This is a wonderful accompaniment that can be served with pork or barbecued meats.
2 ripe mangoes
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced sweet peppers (use a mix of red, yellow and green)
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño (pickled, not fresh)
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
pinch of salt
1 juicy lime
Peel mango and dice fruit into small pieces. Mix all ingredients and toss in the lime juice. Chill until served. This will keep in the refrigerator up to a week, but in our house we're lucky if it lasts two days.
