Simple Mango Salsa

Simple Mango Salsa (@alyssarimmer)

Since moving to New York City, my eyes have been opened to the wonderful world of Trader Joe's. The asiles of organic, fairly price food amazes me. Kale, spinach, broccoli, carrots, apples, bananas, blueberries, chicken, fish, nuts and quinoa. Even chia seeds, coconut oil, stevia, maple syrup and gluten-free oats. Every staple of my diet. I don't know how they do it.

Each week I try to find something new and last week it was mangos.

And thanks to you, I whipped up this simple mango salsa.

You see, with two perfect mangos getting ripe on my counter, I felt like I wanted to make something special. I could tell from the smell, these babies were going to be sweet, succulent and juicy. But I also didn't have a lot of time on my hands. I needed something quick and easy.

What better way to get recipe inspiration then from you all? I asked you what I should make on Facebook, and mango salsa won by landslide.

So that's what I set off to make. A simple mango salsa, that's effortlessly easy to make, requires only a few ingredients and adds a sweet surprise to any Mexican inspired meal. We served ours over shredded chicken tostadas (don't worry, that recipe will be coming soon!), and it was sensational.

What I love most about this dish, aside from its simplicity,  is the balance of flavors. The tang from the lime juice, only serves to enhance the sweetness of the mangos. But it's the spicy crunch from the red onions and the dash of sriracha that sends this salsa over the edge. Starting with a trip to the tropics, the journey ends with the mild heat that Latin American cuisine so desperately needs.

I'm in love with this salsa.
