Chunky Mango & Tomato Salsa


I love when I can make simple and delicious appetizers that you can put together in just 10 minutes. One of the recipes I like to make its this mango tomato salsa. Refreshing, delicious and the most important is that 1) you can make it ahead of time and 2) it takes 10 minutes to make.

I you make it ahead of time, I would mix all the ingredients except for the tomatoes, unless you use cherry tomatoes. Add those 10 to 15 minutes before you want to serve it. Also, I find that you can easily substitute the lime for lemon. 

Let’s do it!

*You can substitute the lime for lemon.
*Pickled jalapeños are fantastic in this dish! Check out the recipe on my instagram account. 
*Make Ahead: Make it up to 3 hours ahead of time. If using cherry tomatoes, you can mix them too, but if you use a whole tomato, I would suggest to add the chopped tomato 15 to 20 minutes before serving the salsa.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
