Mango Salsa

The word salsa though conjures up an image of a tomato based one, there are varieties of salsa that do not use tomato. The word 'salsa' is the Spanish term for 'sauce' which in turn comes from Latin meaning salty. One of the non-tomato based salsa happens to be this spicy, sweet mango salsa that goes well with nachos, burritos, burgers to name a few. This interesting salsa is a perfect addition for summer gatherings when you find ripe mangoes in abundance. This vibrant colored salsa is also used as a garnish on grilled fish / chicken according to wiki. Chose ripe but yet firm mangoes to prepare this salsa.

1 cup peeled and cubed ripe mango
2 tbsp. finely chopped red onion
1/2 or 1 jalapeno chile, finely minced (Adjust according to the spice level preferred.)
2 tbsp. finely minced cilantro
1 to 2 tbsp. lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste 

* Combine mango cubes, onion, chile and cilantro in a bowl.
* Sprinkle salt and pepper and squeeze lemon / lime juice into the bowl. Toss the bowl to combine.
* Adjust the seasonings if needed and chill for few minutes before serving.
