Why this Salsa is Special

This Tropical Salsa is more of a side dish than a dip. It has all the flavors of sweet and spicy and can be presented with your barbecued steaks or hamburgers. It makes a beautiful presentation of different colors that appeal to the eye. You can add a few chopped strawberries if you like.

It can also be just a great weekend appetizer. You can cheat by buying the fruits and veggies already chopped to save time. But you will save money by chopping it all yourself.
