Mango Salsa


Mangos must be in some sort of season right now, because all the grocery stores in my area have tons of them on sale! And when that happens, it means lots of mango salsa in my fridge.

I’m always shocked by how many people have never tried a mango before. They are easily one of my top three favorite fruits. They are so flavorful and sweet, and I love to either eat them on their own as a snack or turn them into this salsa. You can eat it with tortilla chips just as you would with a tomato salsa, or you can serve with chicken or fish, like a snapper. It’s lovely!

To start, gather up all your ingredients, which are mangos, fresh lime, red onion, and cilantro.


Sometimes I add really finely minced jalapeño depending on my mood, but that is optional, as it adds a lot of heat.

Peel the mangoes and cut around the pit (google how to cut a mango if you’ve never done it before). Cut the mangoes into chunks, then add chopped cilantro, finely diced red onion, and the juice of that lime:


Toss it all together:


Now it’s ready to be enjoyed!

Fresh Mango Salsa

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

  • juice of half a lime
  • pinch of salt


  1. Peel the mangos, then cut around the pit in the middle. Cut the mangos into large chunks. Mix together the mangos, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. The salsa is ready to enjoy! You can serve with tortilla chips, with fish, with chicken, and so on.
