Strawberry Mango Salad

Some friends and I headed down to the Southwest Regionals CrossFit Games this past weekend.  Amazing.  It was hard to be a spectator and not a competitor, but it was also so motivating.  What an incredible group of athletes.  Not only were the performances outstanding, but the one thing that constantly reminds me of how much I love this sport is the commeraderie.  You see athletes finish their WOD, panting and exhausted, get back on their feet and make their way over to those still struggling to get through the heat; it's breathtaking and inspiring.

Speaking of breathtaking: I found this recipe on Pinterest the other day.  I knew immediately that it must find its way into my face.  It is absolutely amazing; refreshing and a party for your mouth.  Do it.

1.5 Cup Strawberries, finely diced
1.5 Cup Mangos, finely diced
3/4 Cup Red Onion, finely chopped
12 Basil Leaves, finely chopped
2 TBSP Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

Combine all ingredients. The original recipe suggests letting it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to let the flavors meld, but we were starving and served it was delicious, even for the impatient.
