I also like to stir in some fresh diced tomatoes before serving, especially when they are in season in the summer.

This easy appetizer keeps so well in the refrigerator that you can make it the day before without fear of it losing flavor.

Peel garlic. Place garlic, tomatillos, jalapeño, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until ingredients are coarsely chopped. Place tomatillo mixture in a large bowl; stir in mango.
This is really yummy in sandwiches or on toast with sliced fresh tomatoes and other traditional sandwich veggies. And it’s especially good with a little roasted garlic spread on the bread or toast as well!

I love eating this, but you may not. My husband in particular hates this dish, so I just make it for myself.
Hints: For a spicy dip, use Taco Seasoning Mix made by Bearitos or Hain. For a delicious French Onion Dip, use the one made by Simply Organic. Simply Organic makes a delicious Dill Dip also, as well as several others, including a Southwest Taco. Other packaged mixes may be available in your local natural food stores. Read the labels carefully for healthy ingredients with no added oils or animal products.
