My next door neighbor makes an amazing mango salsa. And she's kind enough to hand me a bowl of it over our fence when she makes it. How lucky for me! Thank you Yen!!
So, when I had some mangoes at home, I really wanted to try to make some salsa. And so I made it. It was really good - but hers is totally better. That's because I missed a key ingredient and also my mango pieces were a little on the bigger side. So, if you try this, do keep that in mind.
Wash, peel and chop your mango into small pieces. In fact, make it smaller than what I show here. A good option would be to cut them into small pieces and then give a couple of pulses in a food processor. I missed that step and regretted later. Doing that would also bring out some of the juices from the mango.
Chop 1 big tomato into small pieces and add to the mangoes.
Now, add some finely chopped onions to the mangoes and tomatoes.
Then, add some finely chopped cilantro.
Now, add about 1/3rd cup of orange juice ...yes..this was my neighbors secret ingredient too. The other main ingredient I missed here was another 1/3 or a little less cup of lemon juice. So, if you are trying, do add that lemon juice for a way better flavor.
Now, add some finely chopped jalapenos peppers in here - this give that kick needed and the taste buds rejoice between the spice from here and the sweetness from the mangoes.
If you don't finish it off as is from the bowl, scoop some salsa with some chips and enjoy the crunch!
I made this to serve along with my Homemade Veggie Patty Burger dinner.
What are you going to serve this with?
Enjoy! Peace out!
