I LOVE mango salsa. I was apprehensive about it at first but It’s so light and full of flavor! Since I’ve first tried it, I love using it on about anything: burritos, nachos, tacos, sandwich wraps, burgers – it’s even delicious just eating it by the spoonful!
Who knew fruit other than a tomato goes great in salsa? The first time I even heard of mango salsa, my reaction was, “ummm, what? “. After trying it I was surprised that something like mango would go so well as a salsa. So I’ve concocted my own, and to liven things up a bit, I added some jalapeno and cucumber to it that really gives it a good bite and a mild spice that you’ll love!
This is such a quick and easy thing to make any night. Just chop everything up, mix it altogether and serve! I love having this or my pico de gallo handy during the week because it makes a quick dinner a little more special? Don’t have time to do anything for dinner? Cook up some quesadillas, with a side of beans and top it with some mango salsa!
And look at all the colors! Plenty of vitamins and nutrients to counteract that greasy quesadilla right?! I mean I’m no nutritionist, but I’m pretty sure that’s how it works. OK, maybe that’s not how it works, but I can always dream right?!
I think the first time I tried cutting a mango I got pretty frustrated, thinking I could just cut it down the center without any problem. The fact is there is a hard center that you won’t be able to cut through. You’l want to cut the mango close to the center and along this hard “pit”. You can do this across 2 sides, and then get smaller spears if you want to get the full use out of 1 mango.
