Since making the mango and turkey stir fry I’ve become very into mango in savoury dishes. It goes fantastically well in a salad or salsa and is great with white meat. What I have also become addicted to in the past week is Maille Mango Vinegar, a blend of vinegar and mango puree. It is sharp from the vinegar but sweet from the mango and is a lovely irresistable orange colour. I love marinating chicken or turkey in it with a little olive oil before cooking on the griddle, which is exactly what I did with this recipe.
Making a homemade salsa is another sign that the seasons are changing. It might be cold and wet at the moment but once we can get the barbecue out in the garden again, this salsa is going to be a staple. Lovely sweet red tomatoes, cucumber and mango with a generous helping of fresh coriander, and of course more of that mango vinegar. It made me feel that summer was on the way. Or maybe that’s being too optimistic.
