Two Easy Fruit Salsas Recipes - Fresh Strawberry Salsa and Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa

6 years ago

With the weather finally turning warming and the farmer's market opening right around the corner, I can't wait for the casual dinners that the coming months will bring.

One of my favorite summer snacks is fresh salsa. Although I love tomato salsas, fruit salsas are a nice sweet and tangy alternative.

One of my all time favorite salsas is Fresh Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa. I first time made this salsa years ago when a class mother shared her recipe with me. I remember making a batch of this mango salsa and gobbling up the entire bowl with tortilla chips over a casual lunch with a friend. This fresh salsa has been a favorite ever since. Not only is this Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa perfect as an appetizer or snack, but it goes wonderfully with grilled chicken or fish.

This past week I spotted another fruit salsa recipe, one for Strawberry Salsa on a recipe card from Whole Foods featuring recipes with strawberries. Strawberries have been popping up everywhere, and I've been thinking of ways to use all these beautiful red berries. Like the Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa, this Strawberry Salsa would be wonderful as a snack or appetizer, or served on top of a piece of baked or grilled salmon.

Here are the recipes for Fresh Mango Avocado Pepper Salsa and Fresh Strawberry Salsa.
