Mango Salsa

Delicious mango salsaI love salsa. It’s got to be one of the best snacks in the world. Dips are just awesome. That’s a fact. But then salsa is fresh, healthy and absolutely delicious! I love how you can slightly change up the ingredient list and create so many different flavor combinations. So this week, as I was dreaming up healthy snack options (like these baked edamame and banana chips) I knew I needed to make a quick salsa as well.

Mango salsa ingredientsMango Salsa

2 ripe mangos
2-3 ripe tomatoes
1/3 white onion
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 jalapeno with the seeds removed (optional)
1 lime
salt to taste

I make salsa a couple different ways, depending on how impatient I’m being. 🙂 If you’re pressed for time then just throw the first six ingredients in a food processor and give it a quick chop. You don’t want to puree the mixture into a smoothie texture (salsa smoothie… um… no thanks). If you have a little more time, you can do this by hand, finely chopping each ingredient and stirring them together in a serving bowl. Last squeeze on the juice from one lime and give a generous sprinkle of salt. Taste and add more salt or citrus if needed.Mango salsa recipeIf you can’t find ripe mangos try using 2-3 ripe peaches instead. Peach salsa. Mmmmm. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did, I’m starting to dream about summer. 🙂 xo. Emma

  • Mmmm, I love salsa variations!! Great tip to do some of it in the food processor. I love eating mango salsa with swordfish steaks… it’s out of this world good.


  • Oh, I will definitely be trying this out soon! I love salsa and mangoes are my favorite fruit! 🙂 Thank you!

  • I love how your recipes are always manageable. Thanks for sharing! This salsa looks like a real winner.

  • I wonder what other kinds of fruit you could use? Tart apples, fresh pineapple,??? Has anyone used a different kind of fruit? What was it and how did it taste?

  • I love mango salsa! It started my obsession with mangos. You should try some jicama in it, its a Mexican turnip(sweet tasting). It gives it a little crunch in your salsa and makes it even more yummy 🙂

  • Looks awesome! Salsa is my favorite snack and I love finding new recipes!

  • I’ve just finished my menu plan for this week and was wondering what to serve with chicken korma this evening. Now I know! Thank you.

  • Oh my, this is going to do nothing to help aid my dip obsession.

  • This looks delicious! I need to make some for my sweet husband!

  • I’m mexican so, i recomend to use “serrano chiles” instead and add a little olive oil. It will taste way better 🙂

  • i love salsa! i’d go as far to say i have a salsa addiction. your mango salsa looks delicious!

  • Mmmm I love me some mango salsa! Definitely saving this recipe for summer 🙂


  • ooo yum yum! dips are probably my favorite food group no joke. this looks easy and delicious (my favorite combination)!


  • Oh wow! I love salsa and I love mangos. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I will definitely have to try it soon.

  • Wooow this seems so good ! I’m in a huge mango mood these days. Have you tried homemade mango sorbet ? You just need to freeze pieces of mango then put in in the blender with a little bit of orange juice or coconut milk. It’s delicious and so simple. 🙂

  • Wow, this sounds awesome! I love mango, and I love salsa, so win-win!!

  • OMG yum so excited to make this! Perfect for summer.

  • OH this looks so good! And simple! I’ll be giving it a go next weekend 🙂

  • I adore mango and limes, two of my favourite flavour combos and such a great way to eating something delicious and healthy.

    Gorgeous pictures too..


  • Dips are really fun to eat, alone or with friends! I love the idea of mixing up the textures and flavor by adding a fruit like mango as the base! Makes for a gorgeous presentation too!

  • i love salsa! cant imagine how it would taste with mango though 🙂

  • Yum, this salsa would go perfectly with the homemade tortilla chips that I’m kind of addicted to making (and eating) recently!!

  • I love mango salsa! Thanks for the recipe!


  • Dear Elsie & Emma,
    I just wanted to say I really enjoy reading your posts and perusing through all your little crafties. You guys have such an inspiring and refreshing blog. Sort of a little getaway from the normal stresses of life.
    I have a problem I would really love some tips for solving if you guys wouldn’t mind. I seem to have an unhealthy need for atleast one (sometimes more) cup of coffee everyday or I feel completely drained and sluggish throughout the day. I also tend to drink it while I’m studying or doing work at the desk because it helps me concentrate and focus on the task at hand. I’m 17 and in high school, so you can imagine how this need for caffeine has got me a little worried. I seem pretty healthy at present time but I really want to be able to stop while I’m ahead to prevent any problems for the future. I was just wondering if you guys had some alternatives for energy or tips for concentration, or even ways to stop drinking so much, so that I won’t have to depend on coffee. I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much!

  • so yum! i can’t wait to try this recipe out.
    thanks for sharing (:

  • Salsa is always at the top of my list when i doing summer dinner party’s. This looks so yummy! 🙂

  • mmmmmmmmmmm delicious, totally have to try ! 🙂

  • technically this is a pico, because you didn’t cook the tomatoes or peppers! authentic salsa makers roast them first!

  • Great recipe, can’t wait to try homemade salsa for once, thanks for sharing!

  • Yum! this sounds perfect for the upcoming warm months.
    thanks for sharing!

  • I love mango salsa! Actually any kind of salsa is good! Have you ever tried roasted tomatillo and mango salsa? The slight tartness of the tomatillos and the sweetness of the mangos goes great with carnitas.

  • Yummy!Never thought about making a salsa with mango,but this looks really good!


  • That looks so delicious! Home made salsa tastes so much better than store bought.

  • We make homemade salsa at home too, but we have a secret trick…add a shot of tequila to the bowl! It gives it a little zip.

  • This sounds like the perfect sunday snack. thanks for sharing.

  • Oo, yesrday I bough mango so that recie is perfect for me. xaxa.

  • Sounds scumptious!

    I’ve recently started a blog and to celebrate I’m giving away a bottle of Lady Million by Paco Rabanne. To enter just check out the post:


  • mmm, I’m so glad you posted this – I LOVE mango salsa, but I’ve never tried to make it for some reason. This looks so fresh and yummy.

  • Ooh salsa is amazing, I love it when it has a bit of a kick to it. I always east salsa with tortilla chips, which one day I’m hoping to have a go at making. I admit I’ve never added fruit to my salsa, so I’ll give that a try next time 🙂

  • yummy more mango recipes! i bought a mango at the weekend (used to just eating the dried stuff) and now i actually have something to make with it as we have a lot of left over tortilla chips. i’ll have to sub the lime for lemon juice tho but should be tasty either way.

  • This does not sound like something I would normally try, but not only does it look delicious, it sounds better and better the longer I think about it. Mmmm.


  • This is a super popular summer side dish for our family get togethers.
    We call our variation mango/piña pico de gallo but it’s pretty similar:
    red onion, cilantro, chopped mango and chopped pineapple, seedless jalapeño and a hint of lime all chopped up and eaten with Julios tortilla chips. I don’t know if you guys have Julios up in Missouri, but you must try some!

  • I love trying new salsas! I made a peach pineapple salsa for some swordfish that I grilled the other day – it was amazing! This looks pretty awesome too!

    xx Ashleigh

  • Brilliant idea! I Love to experiment if it comes to salsas. Definitely going to try out the peach salsa as well.

  • Oh my this looks so good! I love Salsa.

  • Ah! If I wasnt allergic to mango that looks heavenly! Definitely sharing this with my mango-loving co workers 🙂

  • I’m in love with pineapple salsa, I’ll definitely have to try this!

  • Mmmm… I must try this! I have being wanting to try using mango in a dish!

  • Yummy! I just made mango salsa guac! But I will for sure try this recipe too, thanks 🙂

  • yum! sounds delicious. i recently made a black bean and corn salsa so maybe i’ll add some mangoes next time and see how that goes. i love mixing sweet with savory!

  • Yum! This is how I make salsa, too, but haven’t made mango in a while. Mango (and peach) salsa is so good on grilled pork loin, too!

  • This looks delicious! I absolutely love salsa. Salsa and hummus are two of my all time favorite dips. I can’t wait to try this!

  • Yummy!!! I can not live without salsas and dips :3 they are a great companion, and this recipe sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing

  • Looks delicious and super healthy! I’m adding all those things to my shopping list now.
