It’s spring! Which means there are so many fresh fruits at the supermarket. One of my favorite combinations of fruits is strawberry and mango. It’s so tropical, isn’t it? The vibrant colors remind me of the sunset during a warm summer day. This salsa is not only pretty in color, it’s very tasty too. Filled with chunks of strawberries and mangoes, basil and mint, the juice of one lime, honey, and a little bit of red crushed peppers, it is an explosion of flavors on your taste buds! Once you try it, you won’t want to stop eating.

This refreshing salsa is so easy to make with only several ingredients. The hardest part will be waiting for the salsa to finish chilling in the fridge!

First, dice the strawberries and mangoes into bite size pieces. Place them into a medium sized bowl.

Cut the basil and the mint into strips. Or you can roughly tear them apart.

Add the chopped mint and basil into the bowl of strawberries and mangoes.

Add in honey, lime juice, and crushed red peppers. If you prefer a non-spicy salsa, you can just omit the crushed red pepper. Or you can add less for a mild version. Mix the ingredients.

Place the bowl into the fridge and allow it to chill and marinade for about a half hour. The flavors will be much bolder once it’s allowed to sit for awhile.

    Wow! You are my hero! You’ve posted six additional times since this post which is the one I wanted to comment on but took forever to do so! I really wanted to comment on this recipe and thank you, thank you, thank you (!!!) for not adding red onions to it. Red onion is like a song that is played on the radio so much that I’ve become sick of it, don’t you think? it’s overexposed! This salsa looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it with some fresh snapper! Your photography is absolutely lovely, too, by the way. Happy cooking!

    Pretty much EVERYTHING on here looks amazing, but this has to be my favorite! I’m a huge fan of both mangoes and strawberries, and while I’ve made salsas of each, I’ve never combined them together. Forget using it as salsa; I’ll just eat it as breakfast, lunch and dinner! 🙂
