Common Homemade Salsa Questions:
Can I use different types of fruits?
No, I do not recommend swapping out any of the fruits because it will change the entire flavor and dish. Although, you can use more of less jalapeno depending on your spice preference. Also, if you are looking for a similar vegan salsa recipe that uses different fruit try this Mango Avocado Salsa.
How long will strawberry pineapple salsa stay fresh?
This salsa will stay fresh for up to 4 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Can I used canned or frozen fruits instead of fresh ones?
The only canned produce I would use in this recipe is canned pineapple tidbits. Fresh is much better, but if you want to save some chopping time go for it; just make sure you drain the juice from the can. I do not recommend using any frozen produce for this recipe, because when the fruit is de-thawed it will be mushy and leave your salsa a gross watery texture. Also, if you want to use bottled lime juice instead of fresh limes that is an option as well.
What should I serve fresh strawberry salsa with?
This salsa is great on its own with some tortilla chips! If you are looking to pair this with some main dishes try Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, tacos or in a burrito bowl for meal prep!
