Mango Salsa Recipe

It's mango season here in Florida, and that means it's time for mango salsa. It's low calorie and delicious, and it's great with chicken, fish, or just as a great side dish for any meal.

Mango Salsa

1 mango, peeled and chopped fine *see note*
1/2 green pepper, chopped fine
1 tablespoon jalapeno, chopped fine
1/2 small red onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in refrigerator for at least two hours before eating, so that all the tastes meld together. It's better if you leave it overnight.

*you may need to wear gloves when peeling the mango and chopping the jalapeno. Many people have an allergic reaction the oils in the mango's skin, and it can give you a nasty burn. The jalapeno can be transferred easily to tender areas such as eyes if it gets on your skin, so be careful with both of them. Wash hands thoroughly after chopping, even if you do use gloves.*
