Mango Salsa

Sometimes grilled chicken sounds so boring and unappetizing to me. BUT, bring mango salsa into the picture and it's a whole different story.  I love this stuff.  It adds a lot of color and flavor pizzazz (I just made that term up) to grilled chicken.  

I went camping in the desert last night for the first time.  It was an adventure, to say the least.  A fun and sleepless adventure.  I took marinated chicken to grill and this mango salsa.  It made for an easy and delicious camping dinner: just throw the chicken on the grill, top with a huge mound of mango salsa, and enjoy while sitting on the beautiful beach.  Perfect.   

I didn't give super exact amounts in the recipe below.  You can make this the way you like and use more or less of certain ingredients depending on your tastes and preferences.  The ingredients are all so good, you really can't go wrong!     

  • 2 large ripe mangoes, diced  
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced 
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper 

Combine mangoes, red peppers, red onion, and cilantro.  

Add lime juice and drizzle with olive oil.  

Add salt and pepper to taste.   

Serve on top of grilled chicken and cous cous, if so desired.
