Mango Salsa

1B6EA128-6EBB-4727-B386-C7404BFB7D33This week, I wanted to try and bring lighter flavors into my dishes. I decided to alter my homemade salsa recipe to include one of my favorite fruits, mangos!! When I was doing my grocery shopping this week, I was so happy to see that mangos were on sale. Not only are they delicious, but you can do so much with them! This salsa recipe is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy! I am going to share two different preparations depending on how you’d like to utilize this salsa!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Ingredients:
2 tomatoes on the vine finely chopped
1 1/2 jalapeños finely chopped
1 mango cubed
1/4 red onion finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 lime (squeezed for juice)
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
1 tsp olive oil

Directions:

Chunky salsa preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2. In a roasting pan, put 1 tsp olive oil on the two tomatoes and roast for 15 minutes.
3. Carefully remove the tomatoes and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
4. Once cooled, chop the tomato and place it in a medium sized bowl.
5. Add the chopped jalapeños, red onion, cilantro and cubed mango to the bowl.
6. Squeeze half a lime into the bowl. Then, add a pinch of salt and pepper. Using a spoon mix all ingredients together.
7. Place in the fridge covered, until ready to serve.

Smooth salsa preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2. In a roasting pan, put 1 tsp olive oil on the two tomatoes and roast for 15 minutes.
3. Carefully remove the tomatoes and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
4. Once cooled, roughly curt the tomato and place it in a food processor.
5. Add the chopped jalapeños, red onion, cilantro and cubed mango to the food processor
6. Squeeze half a lime into the processor. Then, add a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse until your desired texture is achieved.
7. Place in the fridge covered, until ready to serve.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even do a combo of both preparations (pictured above)!

My name is Lauren and I'm the creator of Inspire Me, Gluten Free! I'm here to help YOU get more comfortable in the kitchen! How? Great question; with the art of meal prepping! I'm not talking the boring prep that leaves you wanting more halfway into the week. I plan delicious versions of classic and unique gluten-free meals. Originally, I started meal prepping as a means to manage my budget and my waist line. What I didn't realize was just how much money I was saving monthly, because I was buying less and wasn't wasting money on unused or spoiled food. Choosing fresh ingredients helped me consistently lose 1-2 pounds a week. I had more time in the mornings/evenings, because I wasn't having to cook during the work week. All of these benefits made a world of difference in my life and they can do the same for YOU! Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or financial advisor.
