Bucky's Mango Salsa

i'm not sure if this should go here, but here goes.

i made this the other night, and it was fantastic, extremely simple, and it goes with a ton of dishes, especially grilled meats. i think i must have gleaned a few ideas from watching ming tsai, and maybe bobby flay, to come up with the idea and ingredients.

ingredients:

1 ripe mango,
1 stalk of celery
2 cloves of garlic
4 scallions
1 large jalapeno
1 large roma or plum tomato
2 red radishes
evoo
balsamic vinegar
s&p

cut mango into roughly 1/4" cubes.
slice celery into thirds lengthwise, then across for a small dice.
mince garlic.
cut scallions into small hockey pucks, using both white and firm green parts.
remove core, seeds, and pith from a halved jalapeno. cut into thin juliienne strips, then across for a fine dice.
core tomato and cut into small dice.
cut radishes into small dice, as you would an onion.
add all ingredients to a bowl, drizzle with a few tbsps of evoo, a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, and s&p to taste. mix well and refrigerate. serve as a side or over top of grilled or broiled meats.

that's it, very simple, and very tasty. i am going to add some cubed honeydew melon to the one that i'm making tonight, adding a little more of each of the other ingredients, except the mango.
this is also a great dish to experiment with, adding various herbs like rosemary, oregano, sage, parsley, cilantro, or whatever you have available. same goes for adding firm cubed fruit like melons, apples, pears, etc., adjusting the other ingredients to match the volume of the additions.

Mmmm... do you think it would be nice with a fresh, grilled tuna steak? I like salsas and chutneys on my tuna so this would probably be good too.

Thanks Bucky!

Bucky, that sound really good, I love balsamic vinegar. I think I am going to try this as soon as I can find some good mango's. I usually just make mine with the usual ingredients of mango, red onion, jalapeno, tomato, lime juice, cilantro, white vinegar, sugar and salt. I like your variation though.

I make mine similar to yours abj, except I don't use tomato in mine. I love love love the combo of mango, jalapeno, and red onion.

BT yours sounds great. I love the idea of celery and radishes.

oops!!! i forgot the tomato, adding it now, thanks for the reminder abj.
lol, i guess it's optional.

it seems to go really well with teryaki marinated pork, chicken, or even squid, but plain roasted or grilled meats/fishes work too.
grumble, i'd think it would go well with grilled or even just seared tuna.

gb, good, fresh radishes taste very peppery to me, adding another sub-level of spice or heat.

Mmmm. I'm wild about Mangos. Ming has such a flaire for putting flavors together. Like your ideas to further embellish too. I'm not into spicy, but this looks really good - maybe with salmon. BT, would you call this a chutney? Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
