Pineapple Mango Salsa

Have you ever seen the pineapple mango salsa at Whole Foods? In the store near our house, it’s almost always out for sample in the produce aisle and we almost always make sure we stop for a bit. We never bought it, though, until I decided that I needed a treat before starting Eat to Live.

I grabbed it out of the bag as soon as I got home, called John into the kitchen and we eagerly dug in with our tortilla chips. Ten minutes later, we had finished the half cup of salsa off and were somewhat disappointed that $4.76 of salsa had gone that quickly. I decided that I needed to make this myself.

This weekend I found some ripe mangoes at Target and whipped this up for a quick appetizer for us and our houseguests. Everyone loved the salsa and the salsa loved my pocketbook.

    Hi MF just wanted to thank you for your lovely site. I read your post about your new diet this summer and wanted to let you know that Tofutti products work as good dairy substitutes for many recipes. My son has been diagnosed with 12 food allergies and counting….so we are always on the look out for new recipes.

    On another note, you have my sympathy, my husband plays WOW too. You can get a response out of yours? I usually have to stand in between mine and the game to get a head nod. :)

    I’ve been working on gluten free fried fish sticks….my husband loves them but I haven’t got the batter just right yet. Any thoughts? (Yes I realize this is not the healthiest dish but it’s a childhood favorite of my husbands and to bring him to the otherside, the gluten free side, I figure I got get a better lure.)

    Thanks-Summer W
