Recently I bought some mangoes for a treat for us, but to my disappointment, I discovered they were too sour to eat by themselves. I recalled the fact that I’d seen a recipe at some point for mango salsa and thought I’d look it up online. I found several recipes, but thought the combination of ingredients sounded a bit weird. My husband, however, thought I should at least give it a try. I picked one recipe that seemed the closest to what I wanted and then made it up to my own needs and tastes. So, here’s the basic “plan”:
Finely chopped mango (1 and half small mangos made about 2 servings.)
Snipped green onion
Red pepper flakes
A little snipped cilantro
(Add a little sugar if the mango is still too sour – but – add it only a tiny bit at a time or you may get too much. If your mangos seem too sweet, you may want to add a touch of lemon juice to add tartness.)
This salsa is good served with meat. I think it would be especially good with pork. It would be a zippy sauce to make a non-traditional hamburger topping. :-) And, an added perk is the lovely color this adds to a meal!
