Who doesn’t love barbecue? Summer is officially here when the grill fires up, the coals glow and the sweet spicy smell of caramelizing sauce fills the air. But what happens when you tire of the standard burger and hot dogs, when you want to create a gourmet recipe and take your grilling to the next level.
Our Mango Salsa is a quick, easy and versatile condiment that pairs well with a variety of meats and seafoods fresh from the grill. Try it on lightly seared tuna steaks, cedar plank salmon (this is the west coast after all) and my personal favourite– pork loin.
Alternatively, this tropical fruit salsa also makes a fabulous appetizer with grilled pita chips, roasted garlic and chevre.
With so many variations this recipe is guaranteed to become a staple at any backyard BBQ or picnic.
