Description

The zing in this salsa comes from the raw red onion, but you could add even more by including a chopped jalapeño pepper.

Ingredients

2  
mango
1  
bell pepper, red
1  
onion, red (1 small or 1/2 large)
2 tablespoons
lime juice
1 tablespoon
olive oil
1/4 cup
cilantro (optional)

Instructions

Chop the mango into small cubes. Our favorite method is to cut the mango lengthwise around the seed. With each remaining half, carefully slice a grid pattern in the flesh without piercing the skin. Then push the skin inside out to make the cut fruit pop out into little cubes. From there, simply slice the cubes away from the skin. Check out our "How to Cut a Mango" video for more information.

Finely chop the red pepper and onion, then combine with the mango in a medium size bowl. Add lime juice, olive oil, and optional cilantro, then toss together. Taste and season with salt as you wish.

Cover and chill the salsa for several hours or overnight. Serve with chips. This salsa also goes well with fish tacos or roasted chicken.
