Strawberry Mango Chutney (Salad or Salsa)
Posted on April 27, 2012
Whole Foods in South Lake Union has Honey Mango’s on sale right now 4 for $5…I don’t think I have ever seen anything in Whole Foods for that price! Too good to pass up so a couple days ago I purchased a few without an actual plan in mind.
Yesterday we (being Maggie and I) settled for a rather light meal- the classic pressure cooked artichokes (also on sale 2 for $4 …love this time of year!). I can fare just fine with artichokes for dinner, but Mark on the other hand can NOT (and I heard about it last night as he made himself a personal plate of spaghetti) SO tonight, we had to step it up :0)
Mark mentioned having fish for dinner so I thought I could make some sort of chutney out of the mangos. Inspired by a Pin I saw for a salsa, I whipped up a delightful spring/summer addition to compliment his halibut.
What you need…
- 2 Mangos, finely chopped
- 1lb Strawberries, finely chopped
- 1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Flat-leaf Parsley, finely chopped
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced
- Sea salt & fresh pepper, to taste
Put the mangos, strawberries, onion and parsley in a bowl and toss. Squeeze the 1/2 lemon over the mixture and then salt and pepper to taste. Mix and then pop in the fridge for about 30-45 minutes.
When Mark’s halibut was done, we plated and put the chutney on top…was the perfect flavor combination! Fresh, sweet and citrusy with a kick. We ended up finishing the entire batch…started as a chutney, continued eating as a salad and then we got the bag of tortilla chips out :0) Would make this again in a heartbeat and will be going back for more mangos!!
