A beautiful moment



Just a beautiful moment a couple evenings ago

 With the daily summer rains, we do see a lot of rainbows in Florida, but this rainbow was exceptionally bright and large and visible for longer than most rainbows.

Mango Salsa

It is mango time in Myrtle Glen!

We have only one tree, the natural dwarf variety 'Carrie', so the mango harvest is manageable. Enough fruit to eat fresh and share some with friends, make several recipes and freeze the rest. 

Time to make some mango salsa :-)




Ingredients:
  • 2 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 medium sized red onion, diced
  • 1  red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime, or more to taste
  • salt, pepper to taste

Directions:
  • Combine all ingredients, season to taste with lime juice, salt, and pepper. 
Serve with tortilla chips. 
This salsa also tastes great as a side with grilled fish, shrimp or chicken, or use as topping on a tropically inspired salad.
