Memorial Day Weekend will be here before we know it. This year, instead of the usual Burgers and Hot Dogs, try something new for your backyard cookout. Tacos are easy to prepare on a grill. Marinate some fish, shrimp, and/or chicken, slice it, and pop it onto grilled corn or flour tortillas. Add your favorite toppings and you have a perfect hand-held meal. Round out your cookout with rice and beans and this cool refreshing salad.

1 Cup Mango Peeled & Cubed 3 T. Fresh Lime Juice
1 Cup Pineapple Peeled & Cubed 3 T. Fresh Orange Juice

1/2 Cup Radishes Slices 1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 Cup Green Onion Sliced 1/2 tsp. Pepper
2 T. Cilantro, Chopped
