A while back, maybe in the summer, I was at a good friends house, and she was talking about mango salsa. I told her I loved mango, but I couldn't imagine anything more disgusting than mango salsa. She insisted I would like it, and made a batch for me to taste. Um......I felt like I had wasted a lot of years hating something that is so delicious it's crazy! I think when I heard "mango salsa" I imagined regular salsa with mangoes thrown into the mix. That would be yucky. But that is not what this is, no sir-ee.
This salsa is fairly forgiving to each person's personal taste. I add a lot more cilantro than I mention above, and will often use 4-5 jalapeño peppers because I like the heat. I also used mini sweet peppers (cut into rings) for this batch. I also cut my mango pretty big, but I like to eat this on salad, so I wanted bigger pieces. In conclusion, add more of less of things you like and don't like!
To cut a mango, hold the fruit up so you can see the stem, and cut down & around the pit (the mango shape mimics the pit shape, so you know where the flat sides of the pit are). Then cut each half you've into strips, and each strip into chunks. Don't forget to peel the extra skin off the pit, and slice that fruit off too!
That night at my friends house we ate the salsa with corn chips, but I will eat it on it's own, on salads, and even on meat. This mango salsa is crazy-town yummy!
Wait, random, but did anyone else know this was national grilled cheese month!?! I realize this has nothing to do with mango salsa, but how very exciting! :) I need to think up a few new ones for this month, I guess! In the meantime, my sandwich category has a few ya might like!
