Good salsa, with modifications. Made the salsa as indicated by recipe, but it didn't seem united upon tasting. I had only added in 1/3 bunch of cilantro, and although I'm a real cilantro fan, I thought 1/3 bunch was too much. Can't imagine what it'd have been like with a whole bunch. I added some fresh lime juice and salt and pepper to unify the salsa. Served with grilled chicken. No point in frying chicken when it's just as good grilled with fewer calories. I agree, this would be great with grilled salmon, and plan to try that next. Thanks!

Great combination of flavors.

This salsa is even better if you make it a day ahead and let the flavors meld. I also took the suggestion to use on fish..... WOW it is excellent. I think it would also be good on grilled pork chops as well. Will try that next. I wasn't too open minded about the mango thing, but I'm a believer now!

This was one of the best recipes I"ve ever tried! My husband loved it! The next day we also tried the mango salsa over grilled salmon, it was DELICIOUS! Thank you Emma for this recipe.

It was very good and very colorful! I would probably add some more seasoning next time. I put some pineapple in too and it added some extra taste. Great for entertaining!

This was great...I added some things to the salsa...pineapple, lime juice and a bit of strawberry, based on other salsas my family has enjoyed. The breaded and pan-fried chicken isn't anything new either, but what really made this dish was putting them together. It seems like it wouldn't work and that's really what made me decide to make this dish...but it *DOES* work and it's really, really good. We all cleaned our plates...thank you so much for a really good, simple recipe that we will definitely eat again and again.

This was really excellent and my husband loved it,too! This will be a staple in my menu planning from now on. I added an extra mango to the salsa. We made the salsa the next day, too and served it over grilled salmon. Just delicious!!

Loved it! I think I would leave out the Red Pepper next time (a bit to hot for my own taste - I'll add more Mango too, Yummm!). It's great, very quick, and very easy...Just the way I like it!
