My husband, Matt, enjoys cooking and trying new recipes. Over the weekend he made a yummy mango salsa recipe from Simply Recipes . Today I am going to share this great recipe with you!
1 ripe mango, peeled.pitted, and diced ( about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 medium red onion ( if you do not like onion, subsitute with a red bell pepper), finely chopped
1 Jalapeno chile, minced ( don't worry its not spicy, unless you want to include the seeds and ribs)
1 small cucumber
3 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves
3 Tbsp lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Below are the steps on how to cut a mango.
The Mango has a pit in the middle, so you have to cut along the sides of pit separating the flesh from the pit. When that is done proceed with the below steps
|Take the mango and cut horizontally and vertically without cutting through the peel|
|You end up with block sized pieces of mango in the peel|
Matt had already cut it up before I got the chance to take the picture
Peel and Chop up one small cucumber
Chop three tablespoons of Cilantro leaves ( you can really just eyeball this)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl
Add lime juice
For the lime juice you can roll one lime on cutting board and slice in half and squeeze into mixture
Add salt and pepper to taste
Mix ingredients together with lime juice and salt and pepper
This is what you get!
You can serve it with tortilla chips, or put it in tacos! Or eat it alone!
It is refreshingly yummy!
