Eddie’s First Recipe On A Dash Of Meg!

by Meg on March 13, 2014

I think spring is finally here, guys! :D

Yesterday, Eddie and I made turkey burgers and grilled them on the barbecue outside! It was wonderful. Nothing tastes more like spring-time than food off of the grill!

Our turkey burgers were simple; ground turkey, fresh garlic, red onion, freshly ground black pepper, and fresh parsley, but Eddie jazzed them up with a homemade mango salsa!

Typically, I’m not a fan of fruit salsas. For some reason fruit and onions just don’t make my tastebuds happy, but this salsa was something else and made me reconsider my previously mentioned feelings of fruit salsas.

Perhaps it’s because Eddie made it? That might have something to do with it, but even if the love of my life had nothing to do with the creation of this mango salsa I’m sure I’d still love it. It was that good. And since it was that good, it would be wrong of me to take credit and share his recipe on my own. So, take it away, Eddie!

Last night I thought I’d show off my skills to Meg and her parents, so I through together a fresh mango salsa that requires no cooking.

I hope you enjoy my first recipe on the blog! Maybe Meg will allow me to come back again some time soon ;)

Try adding jalapeno pepper jelly to the mango salsa. It takes it to a whole other level!
