Mango and Tomato Salsa

Mango wasn’t a fruit that I recall us ever eating as kids. I remember enjoying local seasonal fruit, especially ones we grew in our home garden.

Yet didn’t have exotic and tropical fruits very often. It wasn’t until I started travelling, and when mango was the local fruit – that I feel in mango love.

Since then I can confidently say it’s my favourite fruit, yet more often than not I simply eat them fresh. And yes, that is plural.

More often than not, I come by case sales on my favourite fruit.

So I’ve started making mango recipes such as this Blueberry Mango Smoothie.

Customize your Mango Salsa

Add or omit the spice from the jalapeno pepper if you prefer a milder taste, or have picky kids that don’t like any heat at all. The important thing is the ingredients, not the specific amounts.

Also I know some aren’t fans of fresh cilantro, so go ahead and omit if you so choose. or just use less and smaller pieces.
