Grilled Strawberry Salsa

Excerpt from my column in the Register Star and Daily Mail:

Grilling the strawberries brings out their sweetness and adds a nice hint of smokiness. It’s a tasty, colorful topping for grilled chicken, fish or pork.

12 large strawberries
Juice from 1/2 lime
1/4 cup chopped Vidalia onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno
1 tablespoon of sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

-Wash and remove caps from strawberries and place onto skewers (if using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes before using to prevent burning).
-Place skewered strawberries on grill over a medium-hot heat for about 6-7 minutes, turning once. Set aside.
-Place chopped onions, chopped jalapeno in lime juice, let sit for 10 minutes.
-Chop strawberries and add to lime mixture.
-Add sugar and cilantro, mix lightly. Salt and pepper to taste.
-Let flavors meld for at least 10 minutes.

Serve over grilled chicken, fish or pork.
