Mango Salsa


This Mango salsa is totally different from the tomato-based salsa. This requires no cooking and can be easily prepared in a jiffy.

Ever since the mango season started, I have been devouring varieties of this wonderful fruit. I thought its high time I made another simple yet  unique and a tasty dish before the mango season ends. So, here I am !
Any ripe mango can be used in this dish. Given a choice, I would always pick Alphonso mango. This time however, I tried it with the Baiganpally mango (a produce of Hyderabad). These are very big, sweet and juicy mangoes and have a very flat seed. 
I have added pitted black olives to give that extra zing and colour to the salsa.

The tomato based salsa (my earlier post) can be viewed here.

Note:
