I've been traveling a lot this month and while I'm visiting friends and family here in New Jersey, I almost always make mango salsa to bring to a get-together. This recipe is always a crowd pleaser and I was psyched to make and enjoy it one day before I started The 21-Day Sugar Detox!
Salsa is a fantastic addition to loads of dishes including grilled meats, seafood and salads. This one is great if you're looking for a variation from a standard tomato salsa if you don't tolerate nightshades well – just exclude the tomatoes and peppers.
