Apple Mango Salsa

This weekend, I discovered along with this fabulous recipe that I am allergic to mangoes. Funniest thing is that I never even liked mangoes until this weekend..and I grew up in Florida with a mango tree in our back yard! Everyone that tried it this weekend, asked for the recipe and said, as my good friend, Marilyn always says, "That's a WOWSER!!" It is! No sugar, totally healthy, quick to fix and so simple!

2 mangoes
2 apples
1 small purple onion (I used about 1/3-1/2 cup)
cilantro (about 2 T. dried because I was out of fresh)
juice of 2 limes
salt to taste

Put all ingredients in a food processor and chop. Pour lime juice over top and stir in. Add salt to taste. Serve with chips. (I used Mission Style chips.) Enjoy!!

BUT... for even better delight, I made the second batch to take to Carol's and spread 16 oz. softened cream cheese on a plate, then poured the salsa on top. OH MY!!! Milder because of the cream cheese. And of course, everything's better with cream cheese on it! ENJOY twice as much! Enjoy!
