Fresh Mango Salsa

IMG_7845.jpg

Mangoes are a delicious fruit that are incredibly good for you containing over 20 vitamins and minerals! One cup of mango has 76% of your daily vitamin C, 35% of your vitamin A, and 12% of your daily fiber. Mangoes are also a good source of folate, vitamin B6, and copper. Mangoes can be eaten in a variety of ways and added to many recipes, like in fruit smoothies, on shrimp tacos, in a stir fry, on salads, in yogurt parfait, just plain, or made into a salsa like this recipe. I love making this mango salsa with ripe and juicy mangoes and enjoying it with tortilla chips, on tacos, or on a fresh spinach salad. Add less or more cilantro depending on your acquired taste. I also used Krazy Janes Mixed Up Salt to season the salsa. Use salt or your own spice of choice for flavoring.

  • 3 mangoes

  • 1 red pepper

  • 1/2 red onion

  • 1/2 cup of cilantro

Instructions:

1. Dice up the mango and add to a bowl

2. Chop up the red onion and pepper and add to the bowl with the mango

3. Toss in the cilantro

4. Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mango mixture 

5. Season the mixture with salt and/or spices and stir 

6. Enjoy!
