Summer Mango Salsa

So it's not quite summer but we've had some great weather.  I love making salsa and I don't have a specific "recipe".  I usually throw in a little of this and a little of that.  It is really something that you can change up each time and usually have good results.  The best is when you can use your tomatoes and peppers picked from the garden or a local farmer's market.  I like to use a variety of peppers but this recipe I just used jalapenos.

Summer Mango Salsa
3 large tomatoes
1/2 red onion
1 mango
2-3 jalapeno peppers (include seeds for more heat)
juice from one lemon or lime
1 T. vinegar (I used rice wine vinegar)
1 T. oil
1 T. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Dice the tomatoes, onion, and peppers and add to large bowl.  You can save your seeds from the jalapenos and add more later if needed.  Here is a good video how to cut your mango.  Add the mango to the bowl and add remaining ingredients.  Mix well and add salt and pepper. 

Here are some other add-ins that we like....
sweet corn
black beans
peaches or pineapple instead of mango
