Isn’t it a truth universally acknowledged that, were someone to search through our Google histories, they would likely find a catalog of ridiculously embarrassing things? For example, some recent gems of mine include (but are certainly not limited to):
- “chandler dancing on things” (No explanation needed)
- “rob kardashian twitter” (Go ahead, judge me – I certainly am judging myself)
- “life belts put your life belts on” (Titanic shout out!)
- “trekking annapurna” (I was trying to remember where I had heard this phrase before. Spoiler alert: the movie Runaway Bride)
- “white and yellow kill a fellow” (Something to do with which berries are edible, but I have no idea what prompted me to acquire this information)
- “brad pitts face jesus abs” (500 Days of Summer! Great line)
Another thing I had to search recently? “How to cut a mango.” I mean, when you buy a mango, it’s pretty much a big blob. Who even knows where you are supposed to start? The answer, apparently, is to do this (FYI, I used that method and it worked well). Perhaps if you are a super smart mango expert, you would have already known how to cut one but, friends, a mango expert I am not.
And that is why I love the internet. If I were from a different generation and attempting to learn how to cook, how would I ever figure anything out? Seriously, for every new recipe I try, I generally have to Google at least one thing (and often more). And, more often than not, the internet has the answer.
All of this is a very long way of saying that I had to learn to cut a mango so I could make Strawberry Mango Basil Salsa (the recipe can be found on How Sweet It Is). I’m actually not that big a fan of normal salsa, but this fruity version caught my eye and just so happens to be excellent. I have paired fruit salsa with cinnamon chips in the past, but this time around, I just used plain old tortilla chips and it tasted delicious – you gotta love that combination of sweet and salty.
I highly recommend whipping up a batch of this stuff for your next party (even if you have to Google “how to cut a mango” in order to do it).
