Today's Round Up: South of the Border

Memorial Day is just around the corner which means summer is on it's way! Spring and the arrival of summer make me crave light, colorful, zingy foods. If you're looking for something to make for a gathering or to devour on your own, try this mango salsa. My taste buds are buzzing just thinking about it. It is fabulous as an appetizer with chips or crostini. It is also perfect to pair with grilled chicken, steak or fish. Enjoy the onset of summer with some of this delicious mango salsa.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

* 1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
* 1 avocado, diced
* 4 medium tomatoes, diced (I remove the juices and seeds before dicing)
* 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
* 1/2 Cup cilantro or parsley (which ever you prefer)
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
* 1/4 Cup chopped red onion
* 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine the mango, avocado, tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, and garlic. Stir in the salt, lime juice, red onion, and olive oil. To blend the flavors, refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.
