We love salsa at our house, especially the fruit salsa--cherry, strawberry, mango, and peach. These fruits seem to take on the lime juice and heat from the Serrano chiles quite well. The result is a refreshing and delicious salsa that pairs well with both meat and white fish. Cherry is our favorite because they hold up a lot better than the other fruits and have a nice texture if you can get your hands on the firmer ones. We enjoy cherry salsa with grilled chicken burger, grilled fish burger, and pan fried white fish. Grab some cherries and make this salsa before they’re gone!
