Mango (#7)

A few weeks ago I bought a whole box of amazing Taiwan mangoes. They are one of my favorite fruits here, especially for my morning smoothies! Today I put some in my fresh salsa (as a friend had suggested), and it was deee-licious! It's one of the easiest things in the world to make as long as you're up from some chopping. Incidentally, planning meals is one of my 30 before 30. I try to buy good fresh ingredients at the beginning of the week that I can hopefully use in a variety of ways. It is a challenge because it is so fast, cheap, and easy to eat out here, especially when you're cooking for one. But if anyone wants to try it out, here is how I made it today:

1 medium mango
1 medium red onion (you can use regular onion)
3 cloves of garlic
3 bunches of fresh cilantro
3-4 large ripe tomaotoes
Lime juice (or lemon)
Chop it all and put it in the fridge.
After about an hour the flavors will mingle together quite nicely, and it'seven better the next day! The proportions depend on your taste, so feel free to add more or less of what you want. Actually maybe I would add even more mango next time! When I've made it before without mango, I also sprinkle some cumin powder on it. Easy, right?
