I have to be honest, when I hear the word "Mango" I can't help but think of the old Saturday night skit....you know....."Don't toucha the Mango." But, the mango is a great fruit loaded with superb qualities. For instance, as evident by the beautiful orange color , the mango has tons of Vitamin A and C. One mango will give you 40% of your daily fiber. For those of you who have a bowl issue, eat up and you will be feeling great! The other great quality of the mango is its tryptophan content. Tryptophan helps to regulate serotonin levels and serotonin is what stabilizes our moods. I am sure NONE of us need this! I don't particularly like the taste of the mango plain, but I sure love it with other ingredients. I love mango salsa especially on my Caribbean tacos, recipe under the recipe label below. It is great on the macadamia nut chicken under My Kitchen Cafe blogsite. It takes such a little bit of time to make but would be great in so many recipes. Try this out. Even my kids love it. It is also great over a brick of cream cheese with crackers for an appetizer. Yummo!
1 medium mango, finely chopped
3 T red onion, finely chopped
2 T roughly chopped cilantro
1 Jalapeno seeded and finely chopped ( I used about 4-5 jarred jalapeno slices)
Juice of one lime.
Combine all together and let chill to blend flavors.
