Mahi Mahi Tacos with Mango Salsa

Hi friends!  If you’re living through Summer the way I am (air conditioning blasting, feet in the sand every chance you get and as many cool foods as possible), this recipe is for you!  Light, easy to prep, delicious with a tangy sweetness- it’s all that I want in a Summer dinner these days!  Bonus points if you fire up the grill and eat outside where everything tastes better.    Double bonus points if you have ice cream for dessert.  TRIPLE BONUS POINTS if you follow it up with a night swim- doesn’t matter where: pool, ocean, creek, I’m not picky.  What can you use these point for you wonder?  I DON’T KNOW.  But you’ll have them.  You figure out the rest.  Happy Summer’ing everyone!  xx- Sarah

    Oh Sarah, these looks beautiful. I can’t cook them on the grill, nor can I go for a swim afterwards but I can definitely do ice cream. Small wins!
