Mango Salsa




From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Before getting to today's recipe, I wanted to let you know about an article in Gourmet Live that lists the 50 most important women in food. The list is fairly comprehensive and contains some entries and omissions that might surprise you. At the very least, it will give you something to talk about with other foodies and friends. Over the course of the next year, I'm going to try to make one dish created by each of the women on the list. If you'd like to join in the fun, email me and we can formalize a schedule. Otherwise, I'll aim to publish one recipe each Friday starting the second week in June. I hope to hear from you.

The hail was a bit much, but other than that we've had a great day. The fajitas and tacos were both well-received and everyone loved the mango salsa I'm featuring here tonight. This simple condiment is a feature of Mexican, Asian and Indian cuisine. This version has a decidedly Mexican bent and, like yesterday's pico de gallo, a recipe is needed only to list the ingredients required to make it. Once they are assembled the dish becomes a chop, combine and chill affair that can be tailored to your liking. I do hope you will give it a try. Here's the recipe.

Mango Salsa...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups diced mango
3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a storage container. Cover and chill for up to 3 days. Yield 2 cups.

How appropriate as I head north to the tropics downunder in Australia!!

We may even visit the mango capital of Australia - Bowen!!

Have a great week!

Pondside said...

Well, I'm a big fan of mango chutney, so I bet I'll like this too.

I love mango but I don't buy it too often, I've seen salsas like this but never tried it. Well, I am for sure going to try this soon! Thanks!

The Harried Cook said...

I love the idea for the new series you're starting! I make mango salsa often, and love it! And pineapple salsa too :) Great picture, Mary!

angsarap said...

I love salsa like these, it is common in Philippines but we use the semi ripe mangoes so theres a hint of sourness and sweetness to it. We do pair it with grilled meats and they are a perfect pair!

Ambreen said...

Mango, I just love them! Never tried them like that, this looks very inviting!

Food Glorious Food! said...

I ma a big fan of mangoes too! Thanks for the lovely recipe! Just need to try getting some jalapeƱo chillies...

Mabgo salsa is something I ahve been wanting to try for a while, in fact earlier today I bookmarked a recipe using port chops.

elle marie said...

Mango Salsa sounds perfect... I tend to go for sweet and spicy!

Looks positively scrumptious!

Buttercup said...

I think I need to get a mango (or two) this afternoon. I'd like to make this salsa and do a mango shake. Hope you're having a great weekend.

What's next said...

I took mango salsa to a get together once and I could not believe the attention it drew... no one else there had ever had it... I need some now though now that I'm thinking about it...

Food, Fun and Life in the Charente said...

I love mangoes so this must be yummy. Will give it a try. Take care Diane

Choclette said...

For some reason I'm unable to view your v
photograph, which is a shame as I always enjoy your excellent photography. Mango Salsa is delicious - I don't make it often as mango's aren't always easy to come by, but I have made it a few times. Fresh mango chutney too which is also good.

PeggyR said...

This looks very good. I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Elisabeth said...

I can hardly wait for our mangos to ripen. We have a huge mango tree, and just in a couple weeks they should be all ripening.
This is the same exact way that I make the mango salsa...absolutely perfect, delicious and divine:DDD

SashaInTheKitchen said...

I make my own similar mango salsa as well - its the best. Yours looks great!

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

I know this would go over big with my kids, they love mango! Looks delicious.

I love mango salsa! This looks so appetizing.

aeshcame said...

aah what a refreshing bite, i love mangoes and making it into a salad is truly one of the best ways to enjoy it.

Parsley Sage said...

Hmmm...I just got handed two of the most glorious mangoes you've ever seen when I was at the farm this morning taking care of the parrots. One has been reserved for my dessert for tonight...perhaps the other is destined to become SALSA! Thanks for sharing :)

Stephen said...

I love mango salsa. I first experienced it while I was a white water rafting guide in Northern California. A loca B&B gave us a recipe. As everyone has indicated it sounds like the perfect addition to a Memorial Day BBQ (even though it is hailing 2 inches, in the Tehachapi Mtns)

LoveIsBrightAndYourMySunShine said...

Mangoes are my favorite fruit! This salsa sounds like something I want to have on hand to snack on constantly. And I would love to cook through these women's recipes with you! I'll be emailing you.

Ginny said...

Oh, this is jut gorgeous!! Forget how it tastes, I just want to put a big bowl of it on the table for a centerpiece!! Sunshine in a bowl!

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

I absolutely love the way a fresh mango salsa tastes on a crisp, salty chip. Amazing combination.

Rachel said...

Unfortunately, I'm allergic to mangoes, but it looks delicious! I'll have to make it for my husband...I think he'd really enjoy this salsa!

Judy said...

I love mangoes but have never tried mango salsa. I'll put this in my queue.

Nicola @ unhip squirrel said...

mmm... I love mango salsa! We've made it a few times to go over fish. It's just wonderful! I think you and I have a few things in common with respect to food :)

briarrose said...

Perfect salsa. I love the mix of flavors...especially all that gorgeous mango.

yummychunklet said...

I love the look and taste of this mango salsa. It would go great with a roasted pork tenderloin.

L.T. said...

What a coincidence, I was planning on makig mango salsa to go with grilled salmon for dinner tonight. Thank-you for sharing your recipe. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Wendy Irene said...

I love the idea of the spice from the jalapeno mixed with the sweetness from the mango. It sounds really balanced.

Claudia said...

The mango truly is the star of this salsa - with enough spice to be sweet with a bite. It goes with all - and when the meal is done, the family laps up whatever salsa is left. I love what you are doing and am interested but have never been able to keep to a blogging schedule. I always mean to... but the freelancing changes every month. And I must look up the women in food. Yay to celebrating women in food!

Sandra said...

I love mango too and this salsa looks and sounds like a perfection!!!Very tasty!!! Thanks for sharing fantastic recipe and have a wonderful rest of the Sunday!

Catherine said...

Dear Mary, It is warm tonight and this mango salsa looks so refreshing! Have a wonderful evening. Blessings, Catherine

Pam said...

I'll have to email you, cooking through these recipes sounds like a fun challenge.

Jeannie said...

I could devour that bowl of mango salsa in a blink! without the tacos...I love them as it is!

~~louise~~ said...

Curious list from Gourmet Live...I'm not sure I agree and I positively think there are a few inclusions and omissions that need reconsideration.

Kudos to you Mary for taking on the list. It should be quite interesting, and tasty too!!!

You have finally convinced me to reconsider the Mango. Your salsa is worthy of a try, it sure looks "purty."

Thanks for sharing Mary...

Mandy said...

Delightful and refreshing! I love mango salsa!!

sheila @ Elements said...

I love mango salsa, and yours looks great! I've never made it with jalapenos before, but I'm sure it's wonderful! :)
