Sweet and Savory Chunky Cherry Salsa
In case you have never tried it before, cherry salsa is really something special. When cherries are ripe and in season, it is a great time to prepare this tangy, spicy, and delicious dip with some of the abundant supply of cherries.
Though they may not replace tomato salsa anytime soon, this chunky cherry salsa is a great late summer/early fall salsa, which pairs perfectly with a variety of meat and vegetable dishes as well as on its own as a dip.
Depending on whether fresh cherries are still available in your area when Thanksgiving rolls around, you may even want to try serving this delectable chunky cherry salsa recipe alongside the traditional cranberry sauce, since it is also fantastic with turkey.
With fruit salsas, the fruit is almost always your key ingredient, which is why such recipes do not require too many additional ingredients. As well as the cherries in this salsa, the recipe calls for green onions, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime, ingredients found in many salsa recipes, both tomato ones and fruity ones. Feel free to alter the amount of jalapeño used in this recipe.
You might prefer the salsa to be milder or more spicy. Making your own salsas mean you can choose exactly how you want them to come out. Combine the ingredients and then let the mixture sit. Doing this will intensify the flavors and allow them to blend smoothly. If you have tried homemade tomato salsa recipes before and perhaps some fruit ones, it is worth adding this cherry salsa to your repertoire, to make a change.
- 4 cups cherries (sour or sweet), pitted and coarsely chopped
- 6 green onions, chopped
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (adjust according to taste)
- Juice of 1 lime
- A pinch of salt
- Once you have finished pitting the cherries, which can be something of a chore, then the rest is incredibly easy.
- Chop the cherries, cilantro, green onions (red onion may be substituted if green onions are unavailable), and jalapeno and combine in a bowl.
- Add the lime juice and salt and stir well.
- Refrigerate this salsa for a couple of hours before you serve it; while this cherry salsa will be excellent even immediately after you’ve finished preparing it, it will be all the better once the flavors have had a chance to blend for a while.
- Enjoy with chips – or with anything else!
Cherry salsa blends the sweet with the spicy, to bring you a salsa which is full of flavors, contrasts and an authentic south of the border flavor. Although cherries are not the most common ingredient in salsa, they work perfectly in this recipe. The photo shows a little girl enchanted by a basket of appealing cherries. Cherry pie and cherry cake are amazing but consider using your cherries to make something savory instead, and you will be able to revel in their versatility. This is a very simple recipe to make and the flavors will speak for themselves in the finished salsa.
