Sumo Tangerine are everywhere this time of year. They are so good and so since I am watching what I eat these days, these are great to have around. On my program I count points and there are no points in this salsa so why not keep it the frig all the time? This has lots of crunch and tons of favor. I put it on fish, chicken, tacos and even baked tortilla chips. Tonight I am grilling pork loin with grilled veggies salad and using it on top of that. Sumo’s are a sure sign Spring is not far away. After this Winter we could all use a little Spring. I hope this helps get you kick started into better weather.
