You say Salsa Fresca - I say Fresh Salsa...

When thinking about the American translation of Salsa Fresca, it doesn’t make sense to me to call it “Sauce Fresh.” That’s because, in my 100% Americanized mind, the name should be flip-flopped to Fresca Salsa or “Fresh Salsa.” But that’s probably just me.

But no matter how you arrange the translation, this fresh sauce goes far beyond just using it for dipping chips.

In my mind, I can’t imagine who wouldn’t enjoy the combination of sweet, sour, and spicy fruit and vegetable flavors in this well-balanced mango and pineapple-based sauce.

It’s the perfect sauce for enhancing and ramping up the flavor of almost any traditional food, like hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, or chicken.

Originating in Aztec, Incan, and Mayan cuisines, salsa also known as Salsa Fresca came to North America via the Spanish conquistadors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The term “salsa” is the Spanish word for sauce, and “fresca” is the Spanish word for “fresh.”

Picnic traditions...

Steeped in our family’s picnic tradition, this fresh sauce favorite we call Mango Pineapple Fresca Salsa is another variation of many recipes you’ll find across the web for the uncooked sauce made from fruits and vegetables.

In this recipe combination inspired by the vegetable serving trend of topping riced cauliflower, this fresh salsa’s flavor turns an ordinary hotdog into an over-the-top taste experience that’s easy to do for a barbeque or picnic. Serve in a lettuce bun over cauliflower rice to make it super delicious, nutritious, and wholesome. Goodbye, boring hotdog!

INSTRUCTIONS
 

For the Cauliflower Rice

  • Wash, core, and cut approximately 1/4 head of fresh cauliflower into pieces. Break apart into florets and place into a food processor.
  • Pulse florets in short pulses until they are completely broken down into granules. (As an alternative, grate the florets with a box grater.)
  • Remove any large unprocessed pieces.
  • Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower granules, cover the skillet, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes until the riced cauliflower is tender - season with salt to taste.

For the Mango Pineapple Salsa Fresca

  • Combine the prepared mango, pineapple, peppers, and onion in a small bowl.
  • Add the lime juice, vinegar, and salt. Mix and refrigerate until needed.

For the Hotdogs

  • Grill hotdogs for 2-3 minutes per side over medium heat until heated through. Turn end for end to achieve grill marks.

To Serve

  • Wash lettuce in cold water, then spin it in a salad spinner or lightly dry in a towel to remove excess moisture.
  • Start with prepared lettuce for the bun.
  • Add a spoonful of prepared cauliflower rice, and add a grilled hotdog on top.
  • Spoon salsa fresca on top. Enjoy!
