  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-3 fresh habanero peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic (in peels)
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and diced (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon honey, optional
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the habanero peppers and garlic cloves on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, flipping once.
  • Meanwhile, trim and dice the strawberries. Chop the onions and herbs. Place all the produce in a medium bowl.
  • Once the habaneros and garlic have roasted, peel the garlic and mince. Then remove the stems and seeds from the habaneros and mince them as well.
  • Add the garlic and one chopped habanero to the salsa. Add 3/4 teaspoon salt and mix well. Taste, then add more habanero if desired. (I used two.) Salt and pepper to taste. If strawberries are out of season, you may want to add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten the salsa.
