Last week I had small amounts of cherries and blueberries that needed to be used. So, I broke out the cherry chopper and made a lovely berry salsa to put on top of our grilled fish. This isn't a very adventuresome way to incorporate fruits into a meal, it is a basic recipe. What's good about it is you can use whatever fruits you have on hand and use it top whatever protein you have on hand - fish, chicken, pork - they are all good.
The recipe below is based on what I had on hand, but is easily altered based on what is available and personal preference.
1/2 c. Cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
1/2 c. Blueberries
1/4 c. Diced Red Onion
1 Tbs. Finely diced Jalapeno
1 tsp. Rice Vinegar
Juice from 1/2 lime
Mix all ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let rest about 20 minutes before serving.
