It is funny how a recipe can stay with you.
Almost twenty years ago I was given as a birthday present Sophie Grigson’s Meat Course. I am not sure I have looked at it much since then but one of things that I have made on a regular basis is her receipe for Mango Salsa to go with some spiced grilled chicken breast.
I made it last night again and looking back at the recipe this morning it was good to see that I had followed it exactly.
- 1 ripe mango peeled and chopped into small cubes
- 1 small red onion finely sliced
- 1 red chilli finely chopped
- a crushed clove of garlic
- juice of a lime
- olive oil
- a handful of finely chopped coriander leaves
Mix all together in a bowl and leave to stand in the fridge so the flavours get to know each other.
In the meantime cook your chicken breast – or for last night – pork chops and veggie burger all done on a small BBQ.
Eat with the salsa piled on your plate with some basmati and wild rice as the sun goes down and you listen to your youngest daughter tell you tales of Cornwall.
