Strawberry Avocado Salsa with Talapia

One of the April spotlight fruits is Strawberries. We bought a whole case of them this weekend and we have been putting them in everything. Several of us here have red stained fingers and lips from eating them as fast as we can. Strawberries are one of those amazing foods that taste like absolute heaven when they are fresh and taste less good when they are frozen. So we are getting all the strawberries we can while the gettin' is good. 

One of the more interesting Food $ense strawberry recipes is for a Strawberry tostada. You see lots and lots of recipes for strawberry desserts, there are actually very few savory recipes out there, so I just had to try it. I did a little bit of web research and found a very similar recipe for Strawberry Salsa. 

We ate it plain, tried it with chips and then topped some tilapia with the stuff. It was delicious! The strawberries add a really fun and surprising sweetness to traditional salsa ingredients. This experiment was a wild success.
