  1. This looks so interesting but is there something that is less spicy than the jalapeno? I have very wimpy family but would still love to make this….any suggestions for a chili or pepper with less heat?

    Thank you

    1. Hey Kelly, thanks for your question. In fact, jalapenos are some of the milder chilies out there. To make sure they do not have any heat but still keep all their flavor, remove all seeds and veins and just stay with the flesh. I promise you this salad is not spicy at all 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for this wonderful Mango, Tomato, salad I can’t wait to do it. Everything is so awesome. I will definitely do it. I just love your show, I hope you will continue to be on the air for a long time. May God bless you and love you.

    1. Oh, I’m sorry you can’t find them. You can use more tomatoes and mango…the salad won’t have the same bite, but will still be great, Tina.
