This cucumber-mango salsa is great for picnics and parties, and is a perfect snack for the summer. This salsa includes ingredients such as mangos, cucumber, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper. If you want you could add additional ingredients such as green or red bell pepper. You can serve this salsa with tortilla chips but it goes even better served on grilled chicken or other types of meat; it would be perfect to serve with Jerk chicken. In the near future I am going to use a salsa similar to this for Jerk burgers. If you are looking for a delicious and refreshing treat for summer, give this recipe a try. Enjoy.
