Mangos are cultivated throughout various regions of the world. There are many varieties that are used in chutneys, salsas, or simply eaten raw. They are a delicious and versatile fruit, and very refreshing in the summertime. In several cultures, its fruit and leaves are ritually used as floral decorations at public celebrations, and religious ceremonies. Recently, I participated in an event on Facebook, that required the use of mangos, as an ingredient. Of course, I had to get involved, and decided to make a quick and easy salsa. This dish can be eaten by itself, with tortillas, or over white fish. I have used it on cod-fish, and it came out delicious.
