CHEF'S NOTES
1. Mangoes usually feel a little softer when ripe. If mangoes are not in season or not in
your store, use canned peaches or pineapple, packed in juice. Drain before using.
2. Serve salsa as a dip with Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips. Or, use as a topping for
fresh fish or pork, black bean soup, or tacos.
