Mango Salsa

Publication: Fifteen Spatulas

This Mango Salsa is light and refreshing, and can be eaten with chips, added to seared tropical fish like mahi mahi, chicken, and more. It’s simple to make and has tons of flavor! 

You can eat it as is with tortilla chips, or you can serve it with Seared Scallops, Chipotle Shrimp, Seared Snapper, and more. If you want something really easy, you can even serve it with a simple chicken breast and call it a day. It makes everything better! Plus, whenever served at a party, it goes SO fast. It’s one of those special dishes that people get really excited about, but is incredibly simple to make.


How to Make Mango Salsa:

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


Most keep it really simple and let the mango shine, but if you want you can add some other things to it.

Other Ingredients You Can Add to Mango Salsa:

Minced Jalapeno – Great if you want some heat and spice in the salsa. You can also add habanero, but that’s a lot spicier.

Avocado Chunks – Mango and avocado go beautifully together. Just note that if you add avocado, you can’t keep leftovers very long because the avocado will brown.

Pineapple – Fresh pineapple is a great ingredient to pair with the mango, to make it extra tropical with more flavor! Cut it into chunks and add it in.

Peaches – Great in the summertime when peaches are in at their best.

Black Beans – This takes it into a more savory direction, but mango and black beans go great together.

Corn – Some grilled corn is also a fantastic addition, and makes it more savory.


Peel the mangos and cut around the pit. Cut the mangos into chunks, then add chopped cilantro, finely diced red onion, and fresh lime juice:

Add a big pinch of salt, then toss it all together to combine:

The mango salsa can be made ahead, several hours in advance, and you can keep leftover mango salsa in the fridge for a few days before the flavors start to go downhill.
