This is a tasty and healthy condiment that will add that “je ne sais quoi“ to your dinner or appetizer. It is the best version of mango chutney that I have ever had. Everyone likes it. Even the cilantro haters do not notice the cilantro in it. Your crab cakes will never be the same. You can serve it along side of your chicken schnitzel, veal, seafood. It is best made the same day and worth it.

YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH
One cup of dice 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. Mango and peppers are a dynamic duo! Right Batman!
