Mango Salsa recipe

Mango Salsa

0 0 0 No comments

Sweet mangos add a tropical flavor to this colorful salsa. Balanced with the heat of a jalapeño pepper and a little bit of lime juice, it goes perfectly with meat, fish, and especially anything grilled. It’s also great with tortilla chips or as a topping for hamburgers.

Mangos have a soft, fleshy pulp. When ripe, they’re exceedingly juicy and delicious. Like many fruits, they offer a wide range of health benefits, especially vitamin C and beta-carotene. They’re also high in fiber.

How to Cut a Mango

How to Dice a Mango

Position the mango stem-side up with the narrow side of the fruit facing you. Cut down one side of the flat pit (the pit is wide, but only about 1/2-inch thick). Then cut down the other side.

Take one half of the mango and place it on a cutting board, skin-side down. Make cuts across the mango, about 1/2-inch wide. Don’t slice all the way through. Turn the mango 90 degrees and do the same, cutting the mango into 1/2-inch squares. Push the mango skin in, turning it inside out, so to speak, so that the squares can be easily cut off.
