Mrs. O at hOme – Mango Salsa Recipe

Every time I attempt to cook something and decide to share it on an Instagram story, I get dozens of messages from friends and readers asking me to share recipes. One of my most popular photos was indeed of fresh mango salsa.

I cook pretty much every day when I am home – and my cooking is pretty simple. For me, it is all about the ingredients and how I can maximise flavour… I also pick up quite a bit of inspiration from my travels  and I adapt recipes to suit my palate (and what I can find in my local supermarket).

One of my favourite barbecue side dishes is fresh Mango Salsa. I have discovered its delights in Mexico and also San Diego and they are a firm favourite of friends and family when they come over to Maison O’Reilly.

WARNING: these photos were really taken by myself when I was cooking. Some dirty hands were involved and the focus was to get the mango salsa made in time. I will try and replace the photos with something more artistic, but you get to see the real life version here.

1 red pepper (approx. 120g) – cut in small cubes

Juice of 1 lime (or 2!)

Mango Salsa Method

It is very difficult… literally chop everything in small pieces and mix together. Add the salt and the lime juice (I sometimes add a second lime) and season to taste.

I would recommend putting it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving and stir it a few times. Eat on the day (but it will keep for another couple of days).
