Mango Salsa

Mango’s are in season right now!

Mango’s are high in Vitamin C (46% DV), Vitamin A (25% DV), and polyphenolic flavonoids which are protective against oral and lung cancers. 

 If you can chop you can make this dish so delicious a final picture was impossible!

Just follow the rules of three to make this mouthwatering dish, best made three hours or a day ahead of time for the flavors to really meld and come out.

Chop mango by cutting halves to either side of the seed and then scoring 1/2 in sections along both the length and width. Push skin up and run a knife underneath to cut off mango sections.

I suggest adding the avocado just before serving. Cut avocado in halves and score into a grid, squeeze flesh out in a bowl and soak with lemon or lime juice before stirring in.
