Healthy Salsa Recipe
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced finely in small squares
- 2 cup mangoes diced finely in small squares
- 2 cup pineapple diced finely in small squares
- 1 cup onion minced
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons cilantro chopped finely
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoon jalapeño seeds removed, diced finely
- Chop all ingredients finely
- In a bowl mix together all ingredients + toss until thoroughly combined.
- Serve with chips or over chicken/fish.
- Note: This salsa is best if left in the fridge for 1-2 hours for the flavors to meld together, but it’s also fine to eat as is!
- Make sure to cut in small pieces – You need small pieces to be able to scoop this up with chips! Try to dice your fruits/veggies in small tiny squares.
- Allow the salsa to sit before serving– This salsa is fine to eat as soon as you make it, but it’s even better if you let it sit for about an hour in the fridge + allow the flavors to meld together!
- Wash your hands thoroughly after making it-Especially after cutting the jalapeño! It seems like a silly thing to note, but you have to be careful when cooking with them!
