DIY: Mango Salsa

We love Mango Salsa.

It's good with chips, over fish, on appetizers...we could eat it with anything! As with most of our food, we hand-make our mango salsa. That way, our chef's make sure that you are getting the best quality for your food. It looks better and tastes better than other salsas from a can.

Mango Salsa
Lou Crandall, Savory Catering
makes approx 2 3/4 cup or 24 oz.

2 regular mangoes or 4 Ataulfo (champagne) mangoes, peeled, seeded and medium diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced small
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
2 TBLS lime juice
1 TBLS cider vinegar
2 TBLS fresh cilantro, chopped fine
salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tsp sugar (or to taste)
*optional 2 tsp. Fruit fresh or Everfresh to preserve color

Combine together all ingredients and let chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to blend flavors.

Salsa looks best when made the same day, resist keeping overnight.

Mango Salsa

Not many people like to mention their obsessions, but we proudly declare that we are
 addicted to Mango Salsa.

We hand-make our mango salsa and sometimes we can't get enough of it! It looks beautiful on the plate with bright yellows, reds, and greens. Our favorite ways to eat it is also the easiest- serving it with salty tortilla chips. The salt of the tortilla chips pairs well with the sweet taste of the salsa.  It's also a nice topping for meats, including fish, chicken, and duck.

 Big, juicy chunks of mango are complimented by smaller, crunchy red bell pepper chunks.

 Including different colored chips with the mango salsa is a fun way to add color and flavor.

 Mango salsa is great for cocktail hour, buffets, and appetizers

 The mango salsa goes well with fish! This is a breaded tilapia with a serving of 
brightly colored mango salsa.

One of the great things about our mango salsa is that it is great all year and for many different occasions: it works great with casual parties or as a topping for a fancy dinner. Whatever the occasion, make sure you add our Mango Salsa!
