Sweet and slightly sour with just a hint of spicy, this salsa will be a hit at any party. Bursting with so many flavors, it is a delicious dip with any chips.
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.
