Avocado, Tomato, and Mango Salsa


When Friday rolls around at 3 pm, most people are  just trying to get through the next couple hours to start their weekend.  I am sitting there instead thinking about all the amazing things that I want to make over the weekend and how I can incorporate them into our weekend plans.  This weekend is no exception.  We are going to our first Symphony on the Prairie  tomorrow night!  This is something the hubby and I absolutely love going to, and this time we are going with some good friends so I can make a larger amount of food then normal.  This made my mind race with recipes, and I was sitting at work reeling to get home so I could start my menu items for tomorrow.  I decided on a Mexican theme for the evening.  Our appetizer is going to be this delicious salsa. I have been in love with this salsa since the first time my mother-in-law made it for us.  Trust me once you make it, you will end up eating it with a spoon and forgetting about tortilla chips.
