Mango Salsa

I was raised in South Florida, where we enjoyed plenty of fresh tropical fruits. While this salsa is good for snacking with chips, I'll often serve it on fresh fish, which is plentiful here, too.

    I modified this recipe a bit (a habit of mine) & it turned out awesome. I added a can of pineapple tidbits (big can), a big can of mild green, diced chiles and 2 green onions, diced. No babies here so I made my own mango baby food and used that, instead of store bought.I also used diced green, red, yellow and orange peppers (not quite 1/4 cup of each). It made a huge batch, so I gave some to my neighbors. It turned out very good. I sliced, and cooked, some sweet italian sausage links to serve with the salsa. Yummy!

    We love this recipe in our home, and look forward to making it every summer. It is so refreshing. It is always a HIT at any get together.

    I make my mango salso without baby food, bell peppers, olive oil, sugar, or lime peel. I just use mango (and/or peach), tomato, jalepeno pepper, garlic (or powder), onion, cilantro, and fresh lime juice.
