This is a tasty and healthy condiment will add a “je ne sais quoi“ to your dinner or appetizer. This is my best version of mango chutney. Everyone loves it! Add mango pizzazz to your crab cakes, chicken schnitzel and veal.

- 1 small red onion, minced
- 1/2 red pepper, minced
- 1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced

- Juice of 2 lime (or 1 lemon + 1 lime)

. . .. . .
Combine all ingredients. Drizzle with some olive oil and toss.
Serve with crab cakes, chicken, veal or scallops.
To plate an appetizer, place chutney on plate and food on top.
DID YOU KNOW?
Like a rose by any name will smell just as sweet. Call it what you may, hara dhania, CILANTRO or coriander. They are, one and the same ingredient.
*Coriander: Coriander is also known as Chinese parsley. But, commonly known as cilantro in North America.

YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH
One cup of diced mango is 100 calories. YUM! The 20% folate (a form of vitamin E) in a mango is metabolized in the liver. Any drinkers with fatty livers will appreciate this fact. All peppers are loaded with antioxidants, but none as much as the brightly colored reds, yellows, and orange. Currents have more antioxidants than blueberries. Mango and peppers are a dynamic duo! Right Batman!
