While I totally love my job, as the beginning of the school year is looming-I am going to miss the stay at home mom life. I keep telling Eric I just need a really cool computer, and then I will for sure become a famous blogger. Ha. Yeah right. I never even remember to blog. I really want to try though. So...I am hoping to post lots of recipes in the next three weeks, and share some of my favorite summer recipes. The low country boil is definitely on the top of our family’s faves. Next up-strawberry & mango salsa. I really love this recipe mostly because it is soooo easy. But also because it is versatile, and can be used for several meals during the week. I typically make my salsa on a Sunday, so we can eat on it for a few days. I usually start serving it with some type of spicy fish and rice. It works perfectly as a salad dressing for lunches, and is bomb on tacos or nachos.
-Peel and dice mangos (this part is actually no joke. You might have to check out a YouTube video to see how to do it). Also- make sure you find ripe mangos. .
-Dice the strawberries, vegetables and chop cilantro.
-Add all is the ingredients, including the lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
-Cover and refrigerate. (I think it is best when refrigerated for a few hours before served)
We had this tonight with panko crusted tilapia, and cilantro lime rice (will post this recipe next). LOVE on a hot summer night!
