When I’m lucky enough to keep the chipmunks away from our strawberries, I’m able to make one of my favorite summer snacks — Strawberry Cilantro Salsa. This recipe is light, fresh, juicy, flavorful and healthy. It’s great as an appetizer with pita or chips, or served over grilled chicken or fish. It’s quick and easy, and keeps for up to a week in the fridge. I recently served this at an event, and it was a big hit. The ingredients are fresh and simple — strawberries, cilantro, tomatoes, red onion, and a touch of lime. Most of these are growing in my garden, so I use whatever is currently ripe, and supplement from the market if need be. By July hopefully the majority of this dish will come straight from the garden.

 ** You’ll see that I often don’t designate specific quantities and measurements in my recipes. I do this because you know better than I do how much food your family needs and what your tastes are. Cooking isn’t an exact science, anyway — it’s more of an art. (Baking is another story — it actually is science — so I include measurements for my baking recipes.) So use whatever quantity you’d like, make changes to suit your tastes, and substitute ingredients to reflect what’s fresh in the garden and what’s available in your kitchen.
