If you are a fan of the sweet and spicy combination you will love this easy mango salsa. Sweet, ripe mangoes, spicy jalapenos, sharp red onion, tangy lime juice and fresh cilantro make for a flavor bomb salsa that will take your next Taco Tuesday to the next level! I also love mango salsa on salmon, or just as an appetizer at a party. Be sure to serve with plenty of corn chips for scooping it up!

What are the ingredients in Mango Salsa?

  • mangoes
  • jalapeño
  • red onion
  • cilantro
  • lime juice
  • salt

How to make Mango Salsa

  1. Peel and dice the mangoes.
  2. Finely dice the jalapeño and red onion. Be sure to remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeno before chopping if you want it to be less spicy. It is also a good idea to wear gloves when handling jalapenos or other hot peppers to avoid being burned by the oils.
  3. Chop the cilantro.
  4. Juice 1-2 limes. Fresh lime juice is best. I swear by my citrus juicer!
  5. Combine all ingredients, along with 1/4 tsp kosher salt, stir to combine. Taste and add more salt if needed. Allow to sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld.

What to serve with Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa makes a great topping for tacos, such as these fish tacos or these pork tacos. It is great as a stand alone dip with chips. Salmon with mango salsa is also an unexpected flavor combination. Try it with my Chili Lime Salmon. It’s also great as a salad topping, like in this salad.
