Salsa is always healthy, easy to make, and very versatile. I like to mix up my salsa recipes by using different in-season fruits.
This mango salsa is tangy, sweet, and spicy. Use it to add a tropical flavor to your favorite tacos, party dippers, or salad dressings.
I’m a big fan of easy meals. Using homemade salsa to accompany store bought foods is a great way to introduce nutritious homemade foods to your family without the time commitment. I used this batch of mango salsa as a dressing to top a pre-grilled chicken half from the grocery store. The chicken and salsa sat on a huge bed of mixed greens. The dish probably could have served 2, if not 3, people. Confession: I ate the whole thing. It was SO tasty. Was too full for dessert but had just enough room for a glass of vino.
