After testing a number of fruit salsas, this one is the best. It holds up well for summer parties, is refreshing, balances spiciness, and goes well on fish, poultry, pork, and even vegetarian dishes.Print
Tropical Fruit and Vanilla Salsa
2 mangoes, diced
2 cups pineapple, diced
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
½ cup green onion, minced
2–3 fresh chiles of your choice (for mild I suggest Anaheim; for hot, jalapeno, serrano, or padron. You can also add red pepper flakes for more heat.
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons agave, honey or dark brown sugar, or to taste
juice of 1–2 limes
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract
In a medium-sized bowl, combine fruits with the bell pepper and green onion. Remove seeds and veins from chiles and mince. Add to fruit mixture along with the agave, honey or brown sugar and chopped cilantro. Add salt, vanilla and lime juice. Taste and adjust seasonings.
