5 stars from 1 rating of The Best Ever Mango Tomato Salsa

Avocados, mangoes and tomatoes? How can you go wrong?

This quick salsa is perfect for a quick side to a boring meal, a topping for chicken or fish, or even for simply dipping.

We have small get-togethers at our home all the time for just about any reason we can come up with. Superbowl? Of course. Halloween, Easter, Christmas? Why not! Graduation? Absolutely!

We love getting all of our friends in the same house to share good food, good company, and good times! This salsa, along with my Best Ever Pizza Dip, is one of the stars of the show. We love dipping!

Try it out at your next party or even for a themed dinner for you and your special someone! You can thank me later.

This quick dish can be whipped up in just minutes for a healthy snack, a flavorful appetizer, or a great colorful addition to any meal.

Best of all, another use for all of your fresh, homegrown tomatoes! Here are some little known health facts about tomatoes:

"One serving of red, ripe, raw tomatoes (one cup or 150 grams) is a good source of Vitamins A, C, K, folate and potassium. Tomatoes are naturally low in sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. Tomatoes also provide thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, magnesium, phosphorus and copper, all of which are necessary for good health.

On top of that, one serving of tomatoes gives you 2 grams of fiber, which is 7% of the daily recommended amount" (BeliefNet.com).

So many vitamins in such a small serving! Don't pass this up!

      Oh man! I think it would be at on salmon or any other kind of fish!

      I'm really loving the fresh tomato recipes right now. Since I've just started growing my own tomatoes, I'm obsessed. I've always loved tomatoes and now I have a way to truly enjoy them anytime I want here at home.

      Yummy! Will be making this when my tomatoes are ripe!

      This recipe will be great for the hot and humid summers here in Georgia. I'm thinking this would be great on salmon too. What do you think? Hope your week is wonderful~
