Fresh Mango Salsa

This fresh mango salsa is bursting with flavour. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it will last up to 5 days in your refrigerator. Perfect to serve with your next Mexican meal.

I’m going to be really honest with you. I never used to like salsa at all. In fact, there are still many types of salsa I don’t like.

It wasn’t until I tried making my own, with fresh ingredients, that I realized what I didn’t like about it. Turns out it is the blended tomato based salsas I don’t like.

This salsa is chunky, fresh and full of bright flavours. It is really just a Mexican salad that you eat with tortilla chips.

The mango adds a nice, subtle sweetness that balances well with the jalapeños and tangy lime.

I like to use grape tomatoes as they are a bit firmer and less acidic than regular tomatoes, but feel free to use what you like. Be sure to use fresh herbs and fresh squeezed lime juice, trust me, it makes a difference.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Grape or cherry tomatoes – diced Roma tomatoes will also work
  • Mango – Any type
  • Red onion – milder than white, but you can use what you like
  • Jalapeño peppers – remove the seeds for milder spice
  • Cilantro – Can omit if you don’t like cilantro
  • Lime – Fresh is best, but bottled will also work

Step by Step Instructions

Start by dicing all your veggies and place them in a large bowl.

Then squeeze your fresh lime on top and give everything a stir.

Your fresh mango salsa is now ready to serve!

You can serve it right away, but if you can wait, even 30 minutes, it really does taste better after the flavours have had a chance to develop.

How to serve

This salsa is great served with tortilla chips, but my favourite way to serve it is on homemade fish tacos.

You can even eat it out of the bowl with a spoon. I won’t judge!
