- Begin by preparing the ingredients. Take a ripe mango and carefully peel off the skin. Then, using a sharp knife, finely chop the mango into small, bite-sized pieces. Proceed to finely chop the red onion, tomato, and cilantro as well. Make sure to remove the seeds from the tomato before chopping it.
- Grab a spacious bowl that can accommodate all the chopped ingredients. Place the mango, red onion, tomato, and cilantro into the bowl.
- Now, using a large fork or spoon, gently fold the ingredients together. Make sure to combine them evenly, so every bite of salsa is bursting with flavor. Take care not to mash the mango too much; you want to maintain its juicy texture.
- Once the mango salsa is well mixed, it's time to transfer it to a serving dish. Choose a bowl or platter that suits your style and complements the vibrant colors of the salsa. You can garnish it with a few sprigs of fresh cilantro for an extra touch of freshness.
Frequently Asked Questions
Mango salsa is best enjoyed fresh, as the flavors and textures are at their peak. However, if you have leftovers, you can store the salsa in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Keep in mind that the salsa might become watery as the mango releases its juices, so it's best to consume it within a day or two.
It's best to prepare mango salsa shortly before serving to maintain its freshness and vibrant flavors. However, you can chop the ingredients in advance and store them separately in the refrigerator. When you're ready to serve, simply combine the ingredients, season with lime juice and salt, and let the flavors meld together for a short period before enjoying.
