Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

My 152nd recipe, “Mango Salsa”, a Cinco De Mayo special. Cinco De Mayo which literally translates to 5th of May in Spanish, is celebrated in United States and Mexico. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Even though I live in Texas, which is very close to Mexico as well, I was not aware of Cinco De Mayo until I heard about it on Food Network recently. But soon enough, I too wanted to be part of the celebrations by making and enjoying a delicious Mexican dish. The 2 dishes that immediately come to my mind when you say Mexican cuisine is Quesadilla and Chips n Salsa. I love both of them. Since I haven’t posted a salsa recipe yet, it was not hard enough for me to choose. While regular salsa is very delicious, it does not have a lot of color. In my books it is not vibrant enough to book a ticket for the celebration. So instead of making just a regular salsa, I chose to do a mango salsa instead. The mango adds a slight sweetness to the salsa and paired with the tang from the lime and spiciness from the jalapenos, it was truly a treat for my taste buds. And the bright and vibrant colors in this mango salsa makes it the perfect candidate for any celebration 😉

wow!! the pic is awesome. You have got great food photographing skills. Never heard of salsa with mango. Sure the red bell peppers and jalapenos add a spicy hot taste to sweet mango chunks. Crunchiness from onion and tanginess from lime makes the mango bites even yummier. Loved the salsa in whole and waiting for summer to make this salsa. Easy and yummy yet tangy Recipe!!
