Versatile dish: Mango Salsa

The summer is a time for cookouts, parties, days at the beach or pool, spending time with friends and family, or just plain working. Who also feels like cooking when it’s 80+ degrees out? Whether it’s because I’m just not home or because it’s too hot, I am a big fan of whatever makes my life easier when it comes to eating in the warm months. I use my slow cooker a lot in the summer for this reason. Throw a hunk of meat in the slow cooker with some spices and broth for pulled whatever. Defrost some meat for the grill and pick up some veggies at the farmer’s market and you have yourself a meal in no time. But meat and veggies on the grill every night gets old fast without something to spice it up. This salsa is just the dish to spice up meat and veggies on the grill. 
This is one of my favorite side dishes because it’s as versatile as it is delicious. I’ll whip up a batch of it and serve it over grilled chicken or steak for an easy dinner that is good enough to serve to company or have mid-week, I’ll eat it on top of a garden salad with homemade dressing for lunch, or serve it with vegetable crudités or organic tortilla chips as an appetizer. Because this salsa is so versatile, I end up bringing it with me to cookouts too. It’s really tasty on top of burgers. My daughter will just eat it as is on the side of whatever else she’s having for dinner.

    We make something very similar to this, and I have to say–everyone should try it! They’ll love it! We serve ours over seafood (salmon, mahi mahi, scallops, other fish) and even my kids eat the seafood so well this way!
