Grilled Nectarine and Blueberry Salsa

A cinch to throw together.

Grilled Nectarine and Blueberry Salsa

For how easy it is to make, fruit salsa is pretty impressive….an excellent ROI, or return on investment for the time it takes to make it.

It makes a colorful condiment, side dish, topping for meat and fish, or dip for chips.

Fruit salsa is perfect for summer get-togethers, parties, appetizers, picnics, cookouts or even dessert.

I especially like the taste of fruit salsas that have sweet and savory flavors, and soft and crunchy textures.

In this recipe there are a combination of flavors; fruity, sweet, spicy, grilled…plus the savory flavors of red onion, jalapeno and cilantro.

It’s juicy and the colors are so darn pretty and vibrant that it can dress up fish or chicken in a matter of minutes.

This delightful salsa is made with grilled nectarines.

Grilled Skewered Nectarines

To me, when grilled, the nectarines taste a bit sweeter and softer.

The problem I have when I grill nectarines is that I sample them….one after the other because they’re so good.

And then I run short for my recipe.

So if you’re like me, adding a few more skewers of nectarines to the barbecue may be a good thing.

This delicious salsa can be served as an appetizer, side dish; topping for shredded pork, beef, fish, or chicken; a topping for tacos, nachos, tostadas; as a dip for pita or tortilla chips; or as a snack.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Salsa – In a medium size bowl,

add the onions.

11-cut-jalapenos

Just before chopping the jalapenos, an easy way to get rid of the seeds is to cut off the sides of the pepper first so that the seed area in the middle is completely separate like in the picture above.

Then just discard the middle seed area, and chop away at the rest of the pepper.
