I’m from the tropics. Naturally, I’m into tropical fruits. Any tropical fruits you name, I love it! And this sunshine filled-salsa consists of all the bright and yummy fruits and vegetables … mmm, sign me up! Adapting this recipe from my old Williams-Sonoma’ Savoring series: Marilyn Tausend’s Savoring Mexico this one sure is a keeper.
Guys, for some of you peeling a mango is quite intimidating. It’s really not that bad. Check this out on how to easily peel this beautiful fruit. I promise, once you get the hang of it, … piece of cake.
All righty, super short post this time people. I need to get out there and help my strong hubby and kiddo shovel some snow. Oh-so-much snow … Come on, it’s almost May! I need to get in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo. Let me grab some tortilla chips (of course, loaded with some of this happy tropical fruit salsa) and a snow shovel. Chewing. Smiling. Loading more salsa on my chips. Repeating. Wait for me boys, I’m coming!!!
