To start us off, I bring you a delectable fish entree! The mild, white tilapia is oven-roasted to perfection, but the real star of the show is the salsa. If you've ever been leery about using fruit in a savory dish (such as salsa), now is your chance to branch out! The mango, black beans, lime and cilantro meld beautifully (both in taste and in visuals!) and the salsa pairs perfectly with the mild fish. Not only does the mango add a pop of color, it pops with flavor as well! I was pleasantly surprised to find that fruit salsa can be absolutely delicious!
Oh, and if you're wondering what the green stuff is in the picture, it's an avocado cream sauce- perfect for dipping and great on rice. Simply mash 1 avocado and mix with 1/3 cup greek yogurt and 2 TB sour cream!
