photo is deceiving. Once the ingredients are mixed, the strawberries will stain the jimica red, the white is lost, and the 4th of July red-blue-white turns into a far less interesting red-blue mix.

  42. 4 stars
    We’ve done away with cereal at house and often we serve Greek yogurt with mixed berries and almonds for breakfast. I tried your salad on top of yogurt for breakfast and it was a hit. Great combination of textures and colors. A+

  43. 4 stars

  44. This has two of my toddlers’ three favorite fruits, so we’ll definitely be making these. Thanks for the recipe.

  45. 5 stars
    Finally got to make this blueberry strawberry and jicama salsa yesterday and my wife liked them. Thanks for sharing.

  46. I’m loving this red white and blue salsa! I imagine the crunchy jicama gives it a fantastic texture.

  47. Awesome salsa! I’ve been making this for 2 or 3 years now on July 4th and my family absolutely loves it. I’m making it again today and will be sampling it as it’s made.
    Thanks so much!
