Mango Salsa

26 Apr

It is officially spring and nothing screams spring/summertime eating to me like fresh, juicy mangoes. I used to eat mangoes with my dad and just remember the juices dripping down my hands and scraping the seed for any last bit of meat I could muster. One of my favorite light, summer-time meals is mango salsa served with steamed broccoli and talipa fish. Yet, mango salsa is also perfect as part of a trio of salsas or dip with chips as an appetizer or happy hour snack. It is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 mangoes (the small, champagne mangoes are my favorite)
  • 1-4 serrano peppers (this truly depends on the level of heat you are seeking)
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Red onion, chopped
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1-2 limes
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Chop all your ingredients and mix!
  2. Serve with white fish as part of your dinner or as an appetizer with chips!

This salsa is amazingly good. Sweet, spicy and refreshing all at the same time. It’s a versatile side dish, but I really do enjoy it served with tilapia, broccoli and avocado like pictured above.
