Pineapple Mango Salsa (SRC)
It's Secret Recipe Club time! I know it can't just be me, but the last Monday of the month seems to come around so quickly! Each month around 120 bloggers are assigned a blog in secret to peruse and choose a recipe to make. Today is Group D's turn to reveal their assigned blog and recipe.
This month I was thrilled to be assigned Fantastical Sharing of Recipes by Sarah who happens to be the fearless leader of the Secret Recipe Club. Sarah is married to Nick and they have 3 beautiful children, 2 cats and a dog. Definitely a full house! She is also a serious recipe hoarder and her blog is packed full of delicious sounding, family-friendly comfort food.
I liked the sound of the Atomic Hashbrowns but the kids aren't keen on spicy food so the Chubby Hubby Potatoes would be more their thing, though I've bookmarked both to try later. I was also really tempted by the 40 Clove Garlic Chicken and Classic Cabbage Rolls. But it is summer here after all and I just couldn't face any hot food so I started looking for something cool.
It has been stinking hot here the past few weeks. We've had a couple of 36 degree days (around 96 F) and it is just miserable being in the kitchen when it's that hot. So many times I've planned my meals for the week and then not made any of it because none of us felt like eating much. BUT not this time.
These barbecued pork chops topped with pineapple mango salsa were calling everyone's name. Is there anything more summery than this? (apologies to anyone knee-deep in snow right now).
Succulent pork was the perfect pairing for this light, fresh salsa. The kids loved having fruit for dinner and miracle of miracles, Mr 5 actually tried some pork! This is the kid that won't touch any meat except salami.
Thank you Sarah for such a simple but delicious recipe. This is one of our new family favourites.
