As a topping to the kalua pork, we came up with the idea to throw together a quick mango salsa. It seemed Hawaiian-esqu enough and also, mangoes were on sale at Whole Foods. Why not put them together right?
Typically, I tend to be be a bit heavy handed when spicing things. What can I say, I really enjoy bold flavors. This recipe however is actually very well balanced. You really only need a tablespoon or two of the lime juice and the zest goes a long way in it. Similarly, with the jalapeno, you might want to rib it before you mince it up. It all depends on your preference. I also love the trader joe’s orange vinegar for another citrus flavor.
Bonus points, it’s vegan.
