Bing's Mango Salsa
My friend, Suvarna made this dish for her party. I liked it so much that I asked for her recipe immediately. Better yet, I made her come to my house and cook lunch with me and make a tutorial with me.This is so good on its own. Or with a meat dish, like steak or stew or even a curry. And is fresh and summery. I’m going to make this forever.Please note that all ingredients are to taste and it is not necessary to be exact in measurements.
