San Diego Fusion Feast!

Grilled London Broil Tacos with Mango Salsa
We're really enjoying our Father's Day weekend with some tasty, healthy eats.  In sticking with our gluten-free theme, this delicious dinner really revolves around the magical mango salsa.  It's quick, easy and fresh.  We grilled the London Broil just until it was medium rare and threw it all together in some freshly made corn tortillas!  Easy enough, right? Well, we didn't stop there!

 We took a large yam, made some big french fry size slices, coated it in olive oil and southwest spices and baked them in the oven at 400 degrees for just about 15 minutes.  Out came a terrific, healthy side dish that didn't even make it to the table...they were so yummy, it ended up being our appetizer!
