Here are two fruit salsa recipes to blow your mind

In my last column about strawberries, I prompted you to try making a strawberry salsa and gave you some direction on how to go about doing so. Fruit salsas are so fresh and delicious, and a perfect way to compliment the summer grilling season. So much so, that I am giving you two more fruit salsa recipes to help bring excitement to your next backyard grilling adventure. 
These are perfect on a variety of grilled meats and seafood, or simply on their own served with tortilla chips. Both of these recipes are from my cookbook, The Best In Your Kitchen, available through Amazon or chefdez.com.
