Mango Salsa

by | Apr 28, 2016 | All, Appetizers

Fresh, packed full of flavor and just 4 ingredients, this Mango Salsa is just what summer ordered.

This flavor packed, 4 ingredient Mango Salsa is the perfect partner with chips or is a tasty topping for fish and chicken.

I used to have a take-it-or-leave-it attitude about mangoes. Sure I would eat them if they were served, but I never really did a whole lot with them at home. Don’t get me wrong I always loved the flavor of them, but I was intimidated by them. I know, crazy huh? Intimidated by a mango?

Here’s a secret – I couldn’t cut a mango to save my life. The pit was a problem, and I would end up with half of the mango mangled and unusable. Then I discovered the mango splitter.  Life changing, I tell you. And now I can’t get enough Mango Salsa.

Mangoes instantly transport me to a tropical state of mind. My favorite way to nosh on them is in this Mango Salsa. Just 4 ingredients chopped and diced in a bowl, sprinkled with salt and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. The spicy jalapeno is the such a perfect balance with the sweet, juicy mango and cilantro just makes every salsa better.

Any excuse I have to use chips instead of utensils puts this chip and dip loving girl is in heaven. But don’t you worry, this Mango Salsa is uber versatile. Eat it as an appetizer with lime tortilla chips or serve it with some grilled fish or chicken. Simple, fresh and flavorful…summer at its best.

    I’ve been eyeing the mango slicer for a while, wondering if it was worth the purchase, and the cluttering of another kitchen tool in my drawers/cupboards. I love serving mango’s plain or in salad, but always get irritated when slicing. Sounds like this tool is worth it. Can’t wait to try this salsa. Sounds perfect for munching on with chips:)

      Yes, you can make it the day before. Sometimes I add a little more cilantro right before serving for the vibrant green color! Enjoy!

    Try a little Frank’s Hot Sauce on mango. It takes two or three tastes. One has to give it a chance. It’s great, though!
