Mango Salsa

Sometimes in the winter you need a tropical escape, and since not all of us can book an ocean view cabin on a Carnival cruise ship on a whim maybe something tropically delicious can suffice. My mango salsa is usually a treat that I only make for Christmas as a dressing for fried fish but it was so popular this year that I decided to write a post on it to share with everyone. This salsa can be made any number of ways with any kind of fruit that's in season or you could even create your own combo of vegetables. My family also uses it as a dressing for salad in lieu of traditional salad dressing. This is one of the easiest, tastiest things anyone could make. I think this can be a great recipe addition to any healthy new years resolution eating plan. From my home to yours...Enjoy!

Mango Salsa

1 mango (just ripened), cut small dice
3 tomatoes, peeled and cut small dice
1 red onion, cut small dice
6 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
3 bell peppers, small dice
juice of one lemon or lime
2 Tbsp grapeseed or canola oil

- Place large saute pan under medium heat and when hot add in oil.
- When oil shimmers place garlic and onion in the pan and simmer until onion is no longer opaque.
- Now add in peppers and saute for 2 minutes.
- Immediately add in tomatoes and saute for another 1-2 minutes,  finally add in mangoes and lemon juice.
- Finish with salt and pepper.
