It’s now Wednesday.. and we are starting to slide that slippery slope to the weekend! So it’s time to plan some fun things for you and your friends. Here is a killer recipe that’s ideal for anytime snacking and also to give food that you are cooking a step up in the presentation and flavor department: Mango Salsa made with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc. This wine adds the perfect touch of light, “green” flavor and it’s perfect to sip as well with dinner as well as a substitute for a cocktail. I love this brand and I love this varietal. I am a huge Sauvignon Blanc fan! This recipe is so easy to make.
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Mango Salsa
Total Time: 5 minutes* plus chilling
2 cups chopped ripe mango
2 cups chopped strawberries
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
In a medium bowl, combine mango, strawberries, onion, Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc, cilantro, and jalapeno.
Cover and chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
Serve with grilled chicken skewers or tortilla chips.
Makes 4 cups salsa (16, 1/4-cup servings).
To make ahead: Prepare as above; cover and chill up to 24 hours.
Note: This also works nicely as a topper for grilled fish or pork.
Preparation Tip: How to Cut a Mango:
To cut a mango, trim the stem end off of the mango giving you a flat base. Stand the mango on your cutting board, trimmed end down. Using a sharp knife, slice all the way through the mango next to the pit. Flip the mango around and repeat on the other side. Cut a checkerboard pattern into the mango flesh of each piece, being careful not to cut through the skin. Using a spoon, remove the mango pieces from the skin and use as directed in recipe.
Another way to cut a mango is to peel part of the skin off and use a larger table spoon (not a measuring spoon) to remove the skin, and then cut the mango flesh into small pieces!
Another way to use Mango Salsa
For chicken skewers:
If using wooden skewers, soak in enough water to cover for at least 30 minutes before grilling. Cut 6 skinless boneless chicken breast halves lengthwise into strips, cutting each half into four or five strips. Thread chicken strips, accordion-style on skewers. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill skewers on the rack of covered grill directly over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally to cook evenly.
You can find Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi wines at your local supermarket or liquor store. The price point is ideal and it’s easy to find. Buy a couple of bottles since one will not be enough!
Personal recommendation is to buy a the Sauvignon Blanc x 2 bottles and also snag a bottle of Pinot Grigio too!
Both are stellar wines!
