Summer Salsa

Today’s the first official day of the summer!  And 26 days until our wedding!  Last weekend I went up north to a cottage for my stagette with 10 of the coolest girls I know.  I laughed so much my cheeks and stomach hurt.  A huge thank you to Meg for organizing it all!  

This here is a delicious salsa Beth made.  I’ve tried it once before on a different cottage trip and I was secretly hoping she would make it again, and my wish came true!  It’s such a nice fresh tasting snack when you’re out in the sun all day, and so simple to make. 

For the salsa:

1 Mango, cubed
1/2 of papaya, cubed
1 Jalapeno, chopped
1/4 of a red onion
1/2 can of black beans
Juice from 1 lime
Cayenne and salt to taste
1 Tbs of cilantro (optional)

Just mix it all together and enjoy with your favourite nachos. 

We also had some amazing muffins baked by Meg that I still have to get the recipe for.  If I remember correctly they were banana, chocolate with espresso and the other was blueberry, orange and almond.  That was our breakfast the first morning with fresh fruit.  Doesn’t that sound scrumptious?  I have to say we ate pretty well.


    also this salsa looks delicious. i'm going to make it tomorrow.
