I love mango salsa. Pineapple salsa. Chipotle salsa. Peach salsa. Oh, and a personal fav, salsa music! Have you ever danced the salsa? One word of advice: You can skip the gym workout on said day of dancing.
Salsa dancing works every body part and muscle in your body…including some you never even knew existed. I’ve only done it a couple of times and it can be quite embarrassing if you’re at a club with dancers that salsa like pros. They get all sweaty and strut around like Travolta, only cooler. And they look so fantastic doing it. Why are they all so good looking? It’s like you have to be hot to salsa dance…you know I’m right.
I suggest a light cocktail before engaging in such a dance. It will loosen you up a bit, and if you’re anything like me, help you find the beat. I’m so jealous of great dancers. I watch Dancing With The Stars and think, really? If Kirstie Alley can hoof it, then I should be able to pull it off too. No such luck. I suck at it. And I admit it. I love watching it though. There is such grace in any kind of dance. And isn’t it cool when they bite it? Ha! I know its just wrong to say that out loud but It helps remind me that they’re human and not life-size Gumbies.
My favorite salsas to get your tastebuds dancing…avocado/tomato salsa (left) and mango-pineapple salsa.
So anyway, since I can’t salsa dance, I figured I could make salsa. Here are a couple of my favs. They go with most anything. The Avocado-Tomato Salsa is good with fajitas, tacos, or anything spicy. The Mango-Pineapple Salsa is perfect for pork or seafood.
I also included the recipe for the Paleo Spicy Shrimp Wraps. We made these shrimp wraps with the mango/pineapple salsa last night and it rocked!
