Fruit salsas are sort of a new discovery for me. Just within the past few years, I’ve discovered watermelon salsa and pineapple salsa, and reveled in the marvelous mix of sweet, hot, and savory, all together in one marvelous bite.
Mangoes are probably the best suited of all fruits to grace a salsa, they already have a little minty undertone in their flavor, that blends just so perfectly with sweet onions, jalapeno and cilantro. My kids thought it was odd that I was mixing mango and onion. Yes, I suppose it might seem a little odd. But it works. It works marvelously. It is the ideal salsa to top your fish, chicken, or pork. You can eat it with chips … or spread a cracker with some cream cheese and top with mango salsa. It is a very versatile condiment.
I think my favorite use for this mango salsa is on a fish taco.
- 1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
- 1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
- 1/2 - 2 teaspoons chopped jalapeno pepper, chopped
- Several cilantro leaves, chopped
- A pinch of granulated garlic
- A pinch of salt
- In a small bowl, stir together all the ingredients. Adjust the jalapeno, garlic, and salt to taste. Enjoy with fish, pork, chicken, or chips.
- Store in a covered container in the fridge.
