I know I'm not alone when I say I love summer. The sunshine, warm weather and (my favorite) fresh fruits and veggies! Sadly, my garden is non-existent this year, but I can still grab plenty of fresh produce at my local farmer's market. Including lots of the ingredients needed for this gem of a recipe!
While you could make this year-round, there's something about fresh tomatoes that livens up the flavor in any salsa recipe. Takes it to a whole new level, in my book.
Just look at all of those colors! It's almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
This is for sure another kid-approved recipe at my house. Even though my kids will all tell you they hate tomatoes, they LOVE this salsa! My 6 year old even discovered she likes red peppers!
The mango, lime and corn give this salsa a sweet flavor - but not overly sweet. It's not spicy at all either, although if you're craving a little zing, I don't see why you couldn't throw a little jalapeño into the mix.
We ate it with chips (which are a treat at our house...maybe that's why my kids were so excited to eat the salsa...), but you could eat it with whatever you like. Not gonna lie - I may have eaten some straight out of the bowl by itself. Yum. :-)
