Mango Salsa


  • 1 ripe mango
  • ¼ t minced shallot
  • ½ red bell pepper minced
  • 2 T slivered cilantro, basil or mint
  • ½ t ground cumin
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice, ½ lime
  • Salt to taste

Put all the salsa ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.

Kitchen Note: A mango has a large, thin, oblong pit which can be confusing to remove. Do not peel first. If you do not have a mango pitter, first cut off the two sides of the fruit from the pit. Remove the fruit from the peel by making a checkerboard pattern in the flesh with a sharp knife. Turn the peel and flesh inside out, then cut the fruit off the peel into chunks.


Skills: chopping, combining, tasting for balance

Equipment: chopping knife
