Blueberries are everywhere in Georgia right now! We are taking advantage of the bounty by serving up this easy-to-make salsa with handmade chips, or as a bruschetta with a little goat cheese.
Jalapeños, shallots and cilantro aren’t what we usually think as accompanying sweet blueberries – but they make it a salsa that pops with bright flavors and colors. Cilantro is an effective heavy metal natural detox for the body. This herb’s strong antioxidant properties, in part due to the flavonoid quercetin, helps protect against the damage caused by free radicals in the body. And the blueberries in the salsa are a powerhouse of nutrition! Blueberry’s are a lower glycemic index fruit and full of antioxidants to keep your body healthy.
