It’s Summer and one word that keeps coming up in my kitchen in the summer time is fresh. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, fresh recipes – summer means fresh to me and today I’m sharing one of my favorite new fresh salsa recipes featuring 3 of my favorite foods… Pineapples, Mangoes, and Avocados!
Even though Tennessee isn’t exactly known for it’s tropical trees, I can find a great selection of fresh produce in our local stores – which makes it feel like we have mango trees growing right in our backyard [which just happens to be a dream of mine]. I am loving this fresh salsa as a topping for tacos, in a delicious quick chicken wrap for lunch, or even as a snack with tortilla chips. The best part is I always have the main ingredients on hand and it’s something I can whip up as a single serving snack for myself or a larger batch for dinner.
During prep, a quick wipe down of my knife between chopping kept all my ingredients fresh and my counter top clean, which is important when you’re chopping red onions and jalapeno peppers.
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- 1 mango
