We're having a Father's Day party tomorrow. The theme is "Hawaiian Get-a-way."
To go along with the theme, I made mango salsa. Mango is Hawaiian, isn't it? How about tortilla chips? I guess anything can be Hawaiian if served by a person wearing a coconut bra!
This recipe was given to my mother and she gave it to me. I tweeked it just a little bit. Here are the ingredients: tomatoes, mangos, onion, lime juice, jalapenos, cilantro, garlicThis is how I made it today. You can make more or less, depending on how much you need.
2 mangos - ripe
8 roma tomatoes - you can use any kind of tomato, it's best when the tomato comes right out of your garden.
1 1/2 sweet onions
2 jalapenos (seeded)
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 bunch cilantro
3 Tablespoons lime juice
Peel the mangos, cut the fruit from the seed and pulse in a blender. Don't blend too much, you still want chunks. You can use as much or as little cilantro as you want. I LOVE cilantro. Am I the only one? Chop the cilantro, the tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. The first time I made this, I used the jalapeno seeds. It was TOO HOT! Not even a walk in the woods would cool it down! Maybe you like the hot taste. I have been accused of only waving the jalapeno over the salsa. You decide, but remember, it's much easier to add more jalapeno than to take some out. Add lime juice and stir well.
This made 8 cups of salsa. You can eat it right away, or let it savor in the fridge for a few hours. Eat it with chips or put on eggs...or have a luau! (There may not be the full 8 cups for the party tomorrow.)
