Traditional, Creamy and Mango Salsa

This gray and dreary day in Minneapolis has me craving all things bright and cheery. Food can be so pretty. Don’t you love when your food has all different colors and textures in it? Food is art. And salsa is so pretty!

I’ve come up with 3 different salsas: traditional, creamy and mango. Traditional salsa is pretty standard but SO good with fresh ingredients! Add more jalapeno if you likey da spicy. The creamy salsa is my favorite! It uses greek yogurt to make it smooth and creamy. All the other flavors take over the yogurt flavor so it’s awesome. Added bonus: extra protein! Mango salsa is a sweeter salsa. Substitute mango for strawberries if you wish!

I love making these for get-togethers. The colors mixed together are so pretty and salsa is ALWAYS a hit. These are pretty mild but you can add more jalapeno if necessary. Pair with tortilla chips, add to tacos or my personal favorite, pair with a margarita or two! :)
