Mango Salsa

  • 1 fresh mango finely diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes finely diced (remove seeds)
  • 1/2 of a large fresh chilli chopped

Dressing for salsa and tacos

  • juice of 2 fresh limes (approx. 1/4 cup lime juice)
  • 1 tsp honey


  1. Add black rice to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn to LOW setting and allow the rice to simmer for 40 minutes. Keep covered. Remove from heat with the cover still on the pot and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet add olive oil, onions and garlic.  Cook until soft then add ground turkey with cumin, cayenne pepper and the half fresh chilli.  Toss until turkey is cooked and set aside.
  3. Dice mango, tomatoes, chives and remaining half chilli, then toss in a separate bowl.
  4. Whisk all ingrediens for spicy citrus dressing together and drizzle over mango salsa to coat. (Be sure to save some for the tacos)
  5. Build your tacos and enjoy! On a whole wheat tortilla pile meat, shredded cabbage, avocado and a scoop of the mango salsa. Garnish with cilantro and a drizzle of the spicy citrus dressing.

Makes approx. 6 tacos.
