This spicy strawberry, avocado & grilled corn salsa will make everyone in your familia happy

Recently, I was invited by the California Strawberry Commission to visit strawberry farms in northern California. Now, I was already a fan of strawberries, but I had no idea that they could be so versatile. I thought of them as a great healthy fruit that could also be made into desserts, jellys, and jams, but that's about it. Then I ate food created with strawberries by marvelous chefs and a whole new world of possibilities opened up. So much so that I created what I like to call salsa fresa.

My salsa fresa is a strawberry, avocado, and grilled corn salsa that I am super proud of. It is so yummy and refreshing. Why had I never thought of making salsa with strawberries before? It totally works.
