Salsa Sunday: Mango Salsa

Sorry for the late post folks. We had a fussy baby here on the home front. I did not want to miss today's post because this is one of my favorite salsas.


3-Semi-ripe mango's (see color above...if you get this mix and it is not squishy you will get a tasty mango)

1 bunch of cilantro

The juice of one lime

1/2 of a red onion

Salt to taste

Optional items: Jalapeno for spice, red bell pepper for variation, sugar if you happen to get sour mango's.

Now this recipe rests entirely on the mango. You want to get as much meat off this baby as you can. Cut into quarters and peel off the skin.

Then cut through into a grid like you see above.

Then cut off all that you can; making sure that you do not cut too close the seed. The mango is more fibrous there. Look at all that loveliness!

Once you have all your ingredients chopped, dump them into your bowl, add lime juice and salt to taste.

Stir up your salsa real well and taste. You want the sweetness of the mango, the mild spice of the cilantro and the bite of the red onion. If you happen to not be lucky with your mango's, add a little sugar and extra lime to get a little more sweet into your salsa.

And try to leave some for your grilled chicken or fish meal that evening. This is also fabulous over black beans and white rice. Can also be eaten with the classic tortilla chip or with a large spoon. yum.

Buen Provecho!
