Looking to add a dash of AWESOME to your salads? Or a new salsa to the table? Maybe just need something to top your sweet potatoes with? Mango salsa is the cure for all of these things and more! I loooveee mangoes! They are so wonderful in sweet dishes (like my Mango Lassi Overnight Oats) but they also pair well with savory foods which makes them a big player in my kitchen.
This recipe is from my Vegan Taco Party booklet (you can buy it here!!) – AND I’m holding a giveaway for it right now! I have a first printing copy of Vegan Taco Party (by me of course!) and 1 PDF version as well to GIVEAWAY (so you have 2 chances to win!) What do you have to do? Just comment on any recipes that you have made on http://www.forealslife.com/ (a comment that helps others decide that they want to try it as well!) When you comment please include your email address in the box that designates it for commenting. I am the only person that will be able to see your email address. I will not be sending out spam or selling your email address to anyone! (Trust me, I love you guys!!!) I will ship the booklet anywhere so anyone can enter (unless you are on another planet because I cannot afford rocket fuel!)
I do this with fresh mango but you could also use frozen thawed if you cannot find fresh anywhere. I show you how to cut up a fresh mango in this video but I also came across this mango cutter which looks REALLY NEAT if you struggle with cutting mangoes. I just don’t know what else I could do with it. All you really need is a good (maybe colorful?!) knife and you’re good to go!
The Vegan Taco Party cookbooklet also happens to be a COLORING BOOK! My daughter colored in this one for me. So cute and fun. I love that I keep to keep her coloring in my personal copy of this book.
- 2 mangoes
- 1/4 red onion, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, minced (remove the seeds if desired!)
- 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
- juice of 1/2-1 lime (depending on how juicy they are!)
Chop all of your mango pieces into 1/4″-1/2″ dice. Mix everything together with your chopped mangoes. The salsa tastes best if you give it time to rest so the flavors can meld together (an hour or so!)
