Blueberry Salsa is a very fresh and summery salsa. It’s a nice change from the tomato version.

This is not a traditional salsa. But before you raise your eyebrows and refuse to entertain the idea of eating blueberry salsa, remember that different types of fruit salsa have been around for a long time. Peach salsa, mango salsa and pineapple salsa have always been favorites. But now it’s time to try blueberry salsa! It’s delicious!

If you happen to be following the Weight Watchers program, this salsa counts as ZERO points for all color plans. That’s great!  Count tortilla chips as extra points.

There is no tomato in this salsa. It’s not needed. The blueberries are substituted for traditional tomatoes. Some of the blueberries in the recipe are chopped, and some of them are left whole. It’s best to use small or average-sized blueberries for this recipe. Lime juice is used in traditional salsa, but lemon juice is used in fruit salsa.

Make-ahead:

This is a great make-ahead recipe because it’s always nice to be able to allow the flavors to come together and blend. Some sitting time in the refrigerator will do that for you. Just assemble the salsa, wrap it in plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator. I suggest making it and serving it the same day.
