We are so blessed to have mangos that grow in abundance on in Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula.  This mango salsa is crisp, juicy, and has just the right amount of Picante. Each sumptuous bite will make you feel like you are right back at Blue Osa. As the mango dissolves in your mouth imagine palm trees swaying around you, the lull of waves crashing on the beach, and brightly colored parakeets fly over your head.
