How to Make Fresh Green Mango Salsa: A Mexican-Inspired Dip
Salsa is a famous Mexican sauce that is commonly used as a dip. Often spicy, its spiciness level may vary from quite mild to very strong. A typical salsa consists of tomatoes, onions, chilies, citrus, and coriander (cilantro). It is usually served alongside tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chips, and all kinds of other Mexican dishes and snacks.
Nowadays, there are many different variations of salsa that have been created. In this recipe, I made my own version of green mango salsa.
