Our new favorite salsa

This salsa is fabulous and super fresh.
There is nothing like fresh yummy salsa and warm crispy tortilla chips.


Gary & I sort of 'rate' restaurants as to how good their salsa is.
We have always done this...we are Mexican food junkies :)

I would totally frequent this place once or twice a week,
but it is in Santa I can't. Booo!


I am going to try my hardest to copy the taste of their salsa...I don't know if I can.
But I will try to conquer the SALSA!

I was able to make the Mango Salsa seen above on Gary's Mahi Mahi fish tacos.

I have seen recipes for mango salsa, but never really cared to make it.

Until I ate it. is like the mangoes are doing a little dance in your mouth...yum!

I couldn't wait to get home to try to make some!
We ate it on grilled tuna steaks, but my favorite was with grilled salmon.
It makes a great dip too, for chips or crackers.

Just chop all these things up.

1 mango
1/2 a cucumber
1/2 onion
1 jalapeno

Add a splash or two of lime juice.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

You could add cilantro...I just didn't have it on hand.

Place in the 'fridge to let the flavors mesh together!


Have a great Thursday!

Well...up until about 2 minutes ago, I couldnt figure out what I wanted for lunch..but now I know! Mexican it is! I totally rate the restaurant on the salsa too and my favorite local place is called La Hacienda...of my mouth is watering. Good thing it's not close to my office or I would be having it everyday for lunch!
