IPO & IMO COME TOGETHER FOR PERFECT RECIPE














Mango-Pineapple Salsa







March 11, 2013  39 comments »











I’ve been seeing mangoes and pineapple at the grocery store for weeks now, but I haven’t felt tempted to buy them until recently. They’re such bright, cheery fruits that remind me of sunshine, green grass and long summer days. The weather in Pittsburgh has been anything but until this weekend. After having 10 inches of snow on Wednesday, we celebrated the first elongated day of the year yesterday with 70-degree weather. I’ll take it! The nice weekend weather called for some fresh fruit. A couple of weeks ago, my Chief Culinary Consultant and I had a family dinner at his cousin’s house, and she had a mango salsa and chips for us to munch on before dinner. It was delicious! On Saturday, feeling inspired by the gorgeous weather, I loaded up on mangoes and pineapple at the grocery store and made my own!








I love how incredibly fresh-tasting this salsa is… between the mango and pineapple, the bite from the red onion and jalapeño, and the pop from lime juice and cilantro, it’s an amazing combination. Not only is it fabulous, but it takes mere minutes to make. If you’re a master with the chef’s knife, you’ll have this thrown together in 10 minutes! We ate this with regular tortilla chips, although my CCC’s cousin served hers with lime-flavored tortilla chips, which were great, as well.






I’m thrilled to have another salsa recipe to add to my current repertoire of restaurant-style andblack bean salsa. Now that we seem to be turning the corner for summer, I’m ready for some warm-weather recipes! Do you have a favorite salsa recipe? Feel free to share it below!

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
