Mango and Tomato Salad
I have been craving for ripe mango for quite some time when lo and behold, while shopping at my favorite Asian grocery store in San Jose yesterday, I found boxes and boxes of ripe mango. I could only purchase a whole box, not individual fruits, but I went for it. After all it was a bargain!
So sitting by my kitchen counter thinking what I would do with a whole box of mangoes, it suddenly dawned on me to try this salad recipe. I couldn’t be happier with the result!
As for the rest of the mangoes? Who knows what I’ll come up with tomorrow. Mango chicken? Mango beef? Mango with ice cream? We shall see!
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into medium-sized cubes
2 medium tomatoes, cut into similar-sized cubes
1 lime, sliced in half
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1 green pepper, sliced
1 small onion, diced
Salt & pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients (except the lime) in a mixing bowl
Using a strainer, squeeze the lime over the mixture
Add salt & pepper to taste
Stir the mixture using a spatula
Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator before serving
(Makes 4-6 servings)
