Tart raspberry flavor blended with traditional salsa ingredients makes a tasty and versatile salsa. Use as a dip for chips or as a colorful accompaniment to grilled chicken, pork or fish. To toast cumin (and intensify flavor), cook in a hot skillet just until it's aromatic, about 30 seconds.


3 packages (6 ounces each) Driscoll’s Raspberries
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, or to taste
2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper
1-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1-2 teaspoons granulated sugar, to taste
1 teaspoon each mashed or crushed garlic and ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mash gently with a whisk or potato masher to release berry juices, leaving large pieces of raspberry in the salsa. Chill 1 hour for flavors to blend. Adjust salt, sugar and pepper to taste. Serve with chips or over fish, pork or poultry.


Makes: about 3 cups
