Another yummy salsa for chips or to pair with fish, pork or chicken. I won’t tell anyone if you choose to sit and eat a bowl of it with a spoon (I have been known to do that with this recipe!)
Indonesia-inspired, the optional bit of fish sauce gives this salsa a unique flavor. If you like Thai food at all, fish sauce is present in many of the dishes.
2 cups mango, cubed
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce, optional
2-3 teaspoons hot sauce or chili sauce
In a medium bowl, gently toss all ingredients until combined. Let sit, refrigerated, at least 30 minutes before serving.
