Mango and Tomato Salsa

Mango wasn’t a fruit that I recall us ever eating as kids. I remember enjoying local seasonal fruit, especially ones we grew in our home garden.

Yet didn’t have exotic and tropical fruits very often. It wasn’t until I started travelling, and when mango was the local fruit – that I feel in mango love.

Since then I can confidently say it’s my favourite fruit, yet more often than not I simply eat them fresh. And yes, that is plural.

More often than not, I come by case sales on my favourite fruit, so I’ve started making mango recipes such as this Blueberry Mango Smoothie.

Paired with fresh garden tomatoes that are readily available right now, this Mango and Tomato Salsa is my summertime bestie.

Customize your Mango Salsa

Add or omit the spice from the jalapeños if you prefer a milder taste, or have picky kids that don’t like any heat at all. Also I know some aren’t fans of cilantro, so go ahead and omit if you so choose.
