Mango Salsa

I love to fill my plate with the colors of the rainbow, and this Mango Salsa gets the job done in one fell swoop. With its stunning and fresh array of veggies and mango, it brings a whole new layer of fun flavor to regular salsa. Plus, it takes no time to throw together before a party and looks beautiful enough to showcase on a big table of fresh summer foods!

You can totally make this salsa your own, too. If you like a lot of spice, add more jalapeno or a shake of cayenne pepper! If you enjoy the fresh flavors of lime and cilantro, double them up. For those who like smokier salsa, you can always grill or roast your peppers, onion, and even the mango before mixing them together for more depth of flavor. Pile this good stuff high on tortilla chips; it also goes swimmingly (hehe) on grilled fish or fish tacos.

How long does Mango Salsa keep?

Because this is a really fresh salsa, you’ll want to enjoy it within a few days, three maximum. It can get a little watery after a day or two, but it will still taste delicious and fresh!

What does Mango Salsa go with?

Mango salsa goes great on anything you’d put regular salsa on! The tropical element of fruit brings even more freshness to seafood dishes especially. You can dish it up on fish, pork, chicken, tacos, or just plain chips.

How do you make Mango Salsa?

This salsa couldn’t be easier, and it comes together in just a few minutes (although, you’ll want to let it sit for about 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to mix). Just chop everything up, and mix it all together with some salt, pepper, and lime juice! You’ll be ready to rock and roll in no time.

Description

Vibrant, bright flavors come together in my Mango Salsa. Made with red bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and of course, the star of this show: fresh mango!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe mangos
  • 1/2 of a cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped, optional
  • Juice of one lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. To cut the mango, remove the skin like you are peeling a potato with a knife.
  2. Once the skin is removed, slice off hunks of the flesh to gradually remove the seed in the middle. Chop all of the chunks to bite-sized pieces.
  3. Combine the mango with the rest of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. All ingredients should be measured to taste.
  4. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Enjoy!

Notes

  • This is so flexible! Want it hot? Add more jalapeno! Love cilantro or lime? Double them! Make this recipe your own. Just don’t be shy with the salt–it really makes it come together.
  • This salsa is great over grilled fish or on fish tacos.
