Make a fresh and simple supper that your whole family will love with this twist on a traditional taco. Strawberries mixed together with the tomatoes in this salsa, adding a fruity zing. When selecting strawberries for the salsa, choose berries with an intense aroma— those will be the freshest and ripest. You can also use the salsa recipe as a dip for chips or to serve alongside fish or chicken. Because turkey cutlets are so thin, they make an excellent choice for a weeknight meal with their quick cooking time. To warm the tortillas, put them on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave in 30-minute increments until the tortillas are warm.
