Have you been going for cherry picking lately? Isn’t it loads of fun? Well, we love this summer activity but the tough part is always left for me. Yup! You got it right!!
Preserving these gorgeous red ripe cherries and using them efficiently. So the idea for today’s recipe originated from this thought and my love for munching on salsa dips while watching an interesting TV show in my comfortable couch. 🙂
I also feel that in these warm sunny days, Cherry Orange Salsa is a quick, easy and healthy recipe to make. I love the sweet, spicy, tangy and salty flavors mixed in one bowl and eaten guilt free as a salad or may be as my Husband insists that salsa is incomplete without chips so he makes sure to dip salty tortilla chips into the Cherry Orange Salsa.
The delicious juicy orange not only adds wonderful color to this salsa but also gives it an extra flavor and promotes clean eating. This wonderful fruit is full of vitamin C and when in need for the extra boost of energy orange juice is always preferred all year round. 🙂
Cherry Orange Salsa is a super simple dip/salad for which I crushed some ripe cherries in a food processor and added them to the chopped oranges, red onions, bell pepper and jalapeno, seasoned it with salt and citrus and garnished with fresh cilantro.
Within minutes the beautiful and mouthwatering Cherry Orange Salsa was ready.
Prepare it immediately or a day ahead if need be. It’s a complete crowd pleaser and my sister in law’s favorite. 🙂
