Rita's Strawberry Salsa

My SIL, Rita, came over for dinner recently and brought this amazingly fresh and summery Strawberry Salsa.  Of course, being the good blogger that I am, I immediately took a picture of it and asked her for the recipe!

Bits of jalapeno and red onion balance out the sweetness of the strawberries and a cream cheese base gives it a rich and tangy edge.  Serve it with Lime Tortilla Chips for a delightful, summery appetizer!

Rita's Fresh Strawberry Salsa

1 pound strawberries, diced
9 Tbsp uncooked red onion(s) – (½ Large red onion)
9 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped – (1/3 bunch)
3 Tbsp jalapeno pepper(s), minced – (1 large seeded jalapeno)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp lime zest, finely grated – (I grated ¾ lime)
½ tsp kosher salt 
½ tsp ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Enjoy!

Optional version – spread 1 tub light whipped cream cheese on a platter then top with salsa and garnish,
