Summer Recipes: Strawberry Mango Salsa

By July 21, 2008Recipes

This is SUPER simple and a fantastic way to end a meal, sitting outside under the stars on a warm summer night!  Enjoy!

DESSERT: Strawberry Mango Salsa
serves 6 plus leftovers to store
carton of red, ripe strawberries
one perfectly ripe mango
fresh mint
Homemade style vanilla ice cream (my personal favorite is Breyer’s Homestyle Double Churned Vanilla)

1. Finely chop strawberries & mango.  Mix in small bowl.  Chill for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to meld.
2. To serve, scoop vanilla ice cream into serving dishes.  Add 2-3 spoonfuls of salsa on top.  Garnish with mint sprig.

    This sounds yummy and very similiar to a recipe that I have. The recipe that I have inclues kiwi and some apples too and then you serve it with tortillas toasted in the oven with cinnamon and suger. Then you break up the toated tortillas and serve them like sweet chips. It’s delicious!

    This looks amazing and so easy and I am sure so tasty. I have always wanted to know how to use mangos, don’t they have a pit? Do you just cut into it and use what you want? Thank you for sharing. I will have to try it.

    The mango is native to India where there are beautiful stories in which the handle is the protagonist. A wounded Chinese to India and took the mango to China. Another scout took him to Europe where it became very popular. After the Portuguese took the mango from India and took him to Africa and Brazil. And not going to believe, but Latin America and Florida to handle did not come until the 19th century.
