Spicy Blueberry Salsa

Blueberries and jalapeño peppers – a surprising pair that’ll definitely bring a smile to your face! When you pair the crisp berry taste with that bright medium heat of jalapeño, you’ve got a very special salsa for sultry summer months. Spicy blueberry salsa is a great option for cook-outs and other family outdoor gatherings.

While this salsa is perfectly delicious served with tortillas as an appetizer, it’s also a perfect chunky salsa side for barbecue and/or grilled meats. You can also mix it up by swapping out the blueberries for raspberries or mangos instead. Other berries and tropical fruits work as well, but these two are especially tasty.
