Beach Trip Tradition: Mango Salsa
It's starting to cool off and Fall is officially upon us which means this is my favorite time of year to head to the beach! The crowds are gone, the prices are lower, and the weather is usually perfect. It is my own personal tradition to make my "famous" Mango Salsa every single time I hit the Gulf Coast with friends or family. This recipe is absolutely dynamite with any kind of seafood but you could also pair it with chicken or steak. During our annual family beach trip, each family is responsible for preparing one meal for the whole crowd. You better believe I make grilled fish tacos topped with this salsa on my night to cook and it is ALWAYS a hit! If there are leftovers, the salsa is perfect with tortilla chips or even spooned over a breakfast omelet.
