Mango Salsa- What a sweet, sour and spicy way to serve the king of fruits! Though I ususally don’t do off season fruits, this is one fruit which keeps making its way into my pantry long after the season ends, thanks to the super markets which stock it even in September. I made amrakhand using mango pulp in my previous post of 30 days salad series and was left with two more . This salsa was suggested by one my friends few days back (who by the way is an amazing cook herself) and when I slightly googled more about it, found a recipe at Cookie and Kate with almost all the ingredients I had at hand. This salsa brings out or rather compliments the flavours of all the ingredients so well, and the generous garnish of fresh coriander is like icing on the cake. Do try this salad as a dip for your chips and nachos, or as a party appetiser in lettuce wraps or just as a side dish, You can thank me later 😉 .
