Mango Salsa

mango salsa

Mangos are a revelation ! I have abandoned lettuce altogether and most nights make either a kale or mango salad to go with our main course. This was a twist on the mango salads I’ve been creating (recipes coming soon) and was fantastic on simple grilled pork chops.

Best if it sits for a few hours first but if all you have is 20 min it will get the job done!

Use a mango that is just barely ripe.

1 ripe mango ( I have tried this with both kinds of mango and both work)

1 green onion or some chives (if you use chives also add 1 tablespoon or so of diced red, white, or yellow onion)

1/4 sweet red pepper or tomato

1 small jalapeño (or half a large – seeds and membranes removed)

1 – 1.5 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

1 – 1.5 tablespoons of fresh lime juice

1 tsp of red chili flakes

Handful of parsley or cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste

Dice mango and veggies and add other ingredients. Refrigerate.

Serve with tortilla chips, alongside fajitas, on top of any kind of grilled meat, or throw on top of a green salad for something special.
