Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa is tangy, sweet and spicy. It is a fresh and easy to prepare. Serve it with tortilla chips, on a flour tortilla with grilled chicken and rice, or my favorite way, serve with a French lentil salad.  This salsa is easily adaptable to ingredients you have on hand, add a chopped peach, tomato or nectarine or use lemon juice instead of the lime juice.  Make it your own.

Mango Salsa

3 ripe mangoes
1 medium red bell pepper
½ chopped red onion
½ cup packed fresh cilantro or parsley leaves
½ to 1 jalapeño depending on your heat tolerance
1 large lime, juiced 
Salt to taste

Dice mangoes into ½ inch cubes carefully cutting around large seed.
Chop red pepper and onion into a small dice.
Chop jalapeño into a fine dice.
Rough chop parsley or cilantro.
In a large bowl, combine the chopped mango, bell pepper, onion, cilantro and jalapeño.
Add the lime juice and mix the salsa.
Salt to taste.

Let rest for 30 minutes.
