Mango salsa

I was introduced to Salsa by my hubby in 1996 when we were still in the states.  He made a bowl of salsa when we invited my good friend and his lovely wife Linda to our home for dinner one evening.  However, he did not put any mango. When I made it myself, I always put mango and I find that the mango enhanced the flavor more. Oh for those who like it a little more spice, add some Tabasco sauce. I love salsa and find it a very refreshing appetizer and it can vet up a appetite for the main course.

We usually serve salsa with Corn chips as an appetizer but tonight I am going to use it as a topping for pork burger. 


3 plum tomatoes diced
½ mango diced
1 cup choped parsley
½ red capsicum diced
½ yellow capsicum diced
½ orange capsicum diced
½ lemon (squeezed out the juice)
2 tb extra virgin olive oil
½  medium white onion diced
1 ts sugar
Salt and black pepper to taste


In a big bowl put all the above ingredient together and mix well and put it into fridge for at least 1 hour before serving. It taste better eating cold.
