So many blueberries, so little time! Blueberries are prolific this year. The fields are heavy with them, my freezer is bursting with them, and I have been trying to invent new ways to use them. We had a lovely planked salmon the other day, and so I thought, why not? Blueberry salsa and grilled salmon are an exquisite match, it turns out. We are still picking cherry tomatoes from our deck and fragrant, fresh basil from our herb garden, so I took advantage of all of this bounty, to pull together this lively, fruity salsa. I hope you enjoy it.
Note: I used a wonderful organic pomegranate vinegar that my sister gave me. If you can’t find this, try any other fruit vinegar that you may have – raspberry would be nice too.
I will be sharing this recipe with the gang at Fiesta Friday, Throwback Thursday, Foodie FriDIY and Saucy Saturdays. If you haven’t checked out these amazing link-parties, be sure that you do! Hours of fun and great ideas await you!
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/3 cup fresh tomatoes, seeded and chopped finely
¼ cup red onion, finely minced
½ teaspoon finely grated orange rind
2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely minced
1 ½ tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
2 teaspoons pomegranate vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the blueberries, tomatoes, onion, orange rind, and basil in a small bowl.
Stir together the orange juice, vinegar and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over the blueberry mixture. Check for seasoning and adjust.

Yay! A new recipe to make for my abundance of blueberries. 🙂 Looks fabulous, Julianna.
Oh, so we are not the only ones with an abundance! Any other ideas for what to do with them? This has been a great year for blueberries! Let me know! 😀
This is definitely a refreshing take on fruit salsa. Thank you!
My pleasure! I’m so glad that you like it! 😀
Sounds fabulous!!! I’m not a fruit eater but that looks great 😀😀
Hey Elaine! Glad it appeals to you even though you don’t eat fruit! Have an awesome week! 😀
And you xx
Love the styling here! Yum! 🙂
Thanks so much, Bonnie! I really appreciate that! 😀
Hmm, never thought of blueberries with basil and tomato before. I know you suggested with Salmon (although I would suggest East coast rather than west, but I’m biased obviously), but I think it would also be brilliant on some crostini as an appetizer with drinks.
Oh wow, Matt! I love the idea of the crostini! Isn’t this why blogging is so amazing? I am going to try that for sure! Thanks for the great idea! 😀
Yes! I’m putting fruit in all the things lately! I’d love to taste your salsa!!
Haha, it sounds like many of us are doing that this year! It has been a banner year for fruit and berries! 😀
Great way to serve blueberries and tomatoes. I don’t think I would have ever thought of that combination but it sure sounds delicious. Blueberries are in the fridge and tomatoes and basil are in the garden – guess I am good to go with your recipe Julianna 🙂
Well, let me know if you try it Judi! It may not be to everyone’s liking, but it went over very well here! Happy weekend to you! 😀
I never thought to put blueberries in salsa. They sure made a pretty dish and sounds delicious!

This salsa looks so colorful and beautiful with all those fresh ingredients! Almost too pretty to eat!
Oooo Juliana, what a great salsa this had to be, and with the addition of blueberries, it seems like it really popped! With the abundance of blueberries this time of year, this is definitely one to try on these warm, muggy days. Thanks for sharing your recipe 🙂
Oh, another wonderful recipe! I know I will have to make this, it sounds delicious. I have raspberry vinegar but I might make some pomegranate vinegar so I can make this! 🙂
Be sure to pass on the recipe for the vinegar! Let me know how you like this, Petra 😀
