I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Mild Mango Salsa

This classic combination of juicy mango, tart lime and hot (ish) seasonings comes together in just a few minutes. It's a healthy condiment that's generally served with fish, but I think can be served with just about any meat or fish. You can even serve it with tortilla chips for a fresh appetizer!

1 mango, diced
1 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion, white, vidalia or red
1/2 cup diced tomato
2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley or cilantro
1 garlic clove minced
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
pinch of hot pepper flakes

I don't have big cilantro fans here so I use parsley but ideally you want to use cilantro in your salsa.

Mix the mango, red pepper, onion, tomato and parsley together in a medium sized bowl. Then mix the garlic, lime juice, cumin, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes together.
You could use some finely chopped jalapeƱo in place of the hot pepper flakes if you want more heat.

Toss together and serve right away, but if you have the time refrigerate it for a few hours so the flavours have time to develop.

Then serve it up with just about anything that's grilled!
