diced fresh mango
fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
chopped fresh ginger root
chopped fresh basil
serrano chile peppers, diced
fresh lime juice
This was awesome...but, I only used the recipe as a guide. I diced up one mango, one peach, and used one small can of pineapple tidbits, two scallions, half of a jalapeno pepper, diced very small, one teaspoon of minced garlic from the jar,a sprinkle or two of ground ginger, about a teaspoon of dried cilantro, half fresh lime juice and half pineapple juice (from the tidbits can) to equal 1/4 cup...mixed all together and let it sit in the fridge for about 2 hours. Made chicken tenderloins on the George Forman, then cooked in skillet with teriyaki sauce to heat. After chicken was done...heated salsa in micro for 1 minute, poured over chicken. Served with teriyaki rice and green beans...WAS AWESOME!!!!!
I would've given this salsa at least 4 stars, if it had not been for the overpowering taste of the grated ginger. The ginger taste was too strong for the delicate flavors of the peaches and mangoes. I'll try this one again, minus the ginger...then it will be great! Also, half the recipe is *more* than enough for my family of three.
Absolutely wonderful. I did not use the basil or ginger root but did put in cilantro. I love the sweet hot taste of the salsa. I diffinately am hooked on mango salsa. Thanks for the recipe. I made extra salsa and froze it.
This is a fabulous, quick and easy salsa that will impress your guests. However, it makes more than enough and does not keep well, as it gains exponentially in potency. Making half is still plenty for twelve people. I served mine in half of a hollowed out pineapple, as a side to terriyaki pork and salmon.
Excellent! Might add a habanero next time..:)
This is very good, however I juiced it up a bit with a 2tablespoons of fresh OJ, two green onions and 1/4 cup of cilantro, what with me being from Texas and all I had to double up on the peppers. But it is very nice as an appetizer with chips and beer for a nice stuffed pork chopped dinner.
Worthy of 4 stars with slight modification. Like another reviewer suggested -- over-gingered! A little goes a long way, so add ginger sequentially to taste.
Fresh produce is mandatory. The spiciness is pepper dependent, just like garlic varieties -- so sample to know your ingredients. This makes a large quantity (10 servings) and you need to eat it while fresh.
We used it as a side dish to Jay's jerk chicken (on this site) and loved it.
This is an excellent recipe. I added pineapple and mixed pineapple juice to the lime juice. This Salsa is VERY spicy. Next time I will dull it down and use less garlic and ginger. Overall, very nice!
