One of the things we love best about living in my neighborhood is the almost daily conversations that everyone has about fresh produce. Nope, not the weather. Fresh produce. But during the weekdays, it is blissfully chill and much quieter. But the other bonus is that all of the weekend’s produce is a mega discount.
We bet this mango salsa would be fantastic on fish tacos or just about any fresh, Mexican-themed dish, really. We can confirm that it goes well with chips, guacamole, and black bean tacos. You could also serve it with salad or just eat it straight out of the bowl as a salad. It’s that good. If this recipe gets you hooked on making homemade salsas be sure to check out my other salsa recipes.
We can’t even count the number of times that we have made mango salsa throughout the years. As far as fruity salsas go, it’s easily my favorite. And whenever we serve it to a crowd, others apparently share the love because it always disappears in a snap.
We took it to my neighbor night gathering last week when we were celebrating Seis de Mayo (yes, extending the Cinco de Mayo Mexico food extravaganza as long as possible). And before we hardly had a few bites, it had disappeared. Everyone loves mango salsa!
The good news is that it’s also ridiculously easy to make. And if you want to go the minimal route, you can make a fantastic version with just 5 ingredients!
- 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and diced (about 3 cups)
- 1 small red onion, peeled and diced
- 1-2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed
- juice of one lime
Toss all ingredients together until combined. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
