The other day, we received a box of organic produce from Farm Fresh to You that was filled with strawberries and mangoes. I am not a huge fan of mangoes, but I’ve seen numerous strawberry-mango salsa recipes floating around in the blogosphere that had piqued my interest. The recipes were essentially the same save for one thing. One recipe said to use cilantro and another said to use mint. I could see both tasting great, so I divided the recipe in half and made batches of each. We had friends over for dinner so I let them be the taste testers to decide the ultimate winner.
And the winner was….
Wait. You guess. Which do you think it was? No fair looking ahead and cheating!
Okay, I’ll tell you now.
Far and away, our guests (who love cilantro) chose the mint salsa. We served it over spicy pork chops and then ate the rest of the salsa as a sort of fruit salad. It was *that* good.
strawberry mango salsa
adapted from twopeacesandtheirpod.com
1 cup diced strawberries
1 medium mango, peeled, pitted, and diced
1-2 tbsp diced red onion (the second time I made this, I added too much onion and ruined the salsa… start with a little and add more if you think it needs it)
1 tbsp diced jalapeno
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
salt, to taste
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes for flavors to blend. Serve over spicy grilled pork, chicken, or fish.
