Blueberry salsa

    30 min

    The contrast between the sweet blueberries and tartness of the onions and chilli peppers makes this a great dish on its own with tortilla chips or served alongside barbecued chicken.

    Serves: 8 

    • 2 ripe beef tomatoes
    • 145g fresh or frozen blueberries
    • 125g onion, diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
    • 1/2 mild chilli pepper, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander
    • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped flat leaf parsley
    • salt and pepper to taste

    1. Bring a pot of water to the boil. Score the skin of the tomatoes by slicing an X into the skin on the bottom. Immerse the tomatoes in boiling water for about 15 seconds. Remove and place into a bowl of cold water. The skins should slip off easily. Peel the tomatoes, cut in half and remove the seeds. Chop the tomatoes and discard the seeds.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, blueberries, onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, mild chilli pepper, coriander and parsley. Pour in the rice vinegar and olive oil and stir gently to mix. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and keep in the fridge overnight to allow the flavours to blend. You may wish to drain the salsa slightly before serving, depending on how juicy your tomatoes are.

    This salsa is very delicious and refreshing. The contrast of the sweet blueberries with the heat of the hot peppers and the savory onions is perfect. Though I was skeptical about not adding lime juice to a salsa the choice of vinaeger to marry the bright and well chosen flavors in this salsa was well suited for this recipe. Along with the obvious health benefits of this salsa it is delicious, incredebly versatile and is well suited as a condiment for a myriad of dishes. It is the best fruit salsa I have ever had.  -  21 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent Salsa. I love the blueberry addition. I was surprized how it went very well with the slight heat of the salsa. I would only add a bit more salt.  -  16 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great marriage of flavors. I will definitely make blueberry salsa again. Loved the colors. When I made it(with wild ME blueberries) it didn't look anything like the picture.  -  28 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
