Homemade Mango Salsa

Not sure how I only recently found out how much I love mangoes but DAMN better later than never!

This has become one of my go to snacks (thanks mom!) and my other is mango salsa. It absolutely screams summer: bright colors, zesty lime juice and refreshing fruit. YUM YUM YUM.

Shishito Peppers on the Grill

I think I may of found my favorite snack of the summer. Shishito peppers! They are quickly becoming the new cauliflower – making there way onto menus all over restaurants in Toronto. I made them for the first time this weekend for a girls getaway up north.
