Recipe: Salmon With Mango Salsa

A different and delicious grilling option

Salmon with mango salsa

Salmon is a great break from grilling the usual dogs and burgers. And salmon is a great choice for heart health, as it provides essential fatty acid omega-3s and is low in calories and saturated fat. Plus, with the sweet zippiness of mango salsa, it’s sure to be a summer sensation.
