Jill's Fresh Cut Mango Salsa

Print Friendly and PDF

Every year The Hubby and I go to our friend Jill's family's cabin for a weekend at the lake, and every year I request that Jill make her mango salsa while we're there.  And every year she does.  And this is it.

And this is her making the salsa.




It is her specialty.  Maybe she has other things that she makes that she thinks are her specialty, but to me this is it.  It's one of the things that I really look forward to about going to her cabin.  Besides swimming in the lake and drinking slushy drinks and going out on the boat and spending late nights around the campfire laughing and listening to music.  All of these things can actually be done while eating mango salsa too, come to think of it.

Jill is just one of those cool chicks.  

She does a wicked Dane Cook impersonation and stand-up routine, she can catch and clean a fish and drive a boat, and she makes me laugh so hard, which is one of the main characteristics that I look for in a friend.  


Along with amazing salsa-making ability, I guess. 

I met Jill through The Hubby because they used to work together and play on the same softball team.  And then I stole her from him.
That's right Hubby, you take a picture of me and my friend Jill.  And you like it!
Sometimes when I am eating the salsa I forget that it's not all just for me, and that I have to share it with others.  I hope you feel the same way!

Also a bird landed on my hand.
