Mango Salsa

Delicious mango salsaI love salsa. It’s got to be one of the best snacks in the world. Dips are just awesome. That’s a fact. But then salsa is fresh, healthy and absolutely delicious! I love how you can slightly change up the ingredient list and create so many different flavor combinations. So this week, as I was dreaming up healthy snack options (like these baked edamame and banana chips) I knew I needed to make a quick salsa as well.

Mango salsa ingredientsMango Salsa

2 ripe mangos
2-3 ripe tomatoes
1/3 white onion
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 jalapeno with the seeds removed (optional)
1 lime
salt to taste

I make salsa a couple different ways, depending on how impatient I’m being. 🙂 If you’re pressed for time then just throw the first six ingredients in a food processor and give it a quick chop. You don’t want to puree the mixture into a smoothie texture (salsa smoothie… um… no thanks). If you have a little more time, you can do this by hand, finely chopping each ingredient and stirring them together in a serving bowl. Last squeeze on the juice from one lime and give a generous sprinkle of salt. Taste and add more salt or citrus if needed.Mango salsa recipeIf you can’t find ripe mangos try using 2-3 ripe peaches instead. Peach salsa. Mmmmm. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did, I’m starting to dream about summer. 🙂 xo. Emma
