After a spell of long and severe winter, everything about Spring looks beautiful. The sunrises, sunsets, blooms on trees, the brighter sunlight during the day and the sights and songs of birds, bunnies hopping through the yard and all. This change around me has renewed my interest in cooking and the variations I could make in the food we eat at home.
I had bought some mangoes (kent) which were rather firm and were a little tart. When left on the counter top for a couple days, they turn super soft and are fiber less. I chopped them up and made a mango salsa. It was super delicious, vibrant in color, fresh in flavors, crunchy in bite, chunky in texture. It could be served in a number of ways. Along with a regular meal, with tacos, with tortilla chips or on the side with some grilled fish.
Ripe mango-1 big ( peeled and cut into small cubes)
Tomatoes-2 small (de-seeded and cut into small cubes)
Onion-2 tbs ( diced)
Salt- to taste
Lemon juice-2 tbs
Cilantro- 2 tbs( chopped)
1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl.
2. Toss them together and refrigerate for and hour to allow the flavors to blend well.
3. Transfer to a serving bowl.
