The fresh fruits of summer inspire colorful salsas all season long. With a rainbow of tomatoes and peppers ripening in the garden, we love to make this sweet and spicy tropical treat with juicy mangos, diced pineapple, and a dollop of our restaurant’s famous Jalapeño Sesame Salsa to add a uniquely flavorful heat.
This salsa pairs wonderfully with grilled fish, chicken tacos, baked tofu, or as a topping on homemade Yumm! Bowls®. It’s also a delicious snack with tortilla chips and a side of velvety guacamole.
You can adjust the spiciness by changing up the amount of Jalapeño Sesame Salsa you use in this recipe or make it extra hot by adding diced jalapeños.
Jalapeño Sesame Salsa is available for takeout and delivery!
