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.

    This looks amazing … I’m grilling salmon this week and plan on using a mango cilantro sauce to top. I’ll have to try this sometime soon as well! I’d love it with a bunch of blue tortilla chips 😉

    Another delicious recipe. All my favorites in one dish, yum! Might be pretty tasty on some jerk chicken.

    This looks fantastic! I love mango – my favorite way to eat it is simply with a fork…probably how I’d enjoy this recipe as well. Your photography is simply mouth watering good. Thanks.
