Today is November 2nd, 2014 and it feels like the first “cold” day in Arizona since the beginning of fall. By cold, I mean 65 degrees F. Yes, I know, I’m a total whimp when it comes to the cold, which is probably why it’s best that I stay in Arizona. Time to break out the hoodies from the back of my closet. 😛
I don’t know about you, but I love taking out my winter clothes from hibernation. Each year, I typically store my winter clothes in suitcases and bags at the start of spring because I know I won’t be using them for a while. When I take them back out again, I’m always pleasantly surprised to see certain items that I had forgotten I had. It’s almost like Christmas! Almost. 🙂 So while I’m not a fan of the winter cold, I do look forward to wearing certain winter outfits again. Am I weird or have you experienced this too?
Today’s post is one of my favorite recipes. Mango salsa. It’s a really simple recipe with just a few ingredients:
1 Semi-firm but ripe mango (too soft/overripe mangos don’t turn out too well)
1/2 Red or white onion
1/4 cup cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon or 2 limes
1 avocado (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
Just chop and mix!
One thing I love most about this salsa is that is goes well with SO many dishes. Here’s one version I made with avocado, on top of pan seared salmon.
Personally, my favorite fish to top with this salsa is grilled mahi mahi. But it also tastes phenomenal on chicken, and on virtually any salad. I just love the combination of sweet and tangy.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make some hot steamy mint tea.
