Coconut Mango Chili Pepper Salsa

By • May 20, 2013 • 6 Comments



Author Notes: Cool, sweet and spicy, a perfect go-to, add-on recipe for the hot grilling days ahead. Mangoes are a natural pairing for coconut. Onion, sweet and hot peppers, fresh ginger and plenty of garlic add the heat. Coconut adds the crunch and a hint of coconut oil adds the dressing.

Serve with grilled chicken or fish. Add to a steaming pot of jasmine rice. Add as a tropical garnish to salmon burger. It's summer. . . with lighter fare, anything goes.

It's mango time in Miami! This recipe looks so delicious, that I'm definitely trying it this weekend with grilled fish.
