Whether paired with grilled chicken, fish tacos, or simply enjoyed with crunchy tortilla chips, this mango salsa will add a tropical twist to your culinary adventures.

  • 2 ripe mangoes, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional, for added sweetness)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Begin by preparing all the ingredients. Peel and dice the ripe mangoes, dice the red bell pepper, finely chop the red onion, mince the jalapeño pepper (remove seeds for less heat if desired), and chop the fresh cilantro.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced mangoes, diced red bell pepper, chopped red onion, minced jalapeño pepper, and chopped cilantro. Toss gently to mix everything together evenly.
  3. Squeeze the juice of two limes over the mango mixture. The lime juice adds a refreshing tanginess to the salsa and helps to enhance the flavors of the other ingredients.
  4. If you prefer a sweeter salsa, you can add a tablespoon of honey to the mixture. This will complement the natural sweetness of the mangoes and balance out the acidity from the lime juice.
  5. Season the mango salsa with salt and pepper to taste. Start with a small amount and adjust according to your preference. Remember, you can always add more seasoning later, so start conservatively.
  6. For best results, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mango salsa for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. This step is optional but recommended for a more flavorful salsa.
  7. Once chilled, give the salsa a final stir, then transfer it to a serving bowl. Garnish with additional cilantro leaves if desired.
  8. Serve the mango salsa alongside your favorite dishes, such as grilled chicken, fish tacos, shrimp skewers, or simply enjoy it with crispy tortilla chips as a refreshing snack.
  9. Any leftover mango salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Be sure to give it a good stir before serving leftovers.
