Indian Mango Salsa

There are hundreds of varieties of mangoes, but this sweet and spicy salsa uses the Kesar variety from India (where it is known as the queen of mangoes). Kesar mangoes are intensely sweet and only available for a few weeks each year. If you can get your hands on some, use them — they’re so delicious — but any ripe mango will work. 

Ingredients

  • 4 Kesar mangoes (or 4 small, sweet mangoes of another variety), diced small
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced small
  • ½ small red onion, diced small
  • 2 small jalapeno peppers, minced
  • ¼ Cup cilantro leaves and stems, rinsed, dried, and chopped
  • Juice of 4 Key limes (or 1-2 regular limes)
  • Pinch of curry powder
  • Pinch of salt (if needed)

Directions

Combine the diced mango, bell pepper, and red onion in a bowl. Add the minced jalapeño and chopped cilantro leaves and stir to combine.

Pour just enough lime juice over the salsa to coat all of the fruits and vegetables. Add the curry powder and stir to combine.

Let the salsa sit for 10 minutes and then taste it, adding salt, if desired.
