Reincarnation and Good Salsa

It is possible I may have been Mexican in another lifetime. I am not kidding. Here is maybe why I could have been Mexican: 

1) Hablo español.
2) I have been told I speak Spanish with a Mexican accent by other Spanish speakers.
3) I was addicted to Mexican soap operas in the 90's.
4) I was asked last year to be the Spanish Language Liason (volunteer)at my daughter's school for meet and greet events.
5) I make really good tacos and salsa.  

Due to the preceding reasons, I believe I was Mexican in another lifetime. Now let's talk salsa. Summer is almost over. I feel it even here in the land of no seasons. The humidity seems a little less thick. If you look quick enough, you could see the leaves have slight movement. My mango tree has been so good to us this summer. I know, I'm always talking about these silly mangos. But seriously! The best mangos grow in my backyard. I wish I could send you each a mango to test it for yourselves.

Organic Mango Salsa
serves 4
2 diced plum tomatoes
1/2 diced red bell pepper
2 cups of diced mangos (organic or conventional)
juice of one lime
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 diced scallions (I used 2 organic scallions)

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Serve immediately with tacos or just some good chips.  If you are not a good sharer, hide the bowl from your guests and give them the boring jarred salsa.

Here are all the mangos we cleaned yesterday. Now we will can them for the fall.
