Tomato Mango Salsa

Another week of #TomatoLove is here! Are you as exited as I am? I don’t think anyone loves tomatoes as much as I do! I become weakened at the knees at the smell of the stem…just beautiful! We are still swimming in tomatoes given by our neighbors and finding more creative ways to use them. I called my mom and asked her for advice on this weeks top- “salsas and dips”. At first I was thinking about a roasted tomato and feta dip, but with this scorching heat, that wouldn’t feel so appetizing to me at the moment. Then mom suggested a fruit-tomato salsa.

Now here me out, I am pretty picky with my salsa-you know, living in So Cal and all. I like my salsa authentic and spicy made by someone that doesn’t speak a word of English. But why not…go big or go home right? The mangoes looked amazing and I had a hot pepper…I can do this. And I did. Slightly sweet and a nice kick was what this salsa was all about. Refreshing and satisfying and carrying just enough heat.

    Mmmmm, mango salsa! I love that. My mom used to make a killer peach salsa with in-season peaches, but I haven’t tried making it with mango before. Thanks for the recipe, I’ll definitely try this out!
