Yellow Mango Salsa
I usually make this with the large green mango’s but I noticed these small yellow mango’s at Sprouts and decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed; the yellow mango seemed sweeter and worked well with the peppers. This works well topping fish or chicken, you choose.

½ Banana pepper, seeded and chopped small
1 Jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped small
1/8 Red pepper, chopped small
