This is such an exciting time of year to be living in Nicaragua.
The reason I say that is thatÂ Mango season is starting! I've always loved mangoes.
When I was pregnant with my first daughter and lived in the US I would drive to the store in the middle of the night to get mangoes. I guess that is why I am so excited to pick fresh mangoes slice them and eat them. They are delicious ripe and sweet. I also enjoy fresh mango salsa with chicken or fish. The secret is to make it 8 hours before serving.
1 cup diced mango
1 cup ripe chopped seeded tomatoes
1/2 cup finely diced cilantro
