Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner, and you’re gearing up to feed a houseful of hungry Panthers and Broncos fans. Store-bought pigs in a blanket, pizza, and tortilla chips? Check, check, and check. Store-bought salsa? Not necessary when you have a simple six-ingredient recipe in your back pocket. The Mango Cucumber Salsa from You Have It Made ($18; amazon.com), written by best-selling author and dietician Ellie Krieger, is the perfect topper for chips, crudité, or chicken wings, and can be made in a flash. For an added kick, “you can also add some chopped jalapeño,” suggests Krieger. Try the recipe below.
