It’s nearly impossible to pick your favorite thing about summer. How can you choose between long sunny days, running through the sprinkler, and bottomless glasses of lemonade? I’m adding one more thing to your favorite-things-about-summer list: this Strawberry Mango Salsa from TK member Danae. Strawberries are in season now, so head to your local farmers market and make this for your next shindig. Or just because.

And if you’re anything like me and loaded up on four pounds of strawberries in one trip, then this is the perfect way to use them up!

Truth be told, I reached the point where I just started eating this with a spoon. You’re not judging, right? Okay, good. Whew.

Hull and dice your strawberries into small chunks and pour into a large bowl.

Next, we have the mango. I prefer to cut the mango away from the pit with the skin on. Trying to cut a peeled mango away from the pit always leads to a slippery mess, and I don’t want to run the risk of cutting myself when the mango goes flying! Once the mango is cut away from the pit, I use a spoon to shimmy the meat away from the skin.

Then dice it up into small chunks and add it to the bowl along with the strawberries.

Following the mango, dice a red onion and add it into the mix.

Every salsa needs a dash of fresh lime juice, so add that in.

If you’re up for a spicy kick, Danae added in some cayenne pepper to the mix. Good move.

Then the honey!

And what salsa would be complete without a boatload of cilantro? Toss that in there, too.

Give the whole batch one final mix to combine, and voila! If you’re patient enough to let this sit and develop more flavor, it will be even better. But I understand if you’re not and feel compelled to dig in right away. It’s so fresh it can’t be ignored.

Be sure to check out Danae’s TK recipe box and her site Recipe Runner for more home-cooked goodness. Next on my must-make list is this Tomato Basil Feta Pizza. Just try and say no to that!

I love how customizable salsa is. Especially with fruits!! I made one with Kiwi not too long ago and it was incredible. Definitely gonna try with mango but because strawberries aren’t so good here, we’ll toss in an avocado and some cherry tomatoes. Beautiful colours anticipated!
