Mother-in-law’s Mango Salsa

26 Jun

   There are somewhere around three million reasons why my mother-in-law is amazing. She’s wise, loving, inspiring, and her mango salsa rocks. The best part about this recipe is that it is inherently paleo–no weird substitutions are necessary! I love when that happens.  It’s great on grilled salmon, chicken or flank steak, as a cottage cheese topping, or even plain with a spoon. May it become a summer time staple for you too.

Thanks, Lynn!

                                   

Ingredients
4 mangoes, diced
1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
1 large or 2 small jalapeños, seeded and finely diced
3/4 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice

Combine all ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste. I use a mini chopper which causes the texture to be a bit mushy. If you prefer a more solid salsa, dice the fruit with a knife instead. May be served chilled, room temperature, or warmed. Experiment with the ratio of ingredients to your liking. Some days call for more jalapeño, while others call for less mango and more pineapple!

Enjoy,

Heather

*Mangoes and pineapples are deliciously sweet. They both have great nutritional benefits but are a bit high on the glycemic scale. Like most things in life, enjoy in moderation!

    Thanks for the “shout out”!! I feel honored that you would share my recipe on your blog. The mango salsa has always been a favorite of mine and I’m so glad it works in with your eating lifestyle. (And I think you’re pretty amazing yourself!! For all those years I looked forward to having a daughter-in-law, now I’m finding out first hand what a blessing it is. Love and hugs to you.)

    Wonderful! I will definitely be making this soon – I don’t seem to have the problem with lots of fruit that other Paleo-ers out there have (weight gain or cravings) so I’m delighted to see this!!
