Pineapple-Mango Salsa

Healthy Living, Recipes, Smart Eating

Have you ever looked at the sodium content of commercially jarred salsa? You might be surprised to find one serving of salsa having as much as 400 mg of sodium. 

Try this refreshing take: pineapple-mango salsa. It will only take minutes to make and you control the amount of added salt. Since this is a fruit salsa, your taste buds will be satisfied with much less sodium. If you seasoned this recipe with ¼ tsp of salt, you could eat half of the 6 cups this recipe makes (that’s a lot of salsa!) and you would still have eaten less sodium than you’d find in most jarred salsas. 

An added benefit from this recipe is the punch of vitamin C the pineapple and mango provide. This recipe is also versatile – not just for chips! – try it as a condiment for your poultry or pork dishes.
