This week I’ve been hit with a sinus headache. The front and back of my head feel like they’ve been smacked up with a baseball bat. It’s like a neurological exploding party in my brain that pain just happened to be invited to. Nothing seems to offer relief…
until…I ate this Mango Salsa tonight. The lightly spiced salsa is helping me breathe easier and alleviate the vice-gripping pressure I’ve been feeling. It just opened those sinus canals right up! Yay me!
The combination of sweet mango with onions and jalapenos is surprisingly delicious. This mango salsa recipe is so simple and yet incredibly flavorful. If you allow the salsa to sit for a few hours before serving, it intensifies in flavor. (Not quite sure how to cut a mango? Here’s a great step-by-step tutorial here )
If you like the flavor of jalapeno peppers but not the heat, remove the seeds of the jalapenos before adding to the salsa. And if you feel like dressing up the salsa even more…try adding cucumbers, garlic, or even mint!
- 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cubed
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1/3 cup diced red onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons seeded and finely chopped jalapeno
