Mango Salsa Recipe

Mango salsa intro

Winter blues got you down? Spice things up with a fiesta! This mango salsa is a fresh and festive dish that changes things up from the old traditional tomato recipe. P.S. It’s also dairy and gluten free!

Ingredients:

2 Mangos
1 Jalapeño
3 Green Onions
2 Tbs. Cilantro
1 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
3 Tbs. Orange Juice
Juice from 1/2 Lime
Tabasco to taste
Tortilla Chips

1. Peel and cut the mangos into small cubes and place into a bowl. I honestly have no great tricks to cutting a mango…they’ve always been a slippery mess for me, but it’s hard not to love them!

2. Chop up the cilantro, jalapeño, and green onions. The cilantro leaves should be taken off the stalks and chopped finely. You can keep or remove the seeds from the jalapeño when chopping. Keeping them in will make the salsa spicier to varying degrees, so I usually don’t chance it and I remove them and add Tabasco if necessary at the end. The green onions should have their dark green and white ends removed and the center stalks can be chopped up.

5. Pour in the orange juice and squeeze the lime over the top of the salsa and stir. I usually taste test the salsa at this point to decide its spice level. Some like it hotter than I do, so adding more jalapeño or some Tabasco can help with this.

6. Place the salsa into a dish with some chips and you’re ready to party! The dish shown below is from Crate and Barrel. It’s perfect for any chip and dip combo and has a great modern design.
