Spicy Mango Salsa

The mango is a juicy, delicious fruit that you can eat any way you like.  The mango is my favorite fruit and there is nothing better than a juicy mango on a hot summer day.

The mango has the flavors of orange, pineapple, coconut and a little hint of apple rolled into a beautiful fruit.  The mango is not only a tasty fruit, but it is also one of the healthiest fruits you can eat.

I was inspired by a fellow You Tuber, Lee Gaines to make a mango dish.  Check out Lee Gaines’s Quick Refreshing Raw Vegan Snack for the Summer.  He makes you laugh, but he also shares helpful information about the ingredients he uses in his recipe.

I came up with a delicious mango salsa and today I share it with you.  Below are the key ingredients and a few health benefits of the ingredients:
