You guys, I am just in love with strawberry season. In case you couldn’t tell from all my strawberry–themed posts, this strawberry mango salsa is reaching right into my strawberry-loving brain and hitting the YUM button repeatedly.
That’s a thing, right? I mean, you guys all have a certain dish that just hits the sweet spot every.single.time you have it?
What I really love about this strawberry mango salsa is that you’ve got sweet and savory together, as well as that amazing kick of heat from habañero peppers. Strawberries and habañero peppers go hand-in-hand, just like mangoes, so I couldn’t possibly use anything else.
I will always always always recommend starting with just a few diced slivers of the habañero, because it packs so much heat, it can easily overwhelm those who have a lower tolerance to the heat (like me, I am such a wimp, yo). So, start with less and work your way up, because the first batch almost killed my husband, and he is all about that bass. I mean, heat.
Just toss all those deliciously diced bits of Heaven in a bowl with a little salt, pepper, garlic, and lime juice and get ready to empty that bag of tortilla chips, because you are not gonna want to stop noshing on this superb snack!
