Time to tango with tangy oranges! This green and orange salsa not only looks good but also tastes good, and is healthy as well. There is a tinge of innovativeness at play too… salsa is usually made with tomatoes and capsicum, but here I have made it with citrus fruits.


This unique, light-baked dish serves as a nutritive and tasty snack. For the salsa to taste best, ensure that you select just-ripe fruits which are sweet and tangy. You can make the salsa in advance too and store in the refrigerator.
