Hello;) Week three of herb month is here; Cilantro Week! The first recipe that I have for you guys was shown to me by my aunt, and is perfect for summer. This mango salsa works great with chips, on tacos, or as a side with any main course. It’s super fresh and colourful as well! As a side note, does anyone else have an obsession with mangoes? I think that I could eat them everyday. Put them together with some avocado, red onion, red pepper, tomatoes and cilantro……. delicious! But as with every week, first I’m going to give you some tips on growing this week’s herb.
Apparently cilantro does better in the cooler temperatures of spring and early fall, but my plant has been doing just fine sooooo…… Keep the dirt around your plants moist, and once they start to provide leaves, you can cut or pick them off. That’s pretty much it, cilantro is pretty low-maintenance. Here’s the Mango Salsa recipe!
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 1 mango, diced
- 1 small tomato, diced
- 1/4 of a red onion, diced
- 1/2 a red pepper, diced
- 1/2 an avocado, diced
- 1/3 cup of fresh cilantro
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- Once all of the veggies are diced, toss them in a bowl with the lime juice and cilantro.
Enjoy this recipe and have a great week! See you later;)
