Easy Mango Salsa!

2 Comments

Mangos are delicious right?! Can a get a hell yeah?! Well, in our household of Jason and I and the pups, mangos are a typical food that we eat. They’re sweet and creamy and juicy and everything perfect in a fruit! And usually, we buy them and eat them within the next day or so-not really leaving much to be played with in recipes or anything. But they’re great on salads or as the base of a dressing or blended into a sorbet; But, like I said, they usually don’t make it beyond us cutting them up and eating it right then and there. Last weekend though, we went to a party and there was a fresh mango salsa that we went crazy over! (I’m always game for Southwestern and Mexican flavors) So fresh and perfect for summer. So yesterday, before my 10 year high school reunion (eek…can that really be true?!) we had over our friends Jenny and Pete. They hadn’t seen our new house yet, so, trying to be a good hostess, I figured it’d be fun to throw together some mango salsa to munch on after the tour. It was delicious!! And just now, for this evening, when the first pre-season Saints football game comes on, I made this again for whoever shows up to watch it! I just kind of Googled it and threw something together based on a few of the recipes I found-and, as usual, my ingredient amounts are kind of eye-balled until I find the right mix. So here’s how I did it!

Easy Mango Salsa

1 mango, peeled and chopped

1/2 large cucumber, skinned and chopped

1/3 cup red onion, chopped

1 tbsp jalapeno, finely chopped

1/3 cup cilantro, very roughly chopped (I threw mine in the mini processor, I also got rid of the hard stems, but left the thin ones in between leaves)

Directions:

Throw it also together and mix up and enjoy!

Tips and Ideas!

*Add this to a salad or wrap!

*Double or triple this recipe if you’re feeding a bunch of people or bringing it to a party

*Save the cilantro stems for juicing

*Do NOT touch your eyes before seriously scrubbing your hands after handing the jalapeno…as I sit here, typing through tears…

  1. Oh yeah!! Mango salsa goes great on smoky stuff especially; it just seems to balance out the flavors really well. Smoke some portobellos or eggplant on your grill and this stuff will be magic as the condiment. Don’t forget a spray bottle full of beer to mist over the stuff on the barbecue while it cooks :-)
