Share with friends and family

We all have a love hate relationship with summer dont we ?? I very much love summer and eagerly wait to gorge on the yummy ,sweet and  luscious mangoes while I hate it for the heat and sweat..well there is no gain without pain. 
This year's summer has been totally different for all of us across the globe . Most of us are staying indoors and doing our bit by breaking the chain while the frontline health workers are struggling to fight the pandemic.  Salute and prayers to them and their families to be safe .

Well , now that we have spoken of lockdown , kids are all at home and need to be engaged as they get bored quickly as possible . Also they keep asking for something to munch on to keep the boredom away and parents look for healthy alternatives all the time. 

Salsa is the Spanish word for sauce but in present day cuisine it is mostly used as a dip or an accompaniment to nachos, burritos, grilled veggies etc.  There are lot of varieties of salsa which can be prepared,today we shall prepare the tangy sweet and mildly spiced Mango Salsa as it the season of Mangoes. 

Mango salsa is a very refreshing sauce or dip and is certainly a riot of flavors when we take a mouthful ..have it with nachos or as is , it is too good to resist . Let us quickly get to the recipe now .
