Mango-Jalapeno Salsa

Mango Jalapeno Salsa @ NancyCAre you staying cool during the hot weather we’ve been having? This is the time of year when I probably eat the most fruit. I love all kinds of fruit and that’s what I like about this Mango-Jalapeno Salsa–there’s a nice variety of fruit—mango, pineapple, and apple—–mixed in with some diced tomato and red bell pepper. It’s a little on the spicy side, so use half the amount of jalapeno and ginger if you want a milder salsa. Overall, I think this is a great, healthy mix of naturally sweet and savory flavors!

Speaking of healthy, this recipe is from The Daniel Plan Cookbook by Pastor Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Dr. Mark Hyman, which was published a few years ago. The book shares about how eating real, whole foods can help reverse chronic disease, aid in weight loss, and even optimize brain health. It’s a bonus when the food you eat tastes great and is really good for you!

This Mango-Jalapeno Salsa salsa goes well with blue corn tortilla chips, or served as part of a meal with chicken or fish. It’s quick and easy to make, too!

    Second, some interesting facts about “Green Pepper” Bumps, some have 3 and some have 4. What is the significance and do both peppers taste same?

    Also, I am co-hosting this week’s FIESTA FRIDAY #287 and will be visiting and commenting on your posts as the official Fiesta Friday representative and features selector.
