Strawberry Mango Salsa

Strawberry Mango Salsa
     I just got back from a little vacation down in Florida. I was loving the sun, the heat and the beautiful ocean, not to mention the food and drinks. It's such a different feel when one is in Florida. Everyone is kicked back and relaxed. Seems like everyone is happy. And who wouldn't be if you could sit by the ocean and soak up the rays with a cold drink in your hand. Simply paradise.

     I'm kind of stuck on the whole tropical food and drink thing right now. So I decided to make some Strawberry Mango Salsa. Fresh fruit is so plentiful in Florida that it's a shame not to keep enjoying those same great dishes even though I'm back in Minnesota.

    It seems that everything you eat or drink is fresh. The drinks are fruity and refreshing and the food was fresh and flavorful. I started out with this salsa because of the yummy fruit flavors. It is sweet with a hint of cilantro and onion it makes it hard to stop eating. This salsa would be good with cinnamon flavored tortilla chips, but regular chips are just as good.

     The next few posts will be focused on the great food that I had on vacation, so prepare yourself for some great tropical and seafood type dishes over the next few posts. But for now enjoy this salsa. I'm sure you're going to love it.
