Mango Salsa

One of my favorite “go-to” meals is this colorful Mango Salsa, served on top of many different entrees.

For example, I use it on grilled fish (especially salmon but great on halibut or sea bass). I like it on chicken and pork, too. It’s healthy, beautifully colorful, and extremely healthy because of the mango and all those veggies.

It is also an impressive way to entertain because of all those gorgeous colors. It is best when made about an hour before serving so the mango holds its shape nicely.

I prefer to use a mango that is only slightly ripe, rather than one that is fully ripe because it dices more neatly and stays firmer, rather than getting mushy. Enjoy!
