The Easiest Mango Salsa You Will Ever Make
HI! EVERYONE! How is it going? How was your summer? Mine was great, and though, I am sad to see it come to an end, we can celebrate with a “SUMMER” recipe to carry out the feeling of summer. Say hello the “The Easiest Mango Salsa You Will Ever Make”. I am serious when I say this is easy. The hardest part is the little bit of prep work that needs to be done before you put everything in a food processor. After that, it’s a piece of cake!
Here is a little back story to this recipe. The first time I made this salsa, I chopped everything by hand. I spent all night dicing the ingredients into perfect little cubes. It made this amazing chunky mango salsa that was Pinterest perfect, but it was a pain in the ass chopping the ingredients into little cubes. After doing that once, I decided there had to be an easier solution. Then, I thought to throw it all in a food processor and call it a day. By all means, if you want to spend time dicing ingredients into little cubes then go ahead, but I prefer a low maintenance mango salsa.
For this salsa, I used frozen mango because it is so much more convenient than buying fresh (Trader Joe’s sells a great organic option). It can often be difficult to get perfectly ripe mangos at the grocery store, and pealing them isn’t fun either. Using frozen mango allows you to make this salsa without having to wait for the mango to ripen, so you can have mango salsa whenever you want.
Paired with tortilla chips, this salsa makes a great snack. It also tastes out of this world topped on your seafood of choice. My personal favorite way to eat it is with tortilla chips from Siete Foods. Their tortilla chips are made of cassava flour (taro root), which is a nutrient rich root vegetable that is native to South America. Cassava is high in vitamin C, Folate, and Potassium. It is also considered a resistant starch, which is beneficial to feed the “good” bacteria in your colon (1)! The cassava flour gives the chips a nice crispy texture and also is an excellent grain-free alternative to traditional tortilla chips. These chips are fried in avocado oil, which is honestly my favorite part. It is so difficult to find chips that are not fried in carcinogenic canola oil or other industrial seed oils. They are a bit pricey because of the high-quality ingredients they are made of, but so worth it.
Going to a social event any time soon? I make this salsa for parties, and it is always a crowd favorite! So make this salsa for yourself, but also share it with friends, because it hits all of your bases. It is easy to make, it is healthy, and it is really tasty. Enjoy!
