Mango salsa recipe
Salsa is a Spanish term meaning sauce. It is usually made of fresh ingredients like onions, tomatoes, and jalapenos. Often served with chips, tortillas, burritos and so on.
Mango are in abundance now, enjoying them as is or as a smoothie are my preferred ways. This mango salsa is a change from the usual mango desserts, smoothies and ice creams.
Jalapenos are used in most salsa recipes as they add a different taste to the salsa, however I prefer the regular hot chilies. If you don’t like cucumbers, you can skip. I love cucumbers as they keep body well hydrated.
My other ideas to making a best mango salsa are using honey if you have a sweet tooth, few nuts if you like nutty taste, a bit of lemon juice if your tomato isn’t tangy. I tried this with roasted and skinned peanuts earlier and loved it.
