When I was volunteering at World Peace Cafe on Monday, one of the things that I prepared was Mango Salsa for their Jamaican veggie burgers. I have never had mango salsa prior to that Monday so I did not know what to expect. I was a bit scared or the jalapeno peppers, but the mango cooled the hot peppers down, and the cilantro gave it a nice touch. I liked it so much that I decided to make some at home tonight. I volunteered again today and when I came home I did not feel like cooking anything complicated. I had some tofu bathing in a lime, soy sauce and sesame oil marinade in the fridge since this morning. I bought the mango salsa ingredients yesterday so I just made the salsa while my tofu flowers were baking. I added lime juice to the salsa for extra zing.
I wore gloves when I was cleaning and chopping the jalapeno pepper and I am glad that I did because shortly after I made the salsa I had to rub my eye and if I had some jalapeno pepper on my hand it would not be a pleasant experience....... I served the baked tofu and salsa with raw avocado slices. What a tasty, flavorful, colorful, fresh and healthy dinner :-) Have you ever made mango salsa? Do you have a favorite recipe?
