Salsa Sunday: Orange Mango Salsa

Its a mothers day salsa special today! This is for all the women in the world who are mothers, sisters, aunts, best friends, a kind stranger, mentor and so much more. Thank you to all the women in the world who have been one of these things. These ripples of love affect many throughout the world.

(OK...its for you men too)

This salsa was inspired by two things: Sunday brunch and farmers markets.

Sunday brunch reminds some of fresh squeezed orange juice or mimosas; and an impressive spread of heavy two light foods to pile your plate with. It is usually for a large gathering of people to enjoy the many eats and to catch up with one another.

So I was reading the paper...looking over the different restaurants and their mothers day brunch menus; which lead to a visit to the farmers market later in the week where I picked up these pretty lady's...

I also had these mangoes sitting on the counter... all basically rolled on from there!

After making this there were some optional ingredients I would recommend to enhance the salsa even more.

They are: Lime juice and diced jalapeno. Its adds a little tart to the very sweet salsa and a little spice. Sweet and spicy are a good combo.

Other than that...its simplicity is what makes this a great salsa for a Sunday brunch.

So give it a try. Its great on a chip! I bet it would be good on some fish as well. YUM!
