Mango Pico de Gallo
– A Great Recipe –

If you are a fan of the mango and you love it for its sweetness... possibly you would want to venture in another facet that the mango has, which consists in mixing it with other ingredients that are spicy – which gives as a result a salsa with extraordinary flavors.

The pico de gallo is a typical Mexican salsa, it is very popular and is normally served in traditional dishes like quesadillas, molletes, burritos, etc. It is also important to mention that the salsa is fresh and its ingredients are cut into small chunks. In this pico de gallo variation mango is added, that serves to provide sweetness to the whole preparation.

When pork loin or leg is prepared use this salsa to accompany them and you have no clue of how savory this combination is. It can also be used in some dishes that have fish or shellfish.
