Happy Canada Day!! Its Canada’s Birthday! Lets have some yummy cake to celebrate!
Its also time to be In Purrsuit Of Flavours.
So a summertime recipe will be on the menu. We could have posted the recipe for this Canada Day Flag Cake, but *she* lost her recipe, and besides no one here eats such things anymore…our loss…cause it was yummy, but it has way too much sugary yumminess for the way we eat these days, for health reasons.
So to be completely different, here is our Summery Salsa recipe:
One ripe Mango, peeled and diced, 1/2 inch size (Sometimes we use two of them.)
One or two jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced into very small pieces. Adjust to taste.
One red pepper, seeded and diced.
One orange or yellow pepper, seeded and diced. (Or use two peppers all one colour.)
One small red onion, sliced, then diced into quite small pieces. (You can use any kind of sweet onion, and sometimes we sub in diced green onions or a lot of chives if the pantry did not yield any red onions, MOL!)
One bunch cilantro, chopped, you can include the stems, or omit them as desired.
About 1/3 to 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice.
Combine all in a larger bowl, and let it sit in the fridge to meld the flavours together. Stir before serving. Great with most anything, even on its own…we love to make this to enhance chili-lime salmon, or any salmon for that matter, its good with chicken too.
You can add salt and pepper if you wish, or even some minced garlic, but mostly we do not add those. You can switch out the mango for any other firm and sweet fruit such as pineapple or peaches. Parsley can be subbed for the cilantro, but the flavour will be quite different. You could use lemon juice, but it might be less sweet.
This is tangy, quite delicious, and refreshing. If you are watching the sugar in your diet, you can use less fruit or just make it without the Mango altogether.
