Hi, my name is Danae and I’m a salsa addict. Yes it’s true, I have a real salsa problem. I put it on almost everything. Eggs, cottage cheese, salad, chicken, fish, mix it in with rice or pasta dishes, chips, and sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful. This Strawberry Mango Salsa was meant to go with dinner last night, but probably half of it ended up in my stomach before it made it to the plates.
I suppose if I’m going to have an addiction to a type of food, this one isn’t so bad. There are several jarred salsas that I love, two of which are from Trader Joe’s. They have a double roasted salsa and a pineapple salsa that I can’t get enough of! I also love the Archer Farms black bean and corn salsa at Target, another one where chips are not required, just hand me a spoon!
I have to say though nothing beats homemade salsa. I love the freshness of the vegetables or fruit in the case of this Strawberry Mango Salsa. The idea for this salsa came from a conversation I was having with my mom over the weekend. She was telling me that while she was at Whole Foods they had an amazing strawberry salsa to sample. Well this got my brain going and I knew I had to make some kind of strawberry salsa.
I had a champagne mango left over in the fridge from my Strawberry Mango Lassi I made last week, so I decided that Strawberry Mango Salsa would be perfect to make. I’ve made mango salsa many times, but have never added strawberries to it. To make the salsa I diced up a cup of strawberries and a cup of mango and put them in a bowl. I then added a couple tablespoons of fresh chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup of red onion, the juice of a lime, salt, and a little bit of chili powder.
Bam! This salsa has it all! Sweet, tart, tangy, salty, and fresh! The combination of all the flavors is a true fiesta for my tastebuds. I served the salsa over chicken, but it would also be incredible on fish tacos, a grilled piece of steak, mixed in with some black beans and rice for a vegetarian dish, or simply with a bowl of chips (or large spoon). If you have a salsa addiction or if you just like salsa give this Strawberry Mango Salsa a try!
