Mango Salsa

A multi-purpose dish – salad, appetiser or serve as a spicy accompaniment to many dishes.

Mangos are one of my favourite fruit. Growing up in a cool climate, we did not have mango when I was young. Later, while doing the Aussie travelling thing, I spent a few months in India where I ate mango every day. I plan to do the same when I return to a hot climate.
As a sweet, soft fruit mango are a wonderful dessert or afternoon snack. Here, they show their diversity as a salsa, a Mexican spicy sauce. The sweet, savoury and spicy flavours all compliment each other. The result is good with fish, prawns, grilled meats or a vegetarian nut or bean dish; and it makes a good snack with pappadums.
