Zesty Mango Salsa

We love all types of salsa and enjoy trying out new versions to eat all Summer long.  This was inspired by my mother-in-law as she made this one summer and we’ve continued making it since then.  The great thing about any salsa is you can tailor it to your tastes by adding more jalapeno, chili powder, etc. The citrus and cilantro combination can be served as an appetizer with chips or can be the finishing touch to grilled fish. 

This zesty mango salsa is a favorite in our house that’s versatile for weekday snacking or weekend entertaining.  Whenever mangos go on sale, this dish is a must.
