Grilled Halibut with Strawberry-Mango Salsa

Hey everyone, I thought it would be cool to post some recipes I had found online. I’m going to *try* to do some of these beforehand, but I’m sure there’ll be times I won't. I'm going to call this Finicky Friday. :)

LOL, yes, yes, there was indeed a trend for July. What can I say, I love strawberries! Next month I'm focusing on watermelon. I think. Maybe, lol. Watermelon and summer kind of goes hand-in-hand, don't you think?
