I 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 and I knew I needed to make a quick salsa as well.
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)
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.
If 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

Anything with mangoes is a winner in my book! Yum!!
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 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 how your recipes are always manageable. Thanks for sharing! This salsa looks like a real winner.
Yum 🙂 What a good idea!!
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!
