Mandarin Orange Salsa

Mandarin Orange Salsa

Salsa with the sweet flavor of Mandarin Orange’s but with the hotness of the Jalapeno. Serve with a salty Tortilla Chip and the taste evens itself out! Very tasty.

I was gifted a large bag of mandarin oranges and after a week of eating mandarin oranges with every meal, I needed to find a different way to eat them. I talked to a friend of mine and she suggested a Mandarin Orange Salsa. A simple fresh salsa with quartered mandarin oranges as the main ingredient.

6 fresh and simple ingredients make up this Mandarin Orange salsa. The end result was a sweet but spicy salsa that paired well with simple tortilla chips. I served this with sandwiches for lunch. This was a perfect pairing for a light lunch. I had a little leftover and it stored well in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

This would be perfect served with baked or grilled fish as a side compliment or even as a topping on a shrimp taco!
