4th of July Fruit Salsa Recipe
Not all salsas have to be spicy and be packed with tomatoes! Have a some summer fun and mix it up a little! This 4th of July Fruit Salsa is stuffed with fruit and tossed in lime juice and cilantro. We served it with tortilla chips and it was a fun twist on summer salsa. It’s the perfect side dish or appetizer for all your 4th of July parties this year!
Red, White and Blue Food
The red comes from the strawberries and the blue comes from the blueberries. But what are those white pieces? Jicama! The jicama provides a good crunch and soaks up all the lime juice flavors, yum! If you’re confused by jicama you’re not alone, my husband has no idea what I brought home from the grocery store! I must confess, I had never bought one until now but I had always loved them on veggie trays so I decided to give it a shot. I found it by the bananas at my grocery store and definitely needed some help finding it. But my salsa needed to be red, white and blue so I needed something white!
I just peeled the jicama like a potato and chopped it up! I ended up snacking on the leftover pieces all night long. Parker even found a recipe to make jicama fries so he’s excited about that.
The 4th of July is possibly my favorite holiday! There’s incredible food, we shoot things into the sky and watch them explode and everyone in the country color coordinates their outfits! And all the parades! It’s just a great time of year with summer and all the festivities the holiday brings. I’ll be bringing this 4th of July Salsa to our family parties this holiday and I know it will be a big hit!

I have a few more patriotic treats coming this year, so watch out for those too! I try my best to not use too many dyes to make everything red, white and blue because I would rather eat food than dye! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to pin and share this 4th of July Fruit Salsa!
