Cinco de Salsa

Cinco de Salsa

Hey All!

Today we celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some Cinco de Salsa. About a year ago I posted this salsa recipe and forgot all about it until today. Super fresh, super healthy- easy Mango Salsa with only 5 ingredients. 5….as in cinco…. ok, you get it…

5 ingredients you’ll need:
White or Red onion (diced)
Green Onion (diced)
Handful of Cilantro (coarsely chopped)
4-5 Tomatoes (diced)
2-3 Mangos (diced)

Put it together:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and lightly hand toss. Squeeze a little lime juice on the top if you’d like some additional flavor. Serve in a white dish to make the color pop along with some colorful tortilla chips!

Happy Cinco De Mayo from The Make Shoppe!







Hello Mango!

Hello Mango!

Summer is almost here and I have been quite busy in my Bake Shoppe making new stuff.  But lately I’ve really been wanting to mix it up with some sweet and savory tastes.
Today, I’m sharing Mango Salsa (the recipe) and a couple different ways to serve it.

Let’s get started!

My new Tutu apron matches the salsa!

Ingredients you’ll need:
2-3 Mangos
2-3 Tomatoes
1/2  c. Red Onion
1 bunch chopped Green Onion
1 c. chopped Cilantro
3 Fresh Garlic Cloves (minced)
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 Tbs Kosher Salt

Put it together:
Wash and dry all produce. Dice the mangos, tomatoes, red onion and place in a large bowl, lightly hand-toss. Next, add your chopped green onions and cilantro, toss again. Finally, add the minced garlic, lime juice, salt and mix together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour before serving.
Adjustments you can make: Add less or more of any ingredient to your liking! Like it spicy? Add 1-2 diced Habanero Peppers. (handle peppers with caution)

How to serve:
As an appetizer: Serve with chips!
For breakfast: Add a scoop to your plate of eggs!
For dinner: Top your grilled chicken breast!
