Twenty Dollar Tuesdays is usually reserved for helpful hints and decorating ideas. But…I’ve decided I’m going to give you a recipe today (Because I’m just that WILD!). I am NOT a mango eater. I usually think they taste like iced tea in fruit form…BUT a year or so ago, I ordered a crab cake at one of my favorite restaurants and it came with mango salsa. This stuff was AMAZING and was the perfect compliment to the crab cake. So, a few weeks ago, when I decided to make crab cakes, I thought to myself “Kate, you could pretend you work at a fancy restaurant and whip some of that mango salsa right on up”. And so I did! It was my first time working with mangos (and I confirmed that I STILL do not like them in non-salsa form), and it turned out great! I’ve made it several times since then and I just love it! It’s great with meats, with chips, and tonight I had it with a veggie quesadilla. YUM!
So why am I including this in Twenty Dollar Tuesdays, you ask? Well friends, I think if you have a recipe that is this versatile, well, it’s worth at least $20! So, without further ado, Mango Salsa:
*2-3 mangos, diced
*1 bunch of green onions, diced
*1/4 cup or so of cilantro, diced
*juice of one lime
*(optional) red or green pepper, diced
Combine and add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
