Mucho Mango Salso

I am not usually a huge fruit salsa fan.  I normally find it to be too sweet for my tastes, but Tim and I had about 8 mangoes, so I figured I would give it a go with a recipe from the Chevy's cookbook.  I actually really liked this recipe.  I don't know that I would choose it over a pico de gallo, or another tomato salsa, but as far as mango salsas go, this one is really good.

Mucho Mango Salsa
Recipe from Chevy's Fresh Mex Cookbook

1 large mango
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced cilantro
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 teaspoon minced habanero (I couldn't find habanero peppers so I used a jalapeno)
2 tablespoons finely diced red bell pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients, mix well, serve chilled.
I always think salsas taste best the day after you make them so I made this a day in advance.  If you have time to do that I would recommend it.  It gives all the flavors a chance to mingle a bit.
