This Mango Salsa is a medley of flavours that comes from the sweet ripe mangoes and strawberries, crunch from the onions red bell peppers and cucumbers with a hint of spiciness from Jalapenos. Lemon juice balances the much needed tanginess in this Salsa.
Salsa is a Mexican term that means 'sauce'. Salsa is made with tomatoes, Onions and Jalapenos with lot of finely chopped Cilantro with dash of lime juice. 'Salsa' meant a form of dance for me till few years back. I was only when I started exploring various cuisines then only came to now about it's other meaning. The original Salsa resembles so much with the Indian Kachumber Salad. Like Kachumber has it's variations with different salad vegetables, Salsa can also be prepared in many ways using fresh seasonal salad vegetables and fruits.
This is the season of Mangoes and temperatures are rising in most part of the world. This fresh Mango Salsa is just right for the hot summer afternoons or evenings with a bowl of pita chips, nachos. Kids love this fruity salsa and enjoy with their doritos or nacho chips. The hotness element of the this salsa that comes from Jalapenos can be adjusted as per the preferences. Discard the seeds of Jalapenos while adding to salsa to keep the spice level to low, when making for kids. You can skip Jalapenos altogether.
For those who love Indian food, a bowl of salsa goes very nicely with a plain and type of Khichdi also like Yellow Moong Dal Dal and Hari Moong Dal Khichdi or with your ultimate comfort meal Dal Chawal.
We love the combination of Mangoes and Strawberries, and I add strawberries in place of tomatoes. You can add tomatoes to your salsa if you want. The recipe quite adaptable add or omit the ingredients as per your choice.
