I’ll choose a homemade salsa over a store bought one any day! Not only do they taste better because the ingredients are fresh, but they are also super easy to whip up! One of my favorite ingredients to add to salsa is fresh mango! Mango has an incredible way of blending perfectly with both sweet and savory dishes, plus you’ll get 100% of your daily Vitamin C from just one cup. Enjoy this Strawberry Mango Salsa with chips or paired with honey glazed chicken and jasmine rice! The perfect summer dish!
