Basil Mango Pico De Gallo

I came across a recipe for Mango Pico De Gallo on a great site called
Our Best Bites and just had to try it. Using mangoes instead of tomatoes is a very unique twist on the typical Pico De Gallo and it was really delicious. But I cant just leave well enough alone, inspiration set in and I made it again with my own twist...basil...because everything tastes better with basil!...Give them both a try...very easy and very delicious!

1 large mango, finely cubed
1/4 of a red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lime
grated zest of 1 lime
1 tbsp olive oil
pinch of kosher salt, or more to your taste

-add all ingredients to a small serving bowl and gently stir together until well combined
-allow to sit for about 15 minutes, so that flavours can meld
-serve as a dip with tortilla chips

*makes about 1-1/2 cups
