Strawberry Salsa

Skinny Fresh Strawberry Salsa

Skinny Strawberry Salsa

I made this simple strawberry salsa recently to go with the grilled pork we were planning for dinner.

It’s based on the Pam Anderson’s “Create-Your-Own Fruit Salsa” recipe from her book, The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight and Eating Great.

In her headnotes, Pam explains that you can “use whatever seasonal fruit you’ve got: mangoes, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, melons, strawberries, blueberries, apples, or pear. Or use a mix of fruit.

Since it’s strawberry season what I had was strawberries!

She goes on to explain that you should choose a bell pepper color to contrast with the fruit, which means I should have used green or yellow to contrast with the strawberries. Unfortunately, I only had a red one so I went with it.

The Weight Watchers Skinny on this Strawberry Salsa

Fresh fruit salsas are a delicious way to boost your intake of fruits and vegetables.

This strawberry salsa recipe makes a generous 2 cups of salsa, or about 6 (1/3-cup) servings. And it’s made exclusively from Weight Watchers Power Foods so it’s Simply Filling.

According to my nutritional estimates each 1/3-cup serving has 29 calories and 1 Weight Watchers Points Plus. But since it’s all fruits and vegetables I would consider it 0. Would you?

Although my photo doesn’t do it justice, this was just the right thing to perk up our pork. It would be great on grilled chicken, shrimp or fish too.

Enjoy!

    Wow! This looks incredibly yummy. I have almost all the ingredients already so I’ll be making this one after a short stop at the grocery store!

    This looks really good. It could also be used to make homemade tacos – we use ground turkey breast and high fiber tortilla shells, and in summer, this would be delicious with the many fruits that are in season.
