Mango Salsa

This delicious Mango Salsa recipe includes one of my favorite ingredients: avocado.

mango salsa recipeAugust?!  Seriously?

At this house we are trying desperately to hold on to those last few weeks of summer as long as we can.  How do we do that, you might ask?  Mostly with family reunions, and afternoons with friends, and late night movies.  But also… with fruit.

Most fruits are summery, and eating them feels summery or beachy.

I really wish I could avoid getting ready for the school year, but I’ve learned from past experience that procrastination in this area brings nothing but sadness.  Sadness and empty store shelves.  This year, I made myself a check list.

Mango Salsa recipes

  • Register kids for classes… check.
  • Pay for school registration… next week.
  • Purchase school clothes… check.
  • Purchase school shoes… next week.
  • Stock up on paper, pencils, binders, and other supplies… check.
  • Help kids organize backpacks and binders… next week.

The list goes on, but it’s pretty much all like that.  I’ve done some of it, and I’m putting off the parts that are, well… off-putting.  Like paying for SIZE TWELVE shoes that probably will not last 9 months.

Calgon, take me away!

I’m counting on this summer salsa to transport me back to a time when I didn’t have to think about school, and scheduling, and chores.  There was just sun and afternoon naps.

I absolutely love this combination of mango and avocado.  The jalapeno gives it a little bite, and the lime juice sweetens everything just a touch.  It’s the perfect summer snack!

Chunky Guacamole and Fresh Corn Chips

A recipe for a fresh and chunky guacamole and corn chips.

Saturdays were made for snacking.  And so was guacamole.  I didn’t come to love guacamole until later in life.  I was influenced in this by my brother, who spent some time in South America and came home with a love affair with avocados.  He later married a woman who is from Mexico, which is somewhat fortunate for me, because it means I get to use their incredibly delicious and authentic Mexican guacamole recipe.  I’ve been eating it almost every day lately, after my doctor suggested I eat more avocados.

Best. Prescription. Ever.
