Mango salsa recipe

Mango salsa recipe
• Mango salsa is something I don't make very often, but it's a lovely
change from salsa or guacamole. This is a nice base recipe for it once you've made it you can customize it very easy.
• Cucumber, jicama and red pepper also add great flavor to this
mango salsa recipe if you're craving more fruits and veggies!
• This salsa is amazing with grilled meat of any kind or blackened
chicken, but normally I just eat a whole bowl by myself with some

Step 1: Ingredients
• 2 ripe mangos
• 1/4 - 1/2 red onion
• 1-2 jalapeno or serrano
• fresh lemon or lime juice
• salt
• fresh cilantro to taste
• cayenne pepper to taste
(optional but awesome)

Riper is better when it comes to mangos - too underripe and the salsa
will end up very sour. Make sure they're a little soft to the touch.
I prefer lemon juice here because lime is slightly sweeter.

Step 2: Dice everything finely
I cut up a whole jalapeno and a little less than 1/2 an onion.
For the mangos, cut off the mango cheeks and cut the mango while it's
still in the skin as shown - get as close to the skin as possible with the tip
of the knife! Then use a spoon to scoop out the cut mango.
If the mango is coming out still attached at the base, don't go as deep
with the spoon. There will be a little mango left in the skin like in photo 3.

Step 2: Dice everything finely

Step 3: Mix it all together
• Put all the diced ingredients into a bowl.
• Add a handful of chopped cilantro (no stems!) and a good pinch of
salt. Then squeeze the juice of half a lemon on top.
• Mix this all together.

Step 4: Final seasonings
