Chef Mike Delao of CannabisPlanetTV and HighTimes.com has shared one of his signature sides with The Daily Meal.  This tropical salsa has all of the desired flavors while offering a healthy alternative to other Cannabis Club Culinary Offerings.  For those without a need for medical marijuana, simply replace the cannabis honey with regular honey.  Chef Mike suggests pairing this recipe with a healthy fish dish or on it's own with chips.

Ingredients

• 1 cup mango, diced

• 1 cup papaya, diced

• 1 cup pineapple, diced

• 1/2 cup red onion, diced

• 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

• 1/8 cup cider vinegar

• 4 fresh red chili peppers, seeded and minced

• Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

• 1 tablespoon Medicated Cannabis Honey (per person)

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Let stand for 20 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.

Salsa Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Salsa Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
