Thankful Thursday: Easiest EVER Mango Salsa

I refuse to let go of summer completely, just yet.  I just love the freshness of all the summer fruits and vegetables we have access to during this time of year.  I am thankful for the abundance of it all.

I attended a Pampered Chef party the other evening and the sales rep put together the simplest, most refreshing mango salsa I've ever shoveled into my mouth.  I could have eaten the entire bowl.  My friend, Cindy, the hostess, noticed how much I loved it because she sent me home with the remainder of it after the party.













The leftovers didn't last long in my house, because between me and my little farmboy, it was gone by noon the very next day.  

Which only means one thing.

Time to make my own.

Here's what you need........













Yep, that's it!  Five ingredients! {plus salt}













During the Pampered Chef party, I remembered I have one of their choppers that's been sitting, tucked away in my cupboard for at least 10 or 15 years.  Time to put it to some good use.

I cut up the peppers, mango and onion in large chunks.













Shoved them in the bottom of the chopper and chopped four or five times for a chunky consistency.













When finished chopping, combine all ingredients, add some salt to taste and pepper if you'd like and you're done!














All I needed was a refreshing margarita to go along with it.

Next time I'll try and save some to use atop some baked fish for dinner.....as long as little farmboy doesn't get to it first....he can eat this stuff by the spoonfuls.
