Zesty Mango Salsa

It’s summer, it’s hot, your hungry, i’m hungry… and lets just admit that we want something tasty and we want it quick!!  Mango salsa is one of my all time favs because you can actually put it on top of anything, dip anything into it, or eat it all by itself.  I like to add a ton of greens into mine and eat it as a salad OR put it on top of grilled shrimp or fish tacos.  I’m a little disappointed that my avocado wasn’t ripe enough to add to this because it would have been fantastic.  May I also recommend you bring this to the next event you find yourself invited to… people will be THRILLED!

Serves: 2 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (red or yellow)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (add a little at a time if you don’t like spicy)

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

Directions

  1. combine all ingredients and serve!

 

A few notes and suggestions:

  • a ripe mango will be SUPER soft (don’t eat it unless you can leave a fingerprint on it when you squeeze it)
  • add black beans for added protein
  • add diced red or green bell pepper
  • add avocado (for obvious reasons)
  • use red onion instead of green
  • add more jalapeño if you like it extra spicy
  • serve on top of anything grilled (chicken, fish, shrimp, steak etc.)
