Mango Salsa: How to make it?
It’s SUPER EASY to make mango salsa at your home!
What is the secret to the best taste? Use a sweet, ripe, and fresh mango. Champagne (also known as Ataulfo, honey mango, or Tommy Atkins) and Tommy Atkins are our favorite varieties. The best mangoes to buy are those that have begun turning yellow or red but are not yet wrinkled. We let them ripen until they are a deep golden/red color and fragrant in a warm, shady spot.
To make salsa, you’ll only need to finely chop the mango, red pepper, jalapeno, and red onion. Add a squeeze of lime juice, some salt, and pepper, and then stir together. It’s time to serve it!
- One large mango (3/4 cup)
- Red bell pepper, finely chopped (1 cup).
- Finely chopped jalapeno, 2 Tbsp (1 small jalapeno yields about 2 Tbsp).
- 2 tbsp finely diced red onion (or substitute green onion for a mellower onion taste)
- 14 cups finely chopped cilantro
- Use 2-3 tablespoons of lime juice
- Half a teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- Toss all ingredients in a small bowl (mangos, bell peppers, jalapenos, red onions, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper). Add more salt to taste and adjust the flavors. You can also add jalapenos for heat or mangos for sweetness.
- Serve it with tortilla chips or in burrito bowls. You can also serve it on tacos.
- Fresh is best. In a refrigerator, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days. Not freezer-friendly.
