1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup diced cucumber
3 tablespoons minced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add jalapeño, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand 30 minutes. Stir in lime juice.
Stir together strawberries and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add vinegar mixture, and stir to coat. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in an airtight container up to 2 days.
Made this for a picnic recently and it was a big hit. You can use whichever fruits/berries you like. If you don't want a lot of "heat" just use a tiny amount of minced jalapeno (or skip it altogether).
