Mango-Cherry Pico de Gallo

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 mangos, peeled, seeded and diced
6 ounces cherries, pitted and halved
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 red onion, peeled and julienned
2 serrano peppers, seeded and minced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
2 limes, juiced

Instructions

Simply mix all the ingredients and let stand refrigerated at least one hour. It is better, though, to make one day ahead and stir occasionally. It lasts in the refrigerator for about three days. Absolutely fantastic with almost any grilled item, especially pork, veal, or salmon.
