Fresh Mango Salsa - two options


What a treat this salsa is...and a nice variation from the traditional salsa we normally eat on a daily basis. We are serious salsa lovers in this house! As many of you may know, my husband has his own "special recipe" he has perfected over the last 5 years or more.  


But as it turns out...we love this too!




I have two versions of fresh mango salsa to share with you. They are both delicious, and I can honestly say we like them equally. If I choose one over the other it's mostly because of the ingredients I have on hand...or remember to buy.

Get your chips ready...





Fresh Mango Salsa I
2 cups chopped mango, pitted and peeled
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, finely chopped - no seeds (I use gloves)
2 bunches chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (I use the entire bunch)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice, about 2 limes
1 Tbsp olive oil
* Note - if you like a milder salsa the jalapeño can be left out.
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy immediately or cover and refrigerate and serve when chilled.


Fresh Mango Salsa II
2 mangos pitted and peeled, chopped into small pieces
1 bunch green onions, chopped finely
1 large red bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup red onion finely chopped
1 jalapeno finely chopped - no seeds (I use gloves)
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 bunched cilantro chopped
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy immediately or cover and refrigerate and serve when chilled.

Both of these versions of mango salsa are delicious with chips, fish tacos, or any of your favorite Mexican dishes. 




Enjoy!!
