I really love the fresh flavours in this salsa and I think that salsa is a great budget dish to offer guests to your home for celebrations. It promises fresh Summery flavours and I know (at the moment) the weather isn’t all that Summery at the moment. We can hope right?
[recipe][recipe title=”Mango Salsa” servings=”4″ time=”15 mins” difficulty=”easy”]
- 1 red onion
- 1 punnet cherry tomatoes
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 ripe mango
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 lime
- Handful of fresh coriander
Peel and chop the red onion into fine dice. Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters.
Cut the mango by slicing to the left and right of the stone which goes down the very middle of the fruit. Don’t cut down the centre. Separate the skin from the flesh by making a small notch at the edge of the piece you’ve cut. Take a glass and using the notch push the flesh into the glass, with the skin on the outside. Chop into small pieces.
Cut the avocado at the last minute. Stir together all the chopped ingredients and squeeze over the juice of the lime. Tear the fresh coriander and place this on top so that coriander haters can avoid it in their salsa.
Great salsa depends on your ingredients being fresh and ripe at the same time. If you find that your avocados aren’t just ripe put them in the fruit bowl beside a banana a day before you plan to eat them, this will accelerate that ripening time. [/recipe]
