I love it on my fish tacos (any tacos really), grilled chicken, or steak. It also goes great with chips!


– 4 Roma tomatoes, diced

– 2 ripe mangos, pitted and diced

– 1/2 red onion, finely diced

– 2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and minced

– 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped

– Juice of 2 limes

– 1 tablespoon of salt (or to taste)


Prep the Ingredients 

Begin by gathering all your ingredients. Wash and dice the Roma tomatoes, ripe mangos, red onion, jalapeno peppers, and cilantro. Pro tip: Make sure your mangos are ripe yet firm for the best texture and flavor.

Combine the Goodness

In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, mangos, red onion, minced jalapeno peppers, and chopped cilantro. This colorful mix is already a feast for the eyes!

Lime It Up

Squeeze the juice of two fresh limes over the mixture. The lime juice adds a delightful tanginess that complements the sweetness of the mango and the earthiness of the cilantro.

Season to Perfection

Add a tablespoon of salt to the bowl, or adjust to your taste preferences. Remember, you can always add more salt later, so start with a little and adjust as needed.

Toss with Love

Gently toss all the ingredients together, ensuring the flavors meld harmoniously. The vibrant colors and fragrant aroma are simply irresistible.

Storage and Shelf Life

Mango salsa, when properly stored, can be enjoyed for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

To keep it fresh:

– Transfer the salsa into an airtight container. Ensure the container is clean and dry to prevent any moisture buildup.

– Press plastic wrap or parchment paper directly onto the surface of the salsa before sealing the container with a lid. This helps minimize air exposure, which can cause the salsa to lose its vibrancy and flavor.

– Store the container in the refrigerator, preferably on the top shelf where it’s cooler.

Before serving leftovers, give the salsa a good stir to reinvigorate the flavors. Remember, it’s always best enjoyed fresh, but with proper storage, you can savor the deliciousness for a few days.

So, there you have it – a delightful Mango Salsa recipe that’s perfect for enhancing your  dishes or brightening up any meal throughout the year. Its sweet and spicy profile is sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more.

Whether you’re serving it with tortilla chips, grilled chicken, fish tacos, or even as a topping for your favorite grilled meats, this mango salsa is a crowd-pleaser that will have your guests asking for the recipe. So, get chopping, mixing, and savoring the flavors of summer with this delightful salsa. Happy cooking!
