How to Make Three Fruit Salsas for Your Summer Grilling

With all the sweet, juicy fruits available in the summer, it almost seems like there's not enough days in the season to eat them all! Sure, you can snack on an avocado or throw some blueberries back between meals, but there's no reason you shouldn't be using them on your dinner plates in a savory fashion, too. These three fruit salsas are perfect for pretty much anything that comes off your grill: they're simple, flavorful and give you yet another excuse to eat all the fruit you can during these warm weather months. Just combine the individual ingredients in a bowl, and get to grubbing!

Step 3: Blueberry Lime Jalapeño Salsa

The heat and heartiness of the jalapeño and corn in this blueberry lime salsa would go really well with a steak. You could even grill the corn first before cutting off the kernels to bring a smoky char to the salsa as well!

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • Sweet corn kernels, cut from 1/2 an ear of corn
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
  • Zest of 1/2 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
