Mango Salsa Recipe

Yield: 8-10 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Mango salsa is a delicious fresh mango recipe. 5 ingredients is all it takes to make this mango salsa recipe. Serve with salty tortilla chips, top fish, chicken, tacos, and more.


  • 3-4 Mangoes, cubed
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 Jalapeno, sliced, and minced
  • 2 lime, squeezed for juice
  • 4-5 cilantro sticks, minced
  • Salt to taste, optional


  1. Start by prepping all your vegetables and the fruit. If you want a spicy salsa, leave the seeds in the jalapenos. Otherwise, cut pepper lengthwise and scrape out all the seeds and white vein. Rinse in water, then mince.

You can use a Serrano pepper in replace of the Jalapeno if you want.

Or for a very mild option use a green bell pepper.

You can use frozen mango in replace, but it will alter the texture of the salsa.

This salsa will store in the fridge for a few days. Just toss and then serve like fresh.
