    Sounds good. I've made mango salsa and peach salsa with a similar recipe, but never strawberry salsa.

    Yum, I love fruit salsas, but I've never tried to make it myself. Maybe I'll do that this summer

    I could also see this being a good low cal salad dressing (for people who like fruit on their salads).

    It's delicious and somewhat elegant aswell.
    You're also someone I could see enjoying melon balls wrapped in pancetta ( Italian cured bacon ) Pacific Breeze.

    Well, I don't eat much meat in general, and I can't bring myself to eat an animal that's DNA is so similar to humans that we use it in humans. Plus, they are highly intelligent. It's kind of like eating a German Shepherd, or a chimpanzee.

    Really?
    I had no idea. That is disturbing.

    A lot of things about eating meat are disturbing. When I do eat it now, I make sure it isn't factory farmed. Even writing that makes me feel sick.

    Well, I grew up in a farming community and there's farms all around that raise their cattle naturally. I'm abit sketchy about getting meat from certain supermarkets though.

    I did, too, but there are lots of factory farms. And pretty much all people who raise cattle etc. feed them tons of antibiotics and hormones, which is why North American meat products are illegal in Europe.

    Scary stuff.
    I watched a PETA video, and it shows horrifying images of animals with rotting wounds, animals being tortured, animals with broken legs so they're forced to do nothing but eat and get fat. Chickens shoved in tiny coops, stacked on top of eachother. At the Maple Leaf factory I heard the workers harass the animals before killing them and sometimes stab them for fun. I don't think i'll be supporting Maple Leaf anymore.

    You don't exactly get the creme de la creme of society working in slaughter houses. Some pretty sadistic types hang out there. And the owners see the animals as "products," not sentient beings worthy of being humanely killed.

    Read this book, it changed my life and it's NOT preachy at all. Just well written and wonderful. Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals by Matthew Scully. He's a former speechwriter for George Bush, but he has his head screwed on straight.
