Gettn' Ready for summer



For Sunday Savor, I
have two really simple
recipes, they are both
perfect for Summer!
Yes, Summer will arrive
sometime for those of
us still dealing with cool/
wet temps.





Mango-Raspberry Salsa
From: Hy-Vee Grocery
Kitchen 

2 mangos, diced
2 pints fresh red
raspberries
1/2 c finely diced
red onion
1 T chopped cilantro
Juice of a 1/4 lime
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Zest of 1/2 orange
1/4 tsp cayenne
pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
Salt to taste

Combine all ingred-
ients in a large
bowl and toss.






Ice Cream Chocolate
Shell
From: Midwest Living
Makes 21 servings

1 11 or 12 ounce pack-
age of  baking pieces
(Flavor of your choice)
1/4 C coconut oil or
vegetable oil *

Place ingredients in a
medium microwave
safe bowl: stir. Cook on
50% power (medium)
for 1 minute; stir.
Continue to cook
at 30
second intervals, stirring
after each, until almost
melted. Remove and stir
until completely melted.
Pour over ice-cream;
allow to harden 30-60
seconds.

Store in a glass jar at
room temperature for up
to 1 week. To reheat,
uncover and microwave on
50 % power about 40
seconds or until softened,
but not warm; stir and pour
on your ice-cream.

*Coconut oil looks like
shortening and hardens fast
when chilled. Can be  found
in health food stores or large
supermarkets.
Vegetable oil works too, but
the testers liked the subtle
coconut flavor.

  1. I love anything with mango. The fruit vendor on the corner is selling small mangoes for $1.00 and I find it's the perfect snack. Have a great week!
