Introduction: Cherry Ice Cream Salsa

Picture of Cherry Ice Cream Salsa
Serve a teaspoon (or 3!) of this fruity habanero salsa over homemade Ice cream for a delicious burst of sweet/salty heat! 

  • 4-5 Maraschino Cherries (1 Tablespoon)- diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Habanero Pepper- finely diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon canned Chipotle- finely diced
  • 2 Tablespoon Light Corn Syrup
  • 2 teaspoons maraschino Cherry juice
  • 1 generous pinch Salt

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour (or overnight), giving the flavors time to meld.

This little salsa is SO SCRUMPTIOUS... I'm going to start keeping Maraschino Cherries in my pantry from now on. One taste and I'll bet you do, too!

OMG... the creamy-sweet ice cream was TWICE as delicious with the crisp/salty/sweet heat from the Cherry Salsa.

You've just GOT to try this threeforks. Tasting is believing!!!

Thank you for your comment!

I will try it. I showed it to my mom, also a lover of spicy things, and she pretty much told me I had to make it. :)

I'm confident you'll both love it... and don't forget the pinch of salt!

I look forward to your personal "review"! ;-)
