Welcome Warmer Weather with Strawberry Mango Salsa

The second it gets hot outside I make salsa. I can’t really explain that fact but it’s true. Great weather is just one excuse to whip up some homemade salsa, make margaritas and enjoy an impromptu happy hour with friends. One type of salsa I especially love is fruit salsa because it’s so fun to come up with new sweet and spicy combinations.

I love spice, so this salsa reflects that. If you aren’t so keen on hot n’ spicy salsa, just discard the jalapeno seeds before adding.

I like to enjoy this salsa in the classic manner, with tons of extra salty tortilla chips, but I think it’d also be fantastic over grilled fish or barbecued chicken! Go crazy — the opportunities are endless.
