|Sweet with a bit of zest and tang. I would eat this any time of day!|
Here is your Spring Break in a bowl. After last week’s Jerk Chicken Meatballs, my mind is seriously set on a tropical excursion! I’m still stuck in this endlessly cold winter weather, but I’m making a rare departure from local NY ingredients. #myfoodtraveledididnot
You can eat this Greek Yogurt with Mango and Sweet Pepper Salsa any time of day really: whip it up for a quick breakfast or fancy brunch for guests; enjoy the protein after a workout or as a snack that won’t ruin your fitness; it’s savory for lunch and sweet for dessert all at the same time. Greek yogurt is so incredibly versatile. And the sour and sweet flavors here balance so well you can reach for the 0% fat version, add no sugar, and keep it super healthy without sacrificing taste.
|Give your mango a gentle squeeze to see if it’s ripe. Some mangoes might also smell sweet at the stem end.|
Leave the mango big so you can bite into sweet chunks independent of the zesty onion and cilantro. This also helps the flavors keep until the next day. There’s no added oil or juices so it won’t get soggy if you pack for later.
Simple. Just so right! Enjoy it early and often.
|Look it matches my rug! Don’t these colors just make you smile?|
|I found these beautiful sweet peppers in a Sunset brand bag at my local Fairway…and this is what they look like after a week in the fridge.|
Greek Yogurt with Mango and Sweet Pepper Salsa
1 large, ripe mango, cut into large chunks
1/2 cup mixed orange and red sweet peppers or bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
4 cups 0% fat Greek yogurt
Mix together mango, peppers, onion and cilantro and season. Season with salt, pepper and/or lime juice, if desired to balance flavors. Spoon 1 cup of yogurt into each bowl and top each with 1/2 cup of salsa. Enjoy immediately or pack for later.
|I thought I would need a little honey for the tang of my 0% fat Greek yogurt, but the ripe chunks of mango gave all of the sweetness I needed.|
|I can’t wait until these beauties start to pop up at the farmers market again.|
