I’ve been back from vacation for over a week, and I’m still playing a bit of catch-up.  Yay that I caught up with my Bloglovin’ feed after a few days only to lose control of it again and play catch-up again.  What’s really hard to catch up on, however,  is having recipes “banked” or photographed for the future.  When I got back, I was plum out of them.  I like to have at least one week’s worth of material in “the bank” , especially for times when I’m lacking in creativity.  Do you ever have times where your inspiration has flown south and you don’t even know what you want to make for your blog family?  That’s happened to me recently, but  I bought a juicy pineapple, and luckily, that got the tropical juices flowing. πŸ˜‰

I say it a lot — the simplest things in life are the best, and it’s 100% true.  This salsa hits all the notes — sweet, savory, fresh, and spicy.  It made me very happy with a cold beer and chips, and even happier when I topped my hot dog with it.  And some sriracha on top of that.  Oh, how I love the simple things.

If you’re looking for a little something that’s going to perk up the palate this summer, this is just the thing.  Dinner guests?  It’s your appetizer.  Tacos?  Top ’em with this salsa for a tropical twist.  You name it, and this salsa will add some spicy-sweet freshness to your food.  Isn’t this what summer’s all about?  Yes, yes, and double yes.  Fresh and fun with a kick. πŸ™‚
