Mango Salsa

Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits.  It is one fruit I love in both sweet and savory dishes.  Mangoes are a perfect ingredient to make a chutney and now this salsa.  This salsa could not be easier with only a handful of ingredients, but it certainly gives you one heck of a party in your mouth.  I made this salsa to go with my Masala Spiced Shrimp Cocktail and it was a fantastic combination together.  You can also accompany this salsa with any grilled fish, chicken or pork dish or you can eat it just with a spoon like I did.


Ingredients:
2 ripe mango skinned and diced small (see note)
2 Tbs red onion minced
1-2 green chiles (seeded) minced (serrano or jalapeno)
1 fresno chili or mild red chili minced
1 tsp of honey
juice of 1 lime
salt to taste

Note:  I recommend a champagne mango (or alphonso) for this salsa. This kind of mango is much smaller and more oblong long than the traditional mangoes.  They are not fibrous so you get a wonderful buttery fruit.

Directions:
Prep all ingredients and mix together. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. Served fresh at room temperature or chilled. Enjoy.

  7. I am not sure how I feel about mangos. I think I eat them when I am not sure they are included but would probably pass if I was told this has mango in it. Regardless the color is gorgeous.

  11. Ramona...I just adore mangoes! And this salsa looks like a perfect accompaniment to most anything I will throw on the grill this summer. The trouble with mangoes is that I want to eat big slices of them before I can begin to start dicing! Hope you have a GREAT week! : )

  16. Ok, I have to admit, I only like mango if it's mixed with something savory. So I would totally love this! I love the sweet/spicy combo!
