Cinco de Mayo is this Sunday! And in the interest of continuing on the fun pinning spree from yesterday, I thought I’d share some of my top Cinco pins along with a new recipe.
Tropical Mango Salsa
Ingredients – 4 champagne mangoes
– 1 red bell pepper
– 1/2 red onion
– 1 jalapeno pepper; with or without ribs depending on how spicy you like it!
– 2 cloves garlic
– 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
– Salt & pepper to taste
Directions Dice the mangoes, bell pepper, and onion into 1/2″ pieces and finely mince the jalapeno and garlic. Add the white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper and stir gently.
You can eat this right away or let it sit for about 15 minutes to let the flavors combine. I love easy recipes 🙂
I have a new-found appreciation for pineapple and have been putting it in everything! With all of the fresh fruit coming into season now, I’ve been wanting to incorporate it more into our meals, rather than just snacks and a summer salsa was just the way to do that.
Ingredients 1 Avocado, diced
1 cup pineapple, diced
1 cup strawberries, sliced
2 Kiwis, diced
Directions Dice up fruits and veggies into approximately 1/2″ pieces and throw everything into a bowl. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, and carefully stir everything so as to not break up pieces.
It’s that simple! My favorite way of eating this salsa is piled on top of the Crispy Almond Coconut Chicken wrapped up in a corn tortilla. It’s a nice, light and refreshing summer dinner. Top it off with a citrus margarita spritzer and you’re set! And just in time for Cinco de Mayo 😉
Do you have any big food/drink plans for Cinco de Mayo?
