Why We Love This Mango SalsaI asked my husband what we should say about this Mango Salsa and the first words that came out of his mouth were, “I don’t think we’ve ever had leftovers!” I think that says a lot about this recipe. It tastes like a mango Guacamole and we can’t get enough.
As much as I love tomato-based Pico de Gallo and Homemade Salsa, this is a nice break from the acidity of tomatoes. We also love variety in our homemade salsa rotation. This Mango Salsa is my husband’s specialty and every time he tells me that he’s making it, it makes my night. Sometimes we skip dinner altogether and just share a big batch of this salsa with crunchy tortilla chips.
There’s something irresistible about sweet juicy mangos in salsa. The tropical mango flavor reminds me of Hawaii and who doesn’t want to feel like they are on vacation while eating salsa?
Only 5 IngredientsFresh Mango Salsa has just 5 ingredients and takes 10 minutes to prepare. It’s also very easy to scale up if you want a bigger batch. We almost always double it!
  • Mango: for the perfect ripe mango, look for one that is plump and round, slightly soft but not mushy
  • Avocado: Adds a delicious creaminess to the salsa
  • Red Onion: diced red onions provide mild flavor and add color to this fresh salsa
  • Cilantro: our go-to fresh herb for salsa
  • Lime Juice: freshly squeezed from the lime is best, if needed substitute fresh lemon juice VariationsMango Salsa is versatile and you can change it up for a different flavor profile.
    • Red Bell Pepper – add 1/2 seeded and diced bell pepper for a bit of crunch and sweetness
    • Pineapple – add a cup of diced fresh pineapple for a tropical twist
    • Shrimp – you can add protein and turn it into a Mango Shrimp Salsa.
    • Beans – you can add rinsed cooked black beans for protein and to make it a heartier salsa
    • Spicy Peppers – If you prefer to add some heat, toss in some finely chopped fresh or canned jalapeños. We love spicy salsas, so I often sneak in hot peppers and have even been known to add super spicy serrano peppers.
    How to Make Mango Salsa
  • In a medium bowl, combine diced mango, avocado, finely chopped red onion, and chopped cilantro.
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice (we love this citrus juicer) over the top of diced ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently to combine then serve.Serve Mango Salsa WithNo matter how you choose to serve this truly scrumptious salsa, you are sure to have a crowd-pleasing dish that is gone in minutes! I love to serve it as:
    • An Appetizer – paired with tortilla chips or on tostadas. You could also spoon it over bruschetta or crostini.
    • Grilled Meats – spoon over Cilantro Lime Chicken, grilled pork tenderloin, grilled salmon, or grilled steak. The sweet and smoky contrast is irresistibly good.
    • On Tacos – try it with our Fish Tacos or over Beef Tacos. It’s also delicious with Shrimp Tacos.
    • Seafood – Serve this over Baked Salmon, Air Fryer Salmon, shrimp, or scallops.
    Storing Mango SalsaTo Refrigerate: Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly over the surface of the mango salsa and refrigerate. Keeping the air out will help prevent the avocado from browning and discoloring. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 days.
