Fresh mango salsa made with tomatoes and ripe mangoes. Makes a great appetizer or topping for your favorite taco or fajita.
FRESH MANGO SALSA
Pico de gallo also referred to as salsa fresca ('fresh sauce') or salsa cruda ('raw sauce'). Ii is a type of salsa commonly used in Mexican dishes. It is traditionally made from chopped tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro and seasoned with salt, pepper and fresh lime juice.
Pico de gallo can be used in the same way as any type of salsa. Pico de gallo is slightly different from traditional salsas in that it is made with fresh, uncooked ingredients and it contains less liquid. Therefore, is a great snack or side dish served with tortillas as well a delicious topping for tacos and fajitas.
I varied a little bit from traditional Pico de Gallo recipes and added a few other ingredients. I added some fresh mango to my pico de gallo recipe for a touch of sweetness and punch of color. For some crunch, I added chopped English cucumber and I also used green onions (scallions) since I find them to be a bit milder than white or red onions. It came out fantastic! The recipe is very simple and easy to put together. Most of your time will be spend preparing the vegetables.
INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED FOR THE SALSA
ripe mangos – peeled and diced
English cucumber – diced, we used mini-English cucumbers.
grape tomatoes – sliced in half, cherry tomatoes will work great, too.
mixed peppers – chopped, we used red, orange and yellow mixed mini peppers.
fresh cilantro – finely chopped.
green onion – thinly sliced, also known as scallions. You can use sweet white onion instead.
fresh squeezed limes juice
salt and black pepper – to taste
