Mango Lime and Red Bell Pepper Salsa

To me, mangos taste like a cross between a peach and a pineapple. They are absolutely delicious when ripe. The bright colors in this recipe make it a great side dish.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 17 minutes


•2 mangoes, peeled, pitted and cut into bite sized chunks

•1 red onion, peeled and diced small

•½ red bell pepper, seeded and diced small

•1/3 cup fresh lime juice

•1 jalapeno or other fresh chile pepper of your choice, minced

•1 tablespoon ground cumin

•3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro

•Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
The salsa will keep covered and refrigerated for 2 days.

Serve with grilled goat cheese tortilla sandwiches
