Mango salsa: Perfect for tacos

What i love about tacos is that the fillings can vary endlessly…. despite being called tacos it’s never really the same meal.

Soft tortilla bread or hard taco shell.

Vary vegetables. Vary the beans. Vary the “meat” i.e soy meat, tofu crumbles, lentil mix, walnut “mince” etc

Guacamole, salsa, creme fraiche, pickled onion….

How can you not love tacos hahaha…..

Sauce on tacos is a must for me… but also salted peanuts. Call me crazy, but i love adding peanuts to my tacos. I guess i am that strange person who also loves pineapple on pizza and fruit in my food 😍

A new delicious taco filling/topping is mango salsa. Typically i think this works with fish dishes… from what i understand. But is also great paired with or on some tacos.

So next time you make tacos…. give this salsa a go!

Recipe:

1 mango or arbout 250g defrosted mango

1/2 red onion

1/2 red chilli

Coriander or parsley or mint

1-2 tbsp lime juice

Pinch of salt

Optional is to add some cucumber or even diced tomto

How to:

Dice everything into small pieces. Mix together. Taste and adjust salt/lime according to preference!

You could even mix everything in a food processor to make more of a sauce… either mix it smooth or mix so that it still has some chunky pieces!!!

A very simple recipe but those are important to share as well!!!

Let me know… do you have any must haves on your tacos?

2 vegan sauces: Mustard tahini dressing & Peanut butterdressing

Something i have noticed is that people definitely want more vegan dressing and sauce recipes.

As soon as i post a recipe including a sauce or dressing i get several comments and messages all asking for the recipe. Most of the time i just throw together a mix for a dressing and hope it turns out good, however i have noticed that for the perfect sauce… you do at times want the perfect ratio of ingredients!

So i thought it was time i share two of my favourite dressings on here, and not just on my instagram page. Meaning that it is easier to link to and easier for others to search and save!

Also, i will be making a masterpost of sauce/dressing recipes so that you can just save that page to go back to whenever you need a sauce or dressing 🙂
