Mango Salsa

This is such a great summer appetizer.  It is a combination of a few different recipes.  It is easy to prepare, except for cutting the mango which can be a little tricky.
  • 1 large mango (or 2 small), peeled and diced small
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ lime, freshly squeezed
  • 2 T. fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • ½ t. kosher salt
  1. Peel the mango with a vegetable peeler
  2. Cut the mango in half as close to the seed as possible and dice into small pieces
  3. In a medium bowl, with a cover, combine the mango, red onion, red bell pepper, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, and salt
  4. Stir all ingredients and refrigerate for several hours
  5. Serve with tortilla chips 
Tips and Tricks:
  • I serve this salsa with Tostitos Scoops or Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips.
  • Some people are not cilantro fans, but this salsa really needs the cilantro to pull it together.
