Fresh Orange Salsa

Fresh Orange Salsa is a fantastic appetizer to quickly mix together but it can also be used as a garnish/topping on other dishes! Other than just eating it with fresh tortilla chips, our favorite way to make use of it is to top off tilapia (really any type of white fish) or chicken for a tropical inspired meal.

The addition of ripe juicy orange to this recipe adds a refreshing twist on traditional Pico de Gallo.

Over the next week, I’ll be posting all of the recipe components for one of our friends and family’s most requested dinner: Tilapia with Black Beans and Fresh Orange Salsa. So keep an eye out! The Caribbean style black beans are coming up next with the Tilapia to follow. Put them all together and you have yourself an AMAZING dinner.
