Best Fruit Salsa Ever

I have a recipe to share, it is the best fruit salsa ever, no kidding.

Texas gals know their salsa, and I have been here long enough (30 years) to claim residency.

So come on over to my backyard and let me cook some shrimp on the barbie and serve you, my

friend, the best fruit salsa ever.

Growing up in Idaho, garlic powder and black pepper were the most zesty things that I ever tasted.

But once we crossed the Red River and settled in the southwest, cooking took on an entire

different flair, and I love it.

It is going to have some zing and zest to it, because that's how we do salsa in this home.

Serrano's oh yes, garlic, onions, lime juice...oh yum...

It is fresh, healthy and pretty.

Easy to make, just allow yourself a little prep time.

The table is set, the grill is hot, it is nearly supper time!
