Fresh Mango Salsa

For as much as I love mangoes I don’t cook with them that often. Usually, I just eat them fresh. I had several ripe mangoes and decided I needed to do something with them. I went with a mango salsa. It is a raw dish- no cooking involved- just chopping and mixing of ingredients. I think the end result has a really fresh taste that way. Like any salsa you can enjoy it with chips, but I love it as a topper for grilled meats, especially poultry or pork. Really good on grilled duck breast.  I have also added it to cold rice for a mango salsa rice salad. If you don’t have mangoes, chopped peaches are a pretty good substitute.

Fresh Mango Salsa

2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and diced

1/2 c. minced sweet onion

1/2 c. minced sweet pepper

2-3 T. chopped fresh cilantro

1 T. hot sauce, or to taste

zest and juice from 1 lime

salt and pepper to taste, don’t be afraid to give this dish a good bit of salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until mixed. Check seasonings. Chill for at least 30 minutes and taste again- you will likely add more seasoning. Serve over grilled meats or with chips.
