Recipe: Blueberry Salsa from Southern Living

I found this in this month’s Southern Living magazine and just couldn’t resist trying it. I was pleasantly surprised how great it was! And so pretty! You might consider adding a Tablespoon of diced white onion to make it truly red, white, and blue! 🙂
What a colorful salsa for 4th of July!!

  • 1/4  cup  fresh lemon juice
  • 3  tablespoons  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2  jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced (I used 2 Tbsp. of the diced jalapenos from a jar!)
  • 1/3  cup  diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon  kosher salt (I also added about a tsp. of sugar to sweeten it up a bit)


Toss together coarsely chopped fresh blueberries, whole fresh blueberries, fresh lemon juice, chopped fresh cilantro, seeded and minced jalapeño peppers, diced red bell pepper, and kosher salt in a large bowl. Serve immediately, or cover and chill 8 hours.

  2. That looks really awesome! Cilantro and blueberries sound like a great combination. I am going to make this soon and take your suggestion about the addition of onion.
