mango salsa ingredients
mango – Fresh, ripe mangoes work best, but frozen mangoes work well in this recipe as well. If you want to use it frozen, please defrost it and chop it.
pepper – Red peppers add crunch and freshness, and jalapenos add a little kick.
onion – Onions add flavor to this salsa. I love red onions in this recipe, but you can also use sweet white onions.
lime – Fresh lime juice adds tartness and brightness to the salsa.
seasoning – A sprinkle of salt, a dash of cumin and a touch of olive oil add a savory flavor.
To quickly juice a lime, cut it in half and insert a fork. Squeeze the lime around the fork and pour the juice into the bowl. No special juicers or tools required.
How to make mango salsa
- Cut the mango: To cut a mango, first hold the fruit upright and cut off the two “cheeks” (top to bottom) on either side of the seed. Without cutting the skin, make shallow cuts in a criss-cross pattern on each cheek. Then use a spoon to scoop out the mango cubes or cut off any remaining fruit around the seeds.
- Dice the ingredients. Cut the mango and red pepper into cubes. Chop the red onion and jalapeño (seeds give it a spicier flavor)!
- Seasons and ways to enjoy: Season and let all flavors marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Tips and variations
- Add avocado, garlic (just before serving), pineapple, or tomato for extra flavor.
- Be sure to let the salsa sit for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
- Chop all ingredients evenly for easy scooping.
- Add or substitute an equal amount of fresh pineapple or fresh peaches for another twist.
- This salsa is best served cold, so be sure to store it in the refrigerator before eating.
Mango salsa can be stored in the refrigerator for about 4 days. Stir in a pinch of lime juice, salt and pepper to refresh the taste before serving again.
Can mango salsa be frozen?
Mango salsa can be frozen in an airtight container or labeled ziplock bag for about 3 months. However, when thawed, it does not become so hard. Drain excess liquid and add new diced mango, pineapple, peach or other fruit to create a whole new salsa.
