This is one irresistibly sweet, spicy, and packed full of flavor dip that is super simple to make and outrageously flexible in the meals and sides it can go with!
I will not bore you with one of those long, drawn-out stories on how I found this recipe and let you try to skim or scroll through my words a mile down to get to the recipe at the bottom. I WILL let you know I have made this recipe at least a dozen times as it is a crowd-pleaser no matter if you bring it as a main dish or an appetizer.
"Its got so much flavor and color, its like a confetti pop in your mouth" - My Mema
I initially tried this recipe as a healthy alternative to the hoards of salsa and chips I would consume regularly. I didn't anticipate how much the recipe could make and when you double it, boy, does it make a lot.
I digress; this goes excellent on blackened fish tacos, a few layers in your seven-layer dip, a topping on your turkey burgers with avocado spread, or just a good 'ol fashion dip.
3 ripe mangos, diced
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced ( salsa is still good with or without)
1 large lime, juiced (about 1/4 cup lime juice)
1/8- 1/4 teaspoon salt to taste
(SIDE NOTE: I will add a can of rinsed black beans, 1 cup of corn and 1 large avocado for extra flavor)
Grab a cutting board and prepare your diced mango and chopped red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro.
Put prepared veggies in a medium to large mixing bowl.
Cut lime in half and use a hand juicer or spoon to juice lime. (You can also use pre-juiced lime juice that you bought at the grocery store. I get it; getting lime in that cut on your finger is no laughing matter.)
Once you have juiced the lime, drizzle it over your veggies in the bowl, and with a large mixing spoon, stir ingredients together till well mixed. Add salt till seasoned to your liking. For the best flavor, let the salsa sit for ten minutes.
Storage for leftovers; if you didn't add avocado and have any leftovers (id be surprised if not everyone ate this up), I cover the bowl, and it will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.
