Salsa or Salad... you kitchen! kitchen!

Mango salad or salsa.
A barely ripe mango with sweet peppers and
scallions. Great as a salad or salsa....
you decide!!

Mangoes at its best!
1 barely ripe mango (too ripe will be stringy) peeled and slivered
4 scallions
A handful of cilantro roughly chopped
A juice of 1 lime and lime zest
1 minced jalapeno (seeds and membrane removed) - I kept the membrane for some heat
A quarter of a sweet red or orange pepper slivered
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey (optional)

Combine everything in a bowl except for the cilantro. Season with salt and add the lime juice and zest. The combination of salt and lime juice brings out the sweetness of the mango.Those 3 seem to have hit the "let's be friends for life" thing. You may add honey if you want it to be a little sweeter. Sprinkle the cilantro for more pizazz! GREAT WITH BARBECUE RIBS OR CHICKEN.... you decide!
