It’s mango season here in Hawaii and we’re up to our eyeballs in this luscious fruit. Come, we’re happy to share! If you cannot come right away, mangos are also likely available from your local grocer. For best results, wait for the fruit to ripen (it is still firm, but easy to cut into).
I large ripe mango, pitted, skinned and chopped
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/3 cup diced red onion
1-2 jalapeños, chopped
Fresh juice of 1 big lime
1/4 cup cilantro
Salt to taste
Combine all the above ingredients and let it sit for at least half an hour. Caution: wash your hands with soap and water once you’re done chopping the jalapeños (or wear gloves).
Serving Suggestion: Serve with corn chips or as serve with grilled chicken, shrimp or fish.
