The Doris Project (TDP) Week 18: Strawberry Salsa

03aStrawberrySalsabfLOStrawberry jam, sure; and strawberry cookie bars are a no-brainer, heck, even strawberry ice cubes dropped into a sparkling cocktail are pretty much of a given, but…

Strawberry salsa?

Yeah, youbetcha!

Today’s Doris Project recipe is a tangy blend of those luscious red berries with green pepper, sweet onion, and French dressing, and I only changed stuff a wee, tiny bit!

01aSpicyFrenchbfLOSeriously; I was fresh out of scallions, so subbed diced sweet onion; and, in place of the called for Catalina French dressing, I used this nice, very low sugar home made Zippy! French dressing – made with just a bit of hot sauce. By all means use the 01aStrawberriesbfLOCatalina, or, if you really want a treat, make your own – it’s wicked simple to toss together in a blender, and my version has way less sugar than the stuff from the market, and tastes better, too!

TDP Recipe:
•2-1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
•1 cup chopped green pepper
•2 tbsp chopped green onion
•2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
•1/3 cup Catalina dressing
•Dash hot sauce
•Black pepper, to taste

02bAddDressingbfLOAs I made it:
•2-1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
•3/4 cup diced (about 1/2 pepper)
•2 tbsp chopped weet onion
•2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
•1/3 cup Zippy! French dressing
•1/2 tsp sugar
•Dash hot sauce
•Black pepper, to taste

04aAddParsleybfLOToss the berries, pepper, and onion with the sugar, then drizzle the dressing over, add the parsley, and toss again to coat.

Give it a taste, and if you think it needs it, add a bit more hot sauce and/or black pepper to taste, then cover and stash in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend before serving.

Great with chips!

But, then I got to thinking…

Mebbe you could make yourself a nice batch of waffles and mebbe some oven fried chicken tenders and mebbe then top the waffle with the chicken and the whole shebang with this very nice salsa.

Yeh, now we’re talking!
