I saw the Pioneer Woman make this on TV one weekend and decided to try it. I wasn’t disappointed. It was delicious! This salsa is great served with grilled fish or chicken. You could probably serve it as an appetizer with tortilla chips, too.

STRAWBERRY SALSA

  • 2 pints strawberries, hulled and diced
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • ½ bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a bowl, combine strawberries, red onion, red pepper, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice together.
  2. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Before serving, taste and adjust seasoning, adding more lime juice or salt and pepper, if desired.

Warm Cheesy Salsa Dip

Warm Cheesy Salsa Dip | Pinky's Pantry
It’s Super Bowl weekend this weekend! My Old Goat can hardly wait. His favorite team, the San Francisco 49ers, are playing. He’s going to be glued to the TV all day so I’ve planned a few appetizers and tailgate party dishes for him to nosh on while he enjoys the game.

I learned to make this recipe from my sister, Helen, who is a great cook and an amazing hostess. She was living in Ohio and during one of our frequent phone calls, she told me about this recipe that was perfect for football parties. I decided to give it a try and have been making it for Superbowl Sunday ever since. Not only is it deliciously addicting, but it’s super easy to prepare. All it takes is three ingredients. Now what could be simpler than that?
