This summer has been the summer of colorful salsa recipes here – love the fresh, untraditional taste of fruit salsas and this Easy Salsa with Berries is one of my favorite to make. I already shared my favorite mango salsa recipe with you last week and I also love making this Blender salsa pretty often.



Have you ever had a nice fruit salsa to go with your chicken, fish or chips? This berry salsa is super easy to make and worth trying!

I can’t wait to share with you another fruit salsa with apple pretty soon.

What ingredients do I need to make this homemade berry salsa?

How to make berry salsa?

I like to cut the blueberries and blackberries in half if they appear too big, but this is an optional step.

Chop strawberries into small cubes.

Combine all berries in a bowl. Add lime juice, salt, cilantro and jalapeno. Stir.

Refrigerate or serve immediately.

What are the best berries to make the perfect berry salsa?

I recommend choosing not overripe berries, they need to be ripe, but still firm.

Berries that work best for this salsa recipe are usually:

  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • blackberries
  • raspberries (I rarely ise raspberries, because they are usually too soft when I buy them)

Can you make berry salsa in advance?

While you can make this salsa up to 2 days in advance and it will still taste amazing, the berries will release juice, soften and “bleed” color, so it may not look as pretty as it did at the time you made it. I try to make my summer salsa with berries right before I plan to serve it.

How to store fresh, homemade salsa with berries?

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

  1. Hi there! I had fun cruising around your website. Your recipe for Berry Salsa caught my eye. We have an herb garden down behind the condo, so plenty of cilantro. I used raspberries, cause they’re nice and firm. Also added some chopped fresh mango. It’s mango season here in Hawaii. I used Sweetened Rice Vinegar for the dressing for the salsa. Served it with grilled salmon. Everyone loived it. Thanks for sharing!
