This colorful fresh mango salsa is amazingly delicious and so easy to make. It’s sweet and spicy with a hint of lime that’s so refreshing on a hot summer day!
On days when I don’t feel like cooking, I make this salsa and just eat it on its own for a quick lunch or have it with some sweet potato chips. It takes less than 10 minutes to make!
Since I came back from my Asia trip, I felt like my body needed a cleanse from over eating all those amazing food and desserts! For the past month, I’ve been trying to eat more raw food, less processed food and do more exercise. I even signed up for a raw food cooking class! So you can expect more interesting salad recipes coming soon!
What makes this fresh mango salsa so healthy is the combination of mangoes, tomatoes and lime juice. 1 cup of diced mangoes alone contains 100% of the daily need for Vitamin C. I always like to combine foods with Vitamin C in any meal, especially raw food because the Vitamin C helps absorb the nutrients, particularly iron from other foods.
I’ve had this mango salsa in tacos and nachos with guacamole and black beans, in a tofu wrap and even in a burrito bowl. It’s so delicious and healthy!
