Consume Yourself: Kerri’s Signature Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

 

It’s one of my favorite times of the year, mango season. In the summer, they’re easy to find and decently priced. And, if you’re lucky like I am, you could have a mother who provides you with a steady supply of these succulent and refreshing fruit.

One of the perks of having such a large supply of mangoes is concocting new ways to prepare them. One of my experiments, Mango Salsa, became an instant hit and also one of my signature recipes. I’m always asked to make it at home or bring it to parties. It’ll keep people ranting and raving and the best part is that it takes very little effort to prepare.

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

– 1 Large Tomato

– 1 Ripe Mango

– 1/2 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped

– 1 tsp Sea Salt

– 1/2 cup Orange Juice

– 1/4 of a Large Red Onion

– 1 Lime

 

LET’S BEGIN:

Gather ingredients.

Mango Salsa Ingredients

 

Start off by dicing up the tomato. Set aside in a large mixing bowl.

Peel the mango and discard the skin.

Slice a few horizontal and vertical lines into the flesh of the mango, creating a grid-like pattern. Slice off the layers of mango until you reach the pit, creating little cubes. Add to the mixing bowl.

Add the juice of one lime to the mixture.

Finally, dice up the onion and add it to the mixing bowl.

Give it a good stir and it’s ready to go!

Final Mango Salsa

 

See what I mean? So simple, yet so good.

I usually pair it up with blue corn tortilla chips, making the perfect snack to satisfy a sweet and salty craving. It’s also fabulous baked on top of fish or garnished over fish tacos. Try it out and tell me what your favorite thing to pair it up with is!
