The salsa is a good thing for children to learn how to make. This salsa also goes well with baked ham, or prawns. You could use pineapple instead of mango. The chilli gives it a kick. You could leave out if you want, but I find that people are becoming more adventurous these days. Folláin and Thai Gold each make a very good sweet chilli sauce.
