Summer Salsa !

It’s time again for a great summer salad that works well on it’s own or as a side for any summer meal.  Last week I had a two mangoes, an avocado and a red pepper in my fridge and needed to find a recipe that was easy to put together without the usual conveniences of a full kitchen.  After searching for a recipe I discovered a wonderful blogger called “The Pioneer Woman” and adapted her Mango Salsa to include the ingredients I had waiting to use.  This mango salsa works great for dipping with taco chips but be sure to buy the scooper style chips as it frustrated M to have the chips keep breaking when he dipped in.   We also had it as a topper on some wild Alaskan salmon that was flash frozen and yes sent all the way to Florida ! Oh and don’t forget a cold drink !
