Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa is one of the easiest most delicious recipes you are going to make this summer. Be careful who you serve it to, they are likely to fall madly and uncontrollably in love with you. This Mango Salsa recipe is that good!

The thing you need to watch out for when making this Mango Salsa is the level of sweetness. If the mangoes are very ripe, the sweetness can become a little overwhelming. The cucumber is a great way to bring a little balance and also add that extra crunch.

This Mango Salsa is delicious with chips and your favorite guacamole (Abuela’s Guacamole we hope), or served with grilled fish, roasted chicken. Please see Ina Garten for the perfect Roast Chicken.

Now let’s salsa!
