mango wasabi salsa

mango wasabi salsa | my skinny sweet tooth

One of my favorite restaurants here in Louisville is “Dragon Kings Daughter”. Consider it a Mexican & Japanese fusion. When we dine here, I always order their wasabi salsa. It is to die for. The menu description seemed easy enough, so I knew I had to try and recreate it at home. So, that I did 🙂  It’s refreshing and complex yet has a surprising note from the wasabi. The flavors blend so well, especially when chilled for an hour (thats when the magic happens!). Plus, instead of just using it to dip tortillas into, it would be great on top of chicken, fish tacos, or scrambled eggs. (Just a few ideas 😉 )

In honor of Memorial Day, this would be a great addition to take to all those cook outs and pot lucks. Something different. Something familiar. Something DELICIOUS.

*I would love to say that each serving is 1pp, with avocado being the only ingredient worth any actual point value. However, when plugging everything into the recipe builder, it comes to 3pp per 1/2C(ish) serving. Still worth it!! So depending on how you calculate, enjoy it for 1pp or 3pp … I won’t tell 😉 In my eyes, this salsa is healthy and full of good-for-you stuff.
