Roasted Strawberry Tomato Salsa

Roasted strawberry tomato salsa is heavenly. There is no doubt this interesting strawberry-tomato-salsa-recipe-imagecombination will get your taste buds jumping.

Yes jumping. Let me get serious for just a minute.

Nic from "BakingSheet Blog" had this on her blog and brought to everyone's attention October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and posted this "Pink" mouth-watering Roasted Strawberry and Tomato Salsa just to bring a little more awareness of cancer into our lives.

She can tell you about it better than the Capt'n so here is the very important message for all of us.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and Emily decided to sponsor a mini event to raise awareness. You can find some facts about breast cancer in the US here and in Australia here. Breast cancer is one of the most common, but also most researched, cancers. Every day will hopefully bring us closer to a cure. Or a vaccine, like the one that is currently in testing around the world (and found to be 100% effective!) for the prevention of cervical cancer.

My contribution to the event is some excellent - and pink - salsa. It is sweet and smokey and terribly addictive. Bring it out to a barbeque and share it with your loved ones.

The Pink Salsa

Roasted Strawberry and Tomato Salsa

8-oz strawberries
8 oz cherry tomatoes
Juice of ½ lime
¼ cup onion (1/2 smallish onion)
½ - 1 tsp chipotle in adobo sauce
½ tsp salt
pinch black pepper

Roast strawberries and tomatoes in a 350F oven for 45 minutes. They will be very soft. Allow to cool.

In a food processor, whiz onion and chipotle pepper. Add in lime juice, strawberries, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Pulse several times, until strawberry tomato salsa is chopped/blended evenly, but do not let it puree completely.

Chill until ready to serve. Makes about 1 1/2 cups

Here are a few comments Nic's readers made about Strawberry Tomato Salsa:

"strawberry salsa is one of my favorites! It's also very good with sour cream- which turns it even pinker!

"Also- in a quesadilla with brie.. heaven!"

"That looks so good with a big bag of chi ps... I definitely wish that I had made quesadillas to go with this."

"Do you think I could have found pink cheese to match?"

"Thanks! I'm glad I didn't make a larger batch, or I would have needed another bag.. I must try this combo when summer arrives."

"I've never mixed strawberries and tomatoes. Sounds intriguing."

"What a great combination of flavors! Looks so tempting.."
