Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa
These were special strawberries because they are the first strawberries I have eaten since I had a dinosaur for a pet and I’ll tell you why.
When I was young, we lived in the country and had a huge garden. One year, Dad planted 6 bazillion strawberry plants that yielded enough strawberries to cure world hunger for a least a week (reminiscent of a squash episode, if I’m not mistaken). The birds stole so many strawberries they were falling out of trees half eaten (the strawberries, not the birds). I began to loathe strawberries, as did all of our relatives and neighbors (and birds). To this day, strawberries still make me gag but I am an adult and I eat them because I know they are good for me and I want you to be proud of me for creating a recipe I know you will like even though I don’t want to eat it. *Southern debutante curtsy*
Eat well and respect your body. Your life depends on it!

2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon olive oil
