Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa is a delicious variation of traditional salsa. It goes well with many things. Our favorite use for it is as an accompaniment for grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks. A complete meal, pictured below, is grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa, Wild Rice blend and steamed fresh Broccoli.

A simple Salsa recipe, you will need two Mangoes, two Carrots, two Serrano peppers, two cloves of Garlic, two or three vine ripened Tomatoes, one shallot, one Lime and one bunch of Cilantro.

Peel and seed the Mangoes, chop the Carrots, seed the peppers, quarter the Tomatoes and chop the Shallot. Put all ingredients in a food processor including the Cilantro. Add the juice of the Lime and drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the mix. Secure the top of the food processor and pulse until chunky. Serve over grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks with Wild Rice blend and fresh steamed Broccoli. Enjoy!
