   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           onion -- finely chopped
    2      cups          mango -- chopped
    2      cups          tomato -- chopped
    1      cup           fresh cilantro leaves -- chopped
    6                    jalapeno peppers -- seeded and chopped
    1      cup           bell pepper -- seeded and chopped
      1/4  teaspoon      black pepper
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  cup           fresh lime juice
    1      tablespoon    honey -- warmed
      1/4  teaspoon      oregano
      1/4  teaspoon      basil
    2      tablespoons   fresh garlic -- crushed
 
 If using fresh mangos, peel and then strip flesh from the seed with your 
 hands, holding the fruit over a bowl so as to catch the juice also.  If 
 using mango fruit already prepared, use just the fruit, not the juice they 
 are packed in.
 
 Jalepeno peppers can be replaced with any mildly hot peppers.  The number 
 can be adjusted to your taste for “heat.”  To intensify the heat, include 
 the seeds in the salsa; be careful, though, because the seeds really do 
 increase the heat.  I recommend using latex gloves when working with the 
 peppers and keeping your hands away from sensitive parts of your body.
 
 The bell peppers can be green, yellow and/or red, depending on what’s 
 available and what you might like to add for color.
 
 Mix all of the ingredients together, stirring after each ingredient, put 
 the mango in last to avoid crushing it.  Let the salsa stand for several 
 hours or overnight in a sealed container.  Stir, taste and adjust peppers 
 or other spices to taste.
 
 Serve with tortilla chips, on eggs, or anyway that suits your taste.
