Summer has arrived and with summer comes hot sunny days filled with vacations and weekend Bar-b-ques spent with friends and family. Which brings up a very crucial question, What to bring? How about Mango salsa?

Or perhaps you’re poolside and you want to provide a healthy but satisfying snack everyone can enjoy…kiddos and adults alike. Repeat after me, Mango Salsa. It’s refreshingly sweet, crunchy, bright, and delicious.

Not only does this make the best dip, it also serves as a fresh topping on fish, chicken, eggs or just about anything. Have you ever seen the commercial where the caveman asked for “duck with the mango salsa”? Going too far? Okay, moving on.

If the flavor this salsa brings and the satiety it offers is not enough, maybe the fact that all the ingredients it possesses are nutrient dense and rich with Vitamin C, Folate, Potassium, Iron, Vitamin B, and Glutathione. Gluta-what? Glutathione! The mother of all antioxidants, a necessary molecule needed to stay healthy and prevent aging, cancer and disease. And just to impress you further, all these true super food ingredients which make-up this recipe are high in tryptophan (a precursor to Serotonin).
