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!!

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.
