Mango salsa – Hot Dog topping

Mangoes are currently in season so that’s an extra reason you should be making this delectable salsa that has many uses: fish, pork and, of course, hot dogs.

This is the time for mangoes and what better way to use them than as a side-kick to whatever meats you’ve got going on. This is a great recipe that you can prepare in advance. Goes great as a hot dog topping too – just make sure you chop the mango finely so the big chunks don’t roll off your dog. If you find that the mangoes are too sweet, add some vinegar to give it the tartness it needs. If they are not sweet enough, adjust with sugar.

Add Jalapeno pepper suiting your comfort level with spicy-ness.
