Healthy Living: Mango Salsa Makes for a Tasty Summer Treat

If you're like us here at Exact Science, you probably spend a lot of time thinking about creative ways to fit healthier foods into your diet. This can be especially tough in the summer, a season ruled by brats, burgers and ice cream cones.

One of Exact Sciences team member Nada's favorite tricks for eating healthier in the warm months is making mango salsa, a surprisingly sweet treat perfect for hot summer days. A single ½ cup serving of Nada's mango salsa includes less than 80 calories and no fat or cholesterol, plus fiber, protein and plenty of other good stuff. 

Here's how she makes it:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large mangoes
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • ½ cup minced cilantro
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 pinch each salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel the mango and cut along the sides of the pit to remove its flesh. Dice the fruit into 1-inch cubes and place them in a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended.
  3. Serve with baked chips
