Raspberry Orange Salsa, over salmon

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, pineapple and kiwi all have anti-cancer properties. These fruits contain vitamin C, an important antioxidant for the immune system, a powerful infection fighter and a necessity for our skin’s collagen and elasticity.
