mango salsa

this salsa is my new absolutely favorite way to boost my daily fruit & vegetable quota. am getting bolder by the week with produce picks. when i slice these ripe babies up, i feel like i'm playing a game of twister with the cast of grease; sweet mango is sandra dee to my john travolta red pepper. little miss lime divine is definitely rizzo. get out the chopping block, this reunion is cause for serious celebration. they go together.

marta's mango salsa

1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted & cubed
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 peach, diced
1 roma tomato, diced
1 small cucumber, peeled & diced
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeƱo chile, minced (optional)
1 ripe avocado, diced (optional)
4 Tbs fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
juice of one or two limes

combine the fresh ingredients in a bowl.
season with salt & pepper.
serve with tortilla chips
& any Mexican cuisine.

you crack me up - but I completely agree with the grease interpretation! (and the salsa looks yummy and can't wait to try it - thanks!) question about the fonts you used for "mango salsa", is it one (very fun one), or did you mix a few?

i was this close to sharing my papaya salsa the other day, it's quite divine also.

Hil said...

holy smokes. how did you know how to cut up a mango?? I'm so naive when it comes to tropical fruits. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have placed it in my "must try" file.

My last name means mango in Cambodian and so D loves anything mango. I'll have to make this for him. Thanks!

A different twist on Mango Salsa from Erin at http://erinskitchen.blogspot.com/

She uses just mango, cilantro, green onions, lime and MINT . Her suggestion is to serve it over roasted red snapper.
