Pineapple Mango Salsa Recipe

Often, our favorite foods are because of a happy and positive experience we have had with a meal. Whether is is the comfort of your mama's dinners, an amazing experience at a restaurant, or a dish from a fun holiday gathering our favorite foods are often traced back

to happy memories.  I have had MANY amazing meals over the years but I can count on ONE hand my most memorable meals of all time.  Recently I ate a dish while on vacation with my family that will be added to my short list of all time favorites.

When my husband and chose a restaurant on our last night of vacation we had no idea what to expect but with an open mind ordered what sounded like a unique and tasty nachos appetizer served with crab meat, queso cheese and topped with  a spicy and sweet pineapple mango salsa!  It was an out of this world dish that I will not soon forget and IMMEDIATELY knew I wanted to recreate this salsa at home!

Since that first bite in the restaurant my mind began spinning with ideas on how to fit this fresh salsa into a healthy and delicious lunch or dinner meal. Chicken? Tacos? Fish? Scallops? Pork Chops? or simply served with organic tortilla chips on a hot summer day with a glass of champagne sangria? All sound delicious and all WILL be made at some point in my kitchen now that I have this salsa in my arsenal of go tos!    

As soon as I combined these ingredients in my kitchen I knew I had a winner!  I dug my spoon into the bowl and with one heaping mouthfull knew I needed to share this awesome salsa.  

Give it a try and serve it any way you like! Or eat it straight out of the bowl.  No judgment here! Not only is it delicious but healthy as well!  Bonus!
