Primal Recipe: Mango Salsa

If you are a primal eater, you know that having a varied diet is important when it comes to staying on track and enjoying your food. One way to do that is to try new recipes. If you’re a fan of mango, or are willing to experiment with your fish, pork, or chicken dishes, why not try a mango salsa? Below are two different mango recipes – one sweet and savory, one sweet and spicy. Choose the one that best suits your tastes, or try both to see which one you prefer.

Sweet and Savory Version:

½ fresh medium-sized mango, cut into bite-sized chunks
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon of freshly-squeezed lemon juice
½ small shallot, minced

In a bowl, gently stir together the mango, cilantro, shallot, and lemon juice. Spoon over or serve beside pork tenderloin, chicken, or fish.


Sweet and Spicy Version:

1 mango, cut into bite-sized pieces
½ bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 or 2 jalapenos, sliced in half and seeds removed – if you like spicy, leave some seeds in (wear gloves)
½ sweet red bell pepper, chopped
½ red onion, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 pint of grape tomatoes, quartered
1 ½ limes juiced, or 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

Place all your ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl, except for the avocado and lime juice. Leave the avocado prep until last so that it doesn’t go brown. Squeeze the lime juice all over the entire mixture and mix gently. Serve immediately with your fish, pork, or chicken, or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
