Mango Salsa

This salsa is so fresh! Make sure you get a good ripe mango for best taste.  It’s great over salad, with chips and my favorite is tucked away in a fish taco. Yum! I like to spice it up with an entire jalapeno but you may want to try it with 1/2 of one first.

Description

This is a very versatile salsa. It’s good on its own, over salad as a dressing, and my favorite way as an accent to fish tacos.  Fresh is the word!


Ingredients

1 ripe mango (sometimes if I can’t find one, I use frozen mango)

1/2 cucumber (peeled if desired) diced

2 c. cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters

1/4 c. jicama cubed (optional but adds a nice crunch)

1/4 c. red onion, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, finely diced

2 basil leaves, finely chopped

1/2 jalapeno, finely diced

1/4 c. cilantro, finely chopped

1 lime, juiced

salt and pepper to taste


Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 min, an hour works best. Serve with tacos, as a salsa, as a dressing over greens. This salsa keeps 1-3 days in the refrigerator.

    Made a great accompaniment to our barbecued cornish game hens for Memorial Day barbeque.
