I was never really into mangoes until my trip to India this past Spring. Their mangoes were absolutely divine (literally!), so now each time I have one it takes me back to my time in India.
1 ripe mango
1/2 small red onion
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno chili (optional, I particularly don't need the spicy kick!)
1/2 cup pineapple
Dash of sea salt
Peel, pit and cut mango into 1/4-inch pieces. (For directions on how to cut a mango, click here) Place mango in blender and blend gently, until the mangoes have a salsa-like consistency. (If you want a chunkier salsa, like the one pictured above, skip the blender step!) Cut pineapple into small chunks. Chop onion, pepper, and fresh cilantro. Mix all ingredients well, adjust seasoning to your liking. Chill to marinate and marry flavors.
Benefits of Mangoes
Mangoes contain powerful antioxidants, are loaded with iron and are low in carbohydrates. Mangoes are effective in relieving clogged pores of the skin. They are also valuable to combat acidity and poor digestion. Mangoes are a rich source of vitamin A (beta-carotene), vitamin E, and selenium which help to protect against heart disease and other ailments.
