Pepper in fruit salsa? If you think it sounds odd, attempt this vibrant salsa. Blended with blueberries and other fruit, red and black pepper dashes add just enough warmth to kindle a tasty mix.
Offer this dynamic flavored sauce with ice cream and also extra pound cake, as revealed right here. Or try it as a side with smoked pork, barbequed pork chops, or poultry.
Fresh blueberries are offered year-round and are most bountiful in midsummer-ready to blend right into shakes, toss straight into your favorite poultry salad, or spray over lemon meringue or lotion pie. You should know that blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Studies show that antioxidants might help reduce cholesterol accumulation that adds to cardiovascular disease, stroke, and various other age-related conditions.
Mildly spiced blueberry salsa adds zest to dessert.
