Mango Salsa

For a sweet and spicy alternative to tomato salsa, try a mango salsa. Here's how to make your own.

Gather Your Ingredients

Start with 2 mangos, 1 jalapeno, 1/2 a red onion, a bunch of mint and 1 lime.

Score the Mango

Slice off the sides of the first mango, sliding the knife alongside the pit in the center. Score the mango flesh in a series of 1/4-inch rows, then turn 90 degrees and slice again perpendicularly. Flatten the mango, and slide the knife along the bottom of the flesh, creating a dice. Cut away as much of the remaining flesh as possible around the pit, and dice finely. Repeat this process with the second mango.

Dice the Onion

Chop the onion to a fine dice.

Dice the Jalapeno

Remove the top of the jalapeno, slice in half, and remove the seeds and membranes. Dice the pepper finely. Chop the mint finely as well.

Combine and Enjoy! 

Combine the diced mango, onion and jalapeno with the mint, juice of 1 lime, and salt and pepper to taste. The salsa is best made a few hours ahead and will last in the refrigerator, covered, for up to a week.
