Mango Salsa
(I got this from the Food Network, it is served with Caribbean Salmon but I did NOT like the sauce for the Salmon. So I just BBQed mine on a flank and poured the salsa on it with butter rice on the side.. YUUMMMYYYY!!!)

For the salsa:

* 1/2 cup olive oil, plus extra for greasing the baking dish
* 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
* 1/4 C lime juice (from about 2 limes),plus 2 limes cut into wedges, for serving
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 2 mangoes, peeled, fruit cut off seed and diced
* 1 red bell pepper, halved, seeded, and finely diced
* 1 green bell pepper, halved, seeded and finely diced
* 1 yellow bell pepper, halved, seeded and finely diced
* 1 large red onion, halved and finely chopped
* 1 serrano chile, finely chopped, optional
* 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
* 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

* 1 whole side salmon (about 3 1/2 to 4 pounds)

For the salsa:
Peal garlic with a large knife smash the garlic, add the salt and some of the oil and continue to cut on the cutting board. Then press down with the flat side of the knife to release the juices.

Whisk the olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Add the mangoes, peppers, red onions, chile, and cilantro and toss to coat. Add the beans and gently toss everything together.
