Mango Salsa

Ree did a cooking lesson post in which she swears up and down over this mouth watering, man pleasing, can't live without sandwich. Immediately I knew I wanted to try this sandwich, not just because it looked yummy to me, but because I also wanted to really please my man. I usually only show you guys his scruffy side (wouldn't want anyone getting jealous). Usually he has a five day shadow, or some new goatee he's trying out. But he still makes me melt when I look in those bad boy blues. Joey's eyes So I made him THE sandwich...two days in a row. It was that good. Last night I made her Chicken Spaghetti Casserole and I have to say it was another hit! Trust her when she says to take it easy on the cayenne! It made such a huge amount that I was able to dish it into two separate casserole dishes, cooking one, and freezing the other. I don't even have a big enough oven in the bus to cook a casserole that size, so it turned out great being able to prepare two suppers at once.

Ree also makes her pico de gallo the same as me, so I thought I'd share with you a little twist to it that I do, perfect for those hot summer days. Mango Salsa.

There's only four ingredients mango salsa 003 Tropical Fruit Salad, Jalapenos, green onions, and cilantro. How easy can you get?

Unlike Ree, I de seed the jalapeno, and use green onions instead of white

After everything diced nice and small, have your cute helpers with the little fingers hold the bowl while you scoop it all in.

Be sure to drain the fruit, and then dice it up real good, too.

Sprinkle some salt and pepper, stir, and serve with tortilla chips.

It makes a nice garnish for spicy rubbed pork, too.

Thanks for the post. It's hot where I am; and sticky humid. Some nice new dishes could just help the situation. Well, a new dish maybe served on a big fat fan.

I like Ree and I also like mango salsa. Mine is a smidge different, and I actually was planning to make some tomorrow. Perhaps it will be a post! :)
Anyway, mine is diced mango (either from frozen or fresh) , diced cucumber, diced green onion, cilantro and 1 seeded jalapeno. OMG, I can eat it until I am sick. :) The canned fruit one sounds like a good alternative when I cant get good mangoes. :)
