Mango Strawberry Salsa

It’s summer!  Instead of heating up the house,  most of my cooking is done on the grill!  I am always looking for different ways to dress up my grilled meat.  This salsa is very easy, colorful, tasty and a perfect topping for your grilled chicken, fish or pork.  Ideal for a summer BBQ when company comes over.  Another bonus…my kids loved it!

Look to your veggie garden and see what you can harvest!  I was able to harvest my first banana pepper today, which was perfect timing since this recipe calls for it.  You could substitute hotter peppers if you would like to spice things up a bit!  But, banana peppers were perfect and kid friendly!

Recipe

1 Mango – diced

1/4 C green onion – chopped

2 TB brown sugar

1 small banana pepper

1/2 tsp. lime zest

1 TB lime juice

1/8 tsp. salt

pepper to taste

3/4 C strawberries – diced

Combine half of the diced mango, green onions, brown sugar, pepper, lime zest, lime juice and salt in a small saucepan.  Heat over low heat for about 10 minutes.  Removed from heat and add the rest of the ingredients.  Serve immediately over your meat or fish.  This recipe made enough to top 6 small chicken breasts.
