Mango Salsa Ingredients

Mangoes – Fresh ripe mangoes work best, of course! Frozen mangoes do work well in this recipe, too. If using frozen, thaw and chop.

To cut mangoes, cut along the pit through the center of the fruit (top to bottom). Use a sharp knife to score the mango right in the peel. Scoop the flesh out with a spoon and add to the bowl.

Peppers – Red bell peppers add crunch and freshness while jalapenos add a little kick.

Onion – I love red onion in this recipe but sweet white onion works too.

Lime – Fresh lime juice will make the best results. To juice it quickly, cut the lime in half and stick a fork in it. Squeeze the lime around the fork to release the juices.

Seasoning – Salt, cumin, and a dash of olive oil are all that’s needed.

  • Add avocados, (just before serving) garlic, pineapple, or tomatoes for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Be sure to let the salsa sit for at least 30 minutes for flavors to meld.

  • This salsa is best when it’s cold so be sure to store in the refrigerator before serving.

What to Serve with Mango Salsa

Mango salsa is a perfect topping for fish and seafood, like shrimp tacos and grilled salmon, but it also makes a great dip for chips and crackers! Mixed with softened cream cheese, mango salsa makes an elegant spread on a burger or in a vegetarian sandwich!

Add or substitute equal amounts of fresh pineapple or fresh peaches for a different twist. This recipe is so versatile, so healthy and so easy to make, it’ll be a summer staple every year!

Storing Leftovers

Mango salsa will last about 5 days in the refrigerator. Before serving again, stir and refresh the flavors by adding a little splash of lime juice and salt and pepper.

Can You Freeze Mango Salsa?

Mango salsa can be frozen by putting it in an airtight container or zippered bag that is labeled for up to about 3 months. However, it will not be as firm once it is thawed. Drain the extra water and add some new diced mangos or fruit like pineapple or peach for a whole new look and taste!
