To utilize all those great berries that are in season right now – why not make a Summer Berry Salsa

I’ve been buying berries in bulk at the market and while we eat them raw, I like to make some simple recipes to use them all up – justifies buying more the next week, right?

This Summer Berry Salsa recipe is super easy and tastes amazing, the kids are especially smitten with this one. It’s also one that children can help prepare, there’s a lot of pride in being able to assist or completely make such a great recipe!

While I love the tomato-based spicy salsa year-round, there’s something new and refreshing about a summer berry salsa.

Easy Summer Berry Salsa

I like my berry salsa served on a baguette or crostini slice myself, though these are also great with cinnamon chips too. 

There are a lot of options in this recipe, to really make it your own. To make it easier for guests, mascarpone could be spread on bread before serving.

As well, if you aren’t a cilantro fan, just leave it out. I am, actually I can’t get enough. Yet I know a few people that aren’t, so it’s nice that this recipe can be altered to suit tastes.

  1. This sounds great except for the cilantro as we don’t care for it. I definetly will try it out -thanks

  2. This looks delicious and easy to make, I will definitely make a batch on my next day off 🙂

  3. This sounds and looks so appetising, I’d be surprised if anyone could resist. In the old days we did sometimes eat strawberries with bread and butter but otherwise I’ve never eaten fruit except as a dessert. 🙂

  4. I have never tried the cider vinegar on berries but it is time I gave this recipe a try! Mmmm.

  5. Yummy, this looks lovely. Crostini are my favourite to have with everything too.

  6. This is a great idea for using berries in unusual ways. The wild blueberry crop is dismal this year in northern ON (we’ve had a drought, so the berries are sparse and small), so I’m resorting to store bought. But you can get some really good wild blueberries in the frozen food aisle these days.

  7. This is super interesting! I normally don’t experiment too much when it comes to food, but I love berries, I LOVE!!! cilantro and I love bread so together, they must be a hit!! I will try this recipe this weekend.

  8. You had me at mascarpone! I love the idea of berries with cilantro. It’s a combo which I’ve never tried.

  9. I really like your recipe for Berry Salsa, It would make a wonderful light lunch on our hot summer days. Thank you for this great idea.

  10. So simple, yet we’ve never eaten berries this way! What a great little appetizer for parties, too! Summer is almost over now (cry), so we’d better get those fresh, in-season berries while we can!

  11. These are all berries that we love. I know this is a recipe our family would enjoy.
