Mango, Pineapple Salsa

I prefer a fresh salsa over jarred any day. I’ve been making this one for “casual entertaining” for years. I used to make it every week when the girls would come over to my old apartment to watch “The Bachelor.” Wine, laughing, gossiping and making fun of all the women making fools of themselves on national television. I love that show! My boyfriend watches with me now, he says he hates it but I think he secretly looks forward to “Monday Bachelor night” too. (Girls come over and watch with me soon!)

*4 Tomatoes *1 Mango *3 Pineapple Spears *1 Garlic clove *1 Small onion *Cilantro *Lime juice *Salt and pepper *Teaspoon sugar

1. Chop tomatoes in quarters, removing the gooey insides (they will turn your salsa to soup). Add tomatoes, garlic, half of a small onion, and cilantro. Pulse in the food processor 6-8 times leaving a rough chop. If you turn it on for more than 15 seconds you will have tomato gazpacho. Pour contents into a separate bowl.

2. Score the mangos, removing the peel. Chop into small chunks along with the pineapple. Toss fruit in with the rest of the salsa. Season with some fresh squeezed lime juice, a sprinkle of salt and a teaspoon of sugar, stir and serve. (great with lime tostitos) 

Have Honey on the scene to catch any dropped chips 🙂
