Mango-Habanero Salsa

"This salsa has a complex aroma, but it remains light and tropical, with a fruity taste and lots of heat. It's excellent with fish and chicken dishes, and benefits from an overnight wait to allow the flavors to mix. Those not accustomed to really spicy food may wish to start with just one--or even a half--habanero pepper, although it's essential to the flavor of the salsa." --CL Reader
