We really do love mango.
I'm not certain what it is about this fruit that is so enticing.
Maybe it's their beautiful color!
Seriously! Look at the picture! The yellow, green, red, and orange . . .
And they can sometimes be a little expensive.
But not necessarily in the summer.
That's when the mangos are the best!
Yesterday, the girl cherub and I bought a box of mangos.
Now, we like mango . . .but my boy cherub is the one who really digs mango!
But he's not at home this summer.
So with that in mind, I needed to come up with some things to make with our many mangos.
One of the things I want to try is mango agua fresco.
I think it would taste great!
But until I figure out how to do that, I want to share with you the recipe for mango salsa that my girl cherub made.
The Mr. and my boy cherub are gone, so we girls made fish tacos for dinner.
Topped with mango salsa.
She looked at different recipes and discovered they were all about the same. She really went by taste and the quantities are an estimate . . .except for the mango!
We thought it was a hit!
It was not only delicious on the fish tacos, but it was also tasty on the salty corn chips!
Enjoy the sweet-ripened mango this summer!
1 mango, peeled and chopped
1/4 of a red onion, finely diced

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Make adjustments as your taste buds direct!
