More for when it’s too hot to Cook

I hope all of you are doing well and surviving this next round of heat.  Did you try any of the recipes I posted last time?  I made the  watermelon granita and it was so amazing! It took a bit longer than the 2.5 hours to freeze to the right consistency, but it was well worth the wait.   It is a perfect treat for a hot afternoon!

Salads are great for hot summer days as well.  Have you made a 7-layer salad?  Using frozen peas as one of the layers makes it taste wonderful!

Here is a recipe for Mango Salsa from my friend Lori.  She found it on Pinterest as part of a recipe for Baja fish tacos. She enjoys serving it to her family on its own with chips.

Mango Salsa

2 large ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and chopped

1/4 c. minced red bell pepper

1 tbsp. lime juice

1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

2 green onions, sliced (green tops only) or 1/4 c. finely chopped purple onions

1 small jalapeno pepper with stem, seeds, and membrane removed

Stir all ingredients together. Refrigerate. Serve with chips!
