The sweet and sour taste is a good combination to serve with spicy Mexican food.
Last night was a Mexican food night, I made green spanish rice, and homemade beans topped with melted cheese and roasted chicken achiote.
I made my own version of this delicious salsa, I would have made it spicier, but the family cannot handle a lot of spicy food at the same time.
.2 cups fresh chopped mango
.1/2 chopped Anaheim chili pepper
.4 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
.1 medium chopped shallot
.3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
..1 tbsp. chopped green onion
.1/2 tbsp. salt
.1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
.1 tbsp. lime zest
.1/2 tbsp. olive oil
.1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
In a large bowl, add chopped mango, Anaheim chili, shallot, green onion, salt, cayenne pepper, lime zest, lime juice, and olive oil, mix well and set aside to marinades.
Before serving, mix in the chopped fresh parsley and chopped fresh cilantro. Enjoy!

This sounds amazing. I would have never thought of this combination, mango, chili pepper and onion! My parents grow mango in their garden (not in London obviously…), I will forward them the recipe!
Thanks!! Yes it sounds odd but its so delicious, I highly recommend this dish!
I had this at my friends place.
Begged her for the recipe but she was adamant and didn’t want to share it with me. (I know!! Weird!)
Finally, so happy to get my hands on this.
I hope I don’t mess it up 😀
