Mango Cucumber SalsaΒ serves a bunch of people

5-6 decent sized Ataulfo or Haden mangos Β (ripe ones, definitely not hard)

1 long english cucumber

4 juicy vine ripened tomatoes

1/2 red onion

1 bunch of cilantro chopped finely

drizzle of balsamic vinegar

1-2 tbsp of olive oil

juice of one lime

salt and pepper to taste

*a small chile diced up with or without the seeds if you want some spice (seeds in will make it even spicier FYI)

Dice up the mangoes (after peeling), tomatoes, cucumber and red onion into small pieces and add into a large bowl. With the mangoes – try to save as much of the juice from all of them as you can and add that to the bowl as well (it will be all over your cutting board and hands presumably). Next chop up your washed cilantro as fine as possible (I use an entire bunch each time) and toss it in with the fruit and veggies.

Then drizzle a bit of olive oil (around 1-2 tbsp), some balsamic vinegar (not much, maybe .5-1 tbsp) and the juice of your lime over your salsa. Add a dash of salt and pepper, mix it all up and have a taste. If you want to add the spice via the chile pepper you would dice it up very finely and add it to the mix…toss it all together and have another taste and see if you want a little more balsamic, or oil or salt and pepper. You get to choose because it’s your salsa! After you’ve mixed it all together, put it in the fridge to marinate for an hour or more before serving.
