I bought some mangoes at the grocery today…an awesome deal of 10 mangoes for $2.00! Obviously they need to be eaten fairly quickly as they are somewhat ripe at this point….but I ate one at lunch and they are delicious! I decided to make a chutney or salsa but didn’t really know what to add but I knew I wanted to use mangoes and jalapeños…so I found this recipe online at RecipeZaar…the result was pretty good but I think it needs more jalapeno (but start with the suggested and then add more if needed) or maybe some chopped sweet red onion!


  • 2 cups cubed mangoes
  • 1 diced jalapeno (seeded)
  • 1 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoons sugar (depending on how sweet the mango is)


  1. Mix all ingredients.

I ate this salsa with whole wheat tortillas but I think it would be good with grilled or seared scallops too!
