Blueberry Salsa

I found this fabulous recipe for Blueberry Salsa in Southern Living Magazine and gave it a try for book club tonight.  It's so pretty, how could I resist?  You can also never go wrong with their recipes.  They are fool proof!

It's fairly easy to make, even better if you have a killer Cuisinart like Dan gave me this last Christmas.  Otherwise, get to choppin'.

  • 2 cups chopped fresh blueberries (I pulsed it several times in the food processor)
  • 1 cup whole fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3  tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 seeded and minced jalapeño peppers
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt
Aren't these gorgeous? 
Coarsely chop fresh blueberries. Stir together chopped fresh blueberries & whole blueberries.
 Looking not so pretty yet.
Add fresh lemon juice, chopped fresh cilantro, jalapeño peppers, red bell pepper, onion, and salt in a large bowl. 
 Ohhh...looking better!
Gently stir together. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
 I know you're thinking I missed my calling as a food stylist.  Everyone thought it was going to taste sweet and then POW!  
The salsa has a great bite to it.  This is my new go to recipe this summer - delish!

  1. Yum. Sounds good and your picture is just beautiful. I'll have to pick up more blueberries at the farmers market this weekend and give it a try!
