Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Here is a quick and easy mango salsa recipe that’s a perfect addition to grilled meats. I served this with grilled pork chops. It is really great with fish and perfect with chicken too. I used tomatoes in my salsa, but you could substitute cucumbers instead. Red Peppers would be another great addition to this recipe.

Yesterday was our anniversary, and because it landed on a Sunday, my husband made reservations for Saturday night at Enzo’s Italian restaurant near our home. We have read great reviews of Enzo’s over the years, but have never visited. When we first came to Orlando, we made reservations for a Valentine’s day dinner at a restaurant that has since closed, Lee’s Lakeside. It also had rave reviews. While the setting of the restaurant was amazing, it was located in our downtown and lakefront, the food and service on our visit was absolutely horrible. I thought the restaurant reviewers for the newspapers here were completely out of their minds, and we have since steered clear of most of their recommendations. That was a big, big, mistake. I am so disappointed that we have not visited Enzo’s sooner. It was the best service experience and food I’ve had since we visited Nobu’s in Manhattan. The setting is on a lake, and the restaurant is an older home transformed into a restaurant. The backyard is a beautiful garden where they also hold many weddings. The atmosphere is both romantic, family, and just plain warm and inviting. My husband and I both had a seared yellow fin tuna with lemon risotto. My son, yes he came along too, had the ravioli. One thing I love about these type of restaurants now that I have a kid is that they can get pretty noisy. Everyone starts talking over each other, and children’s voices get lost in the loud conversation. Before we had him, this really annoyed me, so in retrospect, I may not have enjoyed their busy atmosphere as much before. For dessert we had the most amazing almond cake with fresh berries and my son had a chocolate moose ice cream that he devoured.

    Angie, happy belated Anniversary. It was nice to read about your restaurant adventure and how you enjoyed your dinner out. The mango salsa looks delicious and I bet it would be great with grilled swordfish, yum! I think the addition of red pepper would be a good one.

    bright flavors, varying textures–this salsa is the perfect accompaniment for so many things, but i could and definitely would eat it straight from the bowl. the end.

    Happy Anniversary to you two!! It sounds like it was a very special evening. I love that you took your son to such a nice restaurant. I’m sure he was a little gentleman.

    Both of your recent recipes (quinoa and salsa) are so colorful. I think this speaks volumes about a person’s mood and outlook on life. Keep the color coming!

    Enzo’s looks like the perfect place for a celebration dinner! (Happy Anniversary!) The photo of your mango salsa is gorgeous. Mangoes are just made for salsa, aren’t they?

    Happy Anniversary Angie! Your salsa is so beautiful and colorful. I have yet to try a mango salsa and think I must be living in the stone ages :-0 The salsa sounds great with pork chops, something I serve weekly. I need to step out and try this.
