Strawberry Basil Mango Salsa

April 30, 2013

Strawbery mango 22

One of my favorite fruit combinations is strawberry and mango.

I love adding them to lemonade to balance out the tartness of the lemon juice.  Strawberry mango paletas are a wonderful summer treat and smoothies accented by these two fruits are always my top choice.

Salsas are a staple in my home and I thought it was time for my pico de gallo to get a revamp with this fruit combination.  It’s a great topper for fish tacos and savory chicken tostadas.

Not a fan of heat?  This salsa can double as a salad if you omit the chile serrano and just drizzle some honey on top.  My son loves it as an afterschool treat or an addition to his creamy oatmeal and yogurt.
