Mmmm.  Salsa is great with everything isn’t it?  Nachos, tacos, grilled chicken, grilled beef…you name it.  It’s especially delicious if it is made with fresh ingredients!  It’s easy to open a jar of salsa, and there’s nothing wrong with that obviously (we eat a lot of jarred salsa), but when I take the time and make a fresh salsa I’m reminded of how much better they taste!  And really, they’re very easy to make, and most of the time I have the ingredients on hand which is nice!

I made this Fresh Tomato & Mango Salsa last weekend for my hubby’s birthday, and I served it with Mexican Style Flank Steak Tacos and the combination was amazing!  SO fresh and tasty!  I hope you make and enjoy it!

    Would you believe that I am half Mexican, and I don’t like salsa!!?? Maybe it’s because I loathe onions and cilantro. Everyone is always shocked when I say I don’t like it. I eat like a 2 year old, what can I say 🙂 Your looks really pretty though and I bet for salsa eaters, it’s super yummy!!!
