Mango Salsa | Salsa de Mango


With summer on the horizon, my creative juices have kicked into high gear with all-things-mango on my mind. This is just a taste of several mango-inspired creations that I will be sharing in the coming weeks.


I first tasted this mango salsa some years ago when my mother paired it with her famous honey-glazed salmon. It was refreshing both in concept and taste! The combination of sweet mango and spicy jalapeño provides a flavorful respite from the heat of the summer sun. Savor it with tortilla chips, fresh seafood, pork or poultry dishes and prepare to be transported to an exotic island with a cool tropical breeze. Be sure to stay tuned for more recipes inspired by one of my favorite tropical fruits and join in on the mango mania!


Sweet + spicy = perfect recipe for salsa!

2 large mangos peeled and flesh cubed (mangos should be ripe, but still firm)
3 jalapeños diced (or 2 serrano chile peppers)*
½ small purple onion diced
½ bunch fresh cilantro minced
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 orange freshly squeezed
½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)


  1. Mix mangoes, jalapeños, onion, and cilantro in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with red wine vinegar and fresh orange juice, then toss once again.
  3. Add salt, cover, and chill until ready to serve.

*Note: You may remove the veins and seeds from the jalapeño or serrano chile peppers to reduce the heat level of your salsa.

        Sooner than you think 😉 I was actually looking for a salsa recipe, although I was thinking of having both mango and papaya in the salsa.

    That sounds like a great addition! I love papaya.
