This Strawberry Mango Salsa is perfect spring and summer! Serve it with chips, on tacos or on top of grilled chicken or fish.
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, one of which is from Trader Joe’s. 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 fresh chopped cilantro, red onion, lime juice, salt, and a little bit of chili powder.
Bam! This salsa has it all! Sweet, tart, tangy and fresh! The combination of all the flavors is a true fiesta for the 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!
