1 cup strawberries, hulled and cut into a 1/2" dice

1 tsp -? Fresh jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed (wear gloves) and cut into a  1/2"dice

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice, divided (zest the limes first and use as garnish)

Lime zest for garnishing

Directions:

Using only 1 Tbsp of lime juice and 1 Tbsp of Flying Olive Persian Lime EVOO, mix the first 11 ingredients together. Refrigerate for, if possible, at least 30 minutes.
