Mango and Strawberry Salsa

This simple, fruity and chunky salsa is a wonderful summer dish.  It goes well with tortilla chips as a stand alone dip, however, it can also work well as a topping for our summer vegetable fajita recipe or as a condiment for many other savory dishes.  This bright salsa never lasts long at the dinner table or at a party because it is so refreshing and energizing. 

SALSA Ingredients:  
  • 1 yellow Mango;  diced
  • 5 Strawberries;  diced
  • 1 Tbsp. Cilantro;  finely minced
  • 1/2 Lemon;  juiced
  • 1/2 orange Pepper;  finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper 
  • a dash of Cumin

  1.  Wash and clean all fresh produce.
  2. Dice the strawberries and mango into 1/4 inch squares.  Also dice the bell pepper as small as you can.
  3. Next, finely chop the cilantro.
  4. Combine all ingredients into a medium bowl and gently mix them together.
  5. Tip:  For a spicy version, add some diced jalapeƱo pepper into the mix.  Omit the seeds for a just-a-bit spicy version.
