Fresh Mango Salsa

Updated on August 4, 2012

Fresh Mango Salsa

4 stars from 1 rating of Fresh Mango Salsa

With summer here, the fruit and vegetable aisles in the stores are full of wonderful foods that are just waiting to be brought home! A few mangos made it home with us the other day. We were looking for something to pair with our chicken on the barbeque for dinner, so we decided to make our fresh mango salsa as a side.

I make this salsa often (even in the winter) because it tastes like summer!

Below are the ingredients we use as well as the instructions:

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 mango, cut up
  • 12 oz (1 container of grape or 1 large or 2 small) tomatoes, cut up
  • 1/2 onion (red or white or both), diced up
  • 1 jalapeno, diced up (remove seeds of you want it less spicy)
  • 2-3 TBSP cilantro, diced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP lime juice

Directions

  1. Dice up ingredients.
  2. When dicing jalapenos, either wear gloves or wash hands often. The juice from the jalapeno can cause skin to burn. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR EYES OR MOUTH WHILE CUTTING UP THE JALAPENO.
  3. Mix ingredients together in bowl.
  4. Chill for 1-2 hours if desire salsa cooler.
  5. Serve with chips or alongside fish, chicken, or red meat.

Variations

Sometimes, when mangoes are not available (or too expensive), I use peaches or even apples and pears. It is a different taste than regular salsa, more fruity, but pairs well with lots of dinner meats.

This fresh mango salsa goes well with breakfast. I top my scrambled eggs with this salsa or make a english muffin sandwich with eggs, breakfast patties, cheese, and this salsa. Yummy!

Other foods that we top with this salsa are:

quesadillas

rice

shrimp stir fries

pizza
