This could actually be considered a mango pico de gallo since “salsa” translated means “sauce” and this really isn’t much of a sauce. But I know, many restaurants and supermarkets label it as such. Either way, this is absolutely delicious and mad with fresh ingredients and no stovetop time (which I love!)
Here’s what I love about this salsa. It’s super easy to modify to your liking. If you don’t want jalapeño or cilantro, just omit it. Removing the jalapeño cuts the spiciness from it and leaves all of the sweetness. You can add more or less of any of the ingredients.
How do I pick a ripe mango?
The best advice I have for this would be find a mango that has some purple to it or is red and is very soft. When you press on it, it easily gives.
What can I eat with this salsa?
- Pan fried cajun fish
- Tortilla chips
- Shrimp tostadas
- Saltine crackers
- Shrimp tacos
- Chicken salad
- Shrimp tacos
Step by step process
Cut/chop all of your ingredients.
In a medium to large bowl combine the mangos, jalapeños, red onion, roma tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.
Taste test your mixture, if it’s not sweet enough to your liking, start by adding 1 teaspoon of sugar, or to taste.Print
Fresh, sweet, and juicy! Great as an appetizer or topping! Popular at many restaurants and supermarkets. Fave party snack!
- 4 mangos, cubed
- 1–2 jalapeños (seeded, deveined, and chopped)
- ½ medium red onion (or about ½ cup), chopped
- 2 large roma tomatoes, chopped
- ½ cup packed cilantro, roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
- 1 teaspoons salt, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
- Start by cutting/chopping all of your ingredients.
- For the mangos, I like to cut them off of the seed and then cut the pieces in half and then into cubes.
- In a medium to large bowl combine the chopped mangos, jalapeños, red onion, roma tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.
- Taste test your mixture, if it’s not sweet enough to your liking, start by adding 1 teaspoon of sugar, or to taste.
If you like it to be sweet, add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Gradually add more in ½ teaspoon increments until you achieve your desired sweetness. This would be a good idea if your mangos turn out to be less sweet, but it will vary every time because the sweetness varies from mango to mango.
