Red Raspberry Salsa (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

I love the sweet-tart taste of red raspberries paired with unexpected flavors, such as the spiciness of a salsa. This Red Raspberry Salsa is super easy to whip up and oh-so-pretty at your next party! Just mix frozen raspberries with lime juice, chili peppers, green onions, and cilantro, and you have a flavor pizzazz for your table. Plus, raspberries are packed with nutrition for such a skinny calorie return. 

With only 5 ingredients, you can mix up this Red Raspberry Salsa in about 5 minutes. Just make sure you have a package of frozen red raspberries in your freezer to turn to anytime you want to create this healthy, flavorful accompaniment for chips or whole grain flatbread. This recipe is also delicious as an accompaniment to savory foods, such as lentil patties, potato hash, or veggie balls.
