Ramon’s Mango Salsa

When my sister married Ramon, I had no idea a major foodie and exciting sushi chef had joined the family. To me, he was just Ramon. Faithful Ramon. Adoring Ramon. Kind Ramon.

But over the years he has shared with me a thing or two about preparing good food. This Mango Salsa is so simple to make, uses fresh ingredients, and tastes AMAZING! I actually eat this by the spoonful. Of course, it works beautifully over a piece of fish, chicken or a plate of chips.

The cast of characters (never mind the corn, I lost my mind momentarily)


Here’s my mango up close: (if you look closely at the sticker you will see my wink and smile to Gretchen).


And my mango in the process of being sliced:


Ramon’s Mango Salsa

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tsp honey
  • season with salt and pepper

Chop all of the ingredients to roughly the same size. Stir. Drizzle in vinegar and honey. Stir again. Store covered in the refrigerator about an hour. Stir. Taste. Need salt and pepper? Add a little and taste again. Taste again. And again. Stop eating directly out of the container momentarily. Grab a fresh spoon. Eat again.
