Lets start with half a diced red onion…

To this add half a diced cucumber and one diced red bell pepper.

Now throw in some mango…

A fresh seeded jalapeno pepper…

Half a can of drained black beans, and a handfull of chopped cilantro.

Now squeeze the heck out of a lime into your bowl of fruit and veggies…

And season your salsa with a bit of salt and fresh pepper.

And now you have a very yummy appetizer….

A super pretty salad….

Or a quick, colorful, and healthy weeknight chicken dinner to whip up after soccer practice. Look at that, three different dishes from one little salsa!

Go ahead life give us your best shot, we’ll know how to work with it!
