Cinco de Mayo Dos Berry Salsa

Cinco de Mayo Dos Berry Salsa

 Cinco de Mayo is less than a week away and no

celebration is complete without some chips & salsa!

Dos Berry Salsa is a delicious variation that is full of

flavor, colorful, and quick & easy to assemble!


Similar to Blueberry Salsa, I tweaked a recipe for a Triple Berry Salsa, using dos instead of tres berries. . . :) This  recipe is easily adapted, changing the quantity for your crowd, using berries of your choice or fruit in season!


  Dos Berry Salsa,

adapted from Taste of Home


3 cups fresh berries (I used blueberries, some chopped, some whole & chopped strawberries)

1 small sweet yellow pepper, chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

Juice of ½ lime

Juice of ½ orange

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 teaspoon salt



In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients. Drizzle over salsa; toss to coat. Chill well*, stir before serving with chips.

*I prefer it after only a brief chilling time, 1 – 2 hours, so the flavors are still somewhat distinct, but chill it longer if you want the flavors to marry.


 This is a refreshing salsa to enjoy

during the summer months too!

End your celebration on a sweet note with

Margarita Ice Cream Sandwiches

Or sandwich them together with a combination of

lime sherbet and vanilla ice cream to cool the heat

from your fiery peppers or jalapeños.

Corn & Bacon Guacam-Ole!

Put the Olé in Corn and Bacon Guacamole!

Roasted or grilled corn adds just the right amount

 of sweetness and smokiness to guacamole.
