mango salsa

I have been enjoying a mango salsa vinagrette that our local grocery store has.  My thought was, "I can make this."  It was really about making a mango salsa.  The salsa turned out well.  I really do not need to make it into a vinagrette but instead of a basic vinagrette, I am thinking about putting some honey and mustard into it.  Or maybe a few pinches of ancho and chipolte.  It just needs something.  But we have been eating the salsa on everything.

Our salads recently have been tostadas without the tortilla.  Lettuce, beans, salsa.  Sometimes cheese.  Sometimes a dressing.  They are actually very simple but this salsa add a nice complexity.  I really like fruit salsas.  The Tall Short Person does not.  My Beloved likes this when I mix a small teaspoon of ghost pepper salsa through it.  Talk about a kick!  The funny thing is I am going to have to make some more soon and the recipe will probably change just because!

mango salsa

two mangos, peeled, pitted, and sliced into small bits

two large tomatoes or four fist size, sliced into about the same size as the mango

one jalopeno pepper, seeded, cored, and diced

half onion, peeled, and chopped

half a head of garlic, minced

salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning.

I keep it in a quart jar in the refrigerator and use by very large tablespoons.
