Tropical Bean Salad

Tropical Bean Salad

It's salsa season, and this is the yummiest, not to mention most beautiful, fruit salsas I've ever tried.  Not too sweet, with just the right amount of juice to substance and fruit to zing ratio - it can be served on it's own as a salad, as part of a taco bar or with chips as a salsa.  This colorful salad is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next summer potluck or BBQ!

Thanks to Boyfriend's cousins Gary and Margo in Albuquerque for this fantastic recipe!
