Mango Salsa!

One way we minister to our Church family here in Korea (and also get to know the congregation and new families more!) is to have people over for dinner (or breakfast or dessert....).  We love hosting and view hospitality as one way of serving in our community and loving those around us. It is a selfish way to serve, really, since we love and enjoy it - we are most surely blessed more than we are a blessing.  It is something our whole family loves and can participate in.  Caleb no longer asks "What's for dinner?" But rather "Who is coming for dinner!?" 

Last night we had a sweet couple over that we have been wanting to have over for some time now. I decided to make something new: Grilled Tilapia with mango salsa!  We really liked it and mango salsa is a new favorite.  Although time consuming (and we were only able to make because someone recently gifted us some mangoes which are normally way too expensive to buy here), it was worth it and I thought I would share our joy. 

Mango Salsa!
2 Large mangoes, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, finely diced
5 Tablespoons (or more depending on taste) red onion, finely diced
2-4 Tablespoons cilantro (there is only one tiny store in Songtan that sells cilantro occasionally!)
1-2 jalapenos finely diced (more if you like it spicier)
2 Tablespoons lime juice (which we can't get right now so I omitted)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (I increased to make up for no lime)
I added 1 clove crushed garlic because we love garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste (not much)
Dice and chop everything finely and mix together! Letting it sit for an hour in the fridge really blended the taste nicely.  We probably can't make this often but it was really delicious and if you live in a country where you can get all the ingredients easily, I hope you can enjoy on our behalf and pray for us while you eat it! :-)
