What is the best part of your weekend? I love quiet Sunday mornings, sitting on the porch and sipping coffee.
I’m an early riser and there’s something about that early morning quiet time that makes it even more special! Enjoying those quiet moments and planning my week is something I cherish. It’s the BEST time!
Last week Sunday morning was spent at my folks house doing that very thing, except at their house it was the porch swing, surrounded by family. Truly the best time spent, my family time is precious and I love every minute!
I’m not gonna lie, coming back and getting to work wasn’t the easiest, so today I thought I’d share a simple bright delicious recipe and I know you will love it! How do I know? Because my Ja Makin’ Me Crazy Jam is one of my most popular recipes, so I know you’ll love this great Mango Salsa Recipe just as much!
Making juicy mango salsa starts with ripe, juicy mangos!
How do you pick a ripe mango?
Picking a ripe mango is easy. Just like you’d pick out an avocado, lightly squeeze it. A ripe mango will give slightly, similar to how an avocado will “give” when pressing lightly.
- a ripe mango will smell sweet
- like avocados when mangos are ripe they will be slightly soft
- heavy is good; a juicy ripe mango will be heavier.
- you can’t choose a mango by their color as some are green, red or orange.
What is the easiest way to cut up a mango?
Some choose to peel a mango prior to slicing and removing the pit. I remove the peel after slicing and removing the peel. Once peeled they are slippery to work with and it’s easy to accidentally cut yourself.
- Set the mango on the cutting board, finding the tallest line of the mango.
- Slice along the tallest line, this will follow the pit
- Slice around the pit.
- Remove the skin from the flesh of the fruit and slice into smaller pieces
