Good Taste: mango salsa

I made this mango salsa recently for a summer gathering and my friends loved it. At least they said they did and they ate it. It’s so refreshing and goes with so many meals.

I was planning on making this and my neighbor came by with fresh home-grown tomatoes this morning. What timing.

My personal goal is to master slicing a mango. I know the technique but I’m still working on perfecting it. Here’s the step-by-step: slice the mango down the long side, off center to avoid the pit. Do the same with the other side. Now you have two slices. Cut cubes without cutting through the skin.

With your thumbs push the mango inside out so that the cubes pop up. Now slice off the cubes with a paring knife. Do the same with the other half and cut up the fruit around the pit.

Add your diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro and drizzle with lime juice. You can use the mango salsa to top a salad, add to a fish or chicken dish or just eat it up.

You can find the recipe under the goodie bag tab.

Mmmmm – mangolicious!
