Oh man…this salsa. This salsa is so good. It’s so good that I’m actually nervous about sharing this recipe with you guys. It’s practically a state secret. The funny part is that the recipe is actually pretty basic — no chunks of mango or even a few corn kernels in this baby. This salsa is classic. In the best way possible. One taste of this? And you’ll never choose store-bought again.
My mom used to make this salsa all the time when I was growing up. Camping? Family gatherings? Cookouts? Chilling by the pool? This salsa was there for it all. I used to beg her to make it even more often than she did, because it’s seriously THAT GOOD.
But now that I’m an adult and living by myself, it’s been a really long time since I’ve actually had any. So when a craving hit last night, I asked my mom for the recipe and went to work whipping up a batch immediately. And, oh my god, it was such a good idea.
