The Mango Salsa of Your Dreams

The Mango Salsa of Your Dreams

While you can get mangoes all year long, we think they are best in the summer months. Throwing together a delicious mango-jicama salsa to eat with chips, on fish or with delicious chicken, seems like a good idea. On a lunch run to Whole Foods, we grabbed some ready-made to eat with our favorite chicken drumsticks tonight. It's pretty easy to make yourself too. Give yourself 10-15 minutes and follow the below recipe from Food.com. We've slightly modified it to give you more scrumptious taste options. If you are worried about how to actually chop a mango, fear not. Watch the funny Alton Brown video. Be warned -it contains fake blood, so if you are squeamish, fast forward to the end to see the best way to slice and dice a mango.

MANGO-JICAMA SALSA
SERVINGS 4-6

1⁄2 cup ripe mango, diced
1⁄2 cup jicama, diced
1 Roma tomato, diced
2 tablespoons lime juice, freshly-squeezed
2 tablespoons orange juice, freshly-squeezed (Note: We think this can be optional.)
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1⁄2-1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
Optional: 1 cup red onion, diced (about 1 medium red onion)
Optional: If you forgo the OJ, you can throw in ½ cup kiwi, diced (about 2 kiwis)
salt (to taste)

DIRECTIONS
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for about 2 hours before chowing down.
