Fresh Mango Salsa

No matter how old you are, no one can deny the joy of taking your first bite into an Aussie mango and it’s sweet, sticky juices running down your face.  Mangoes are delicious and versatile as a snack on their own or paired with chicken, seafood, fresh salads, thrown on the BBQ or in smoothies and sweet desserts.
