5-Ingredient Mango Salsa

One of the things I love best about living in my neighborhood is the almost daily conversations that everyone has about fresh produce.

Nope, not the weather.  Fresh produce.

This is entirely due to the fact that we live across the street from the largest outdoor market in Kansas City.  On the weekends, literally thousands and thousands of people from across the city pack into our neighborhood to visit the market.  But during the weekdays, it is blissfully chill and much quieter.  But the other bonus is that all of the weekend’s produce is mega discounted.

So it’s not unusual to walk into the coffee shop in the morning and hear people talking about the $1 huge carton of strawberries they scored the day before and ate for breakfast.  Nor is it unusual to pass someone on the stairwell of our loft and have them eagerly tip you off that avocadoes are 2/$1 that afternoon.  It makes me adore my neighborhood even more.  But last week, pretty sure I was the one texting, Facebook messaging, and telling everyone in sight that for the first time in months, mangoes were on sale!!!  My favorite fruit ever!  $4/1!  And perfectly ripe and delicious!

So I, of course, came home with 8.  And then promptly used a few to make my go-to favorite recipe for surplus mangoes — mango salsa.

I can’t even count the number of times that I have made mango salsa throughout the years.  As far as fruity salsas go, it’s easily my favorite.  And whenever I serve it to a crowd, others apparently share the love because it always disappears in a snap.

I took it to my neighbor night gathering last week when we were celebrating Seis de Mayo (yes, extending the Cinco de Mayo Mexi food extravaganza as long as possible).  And before I hardly had a few bites, it had disappeared.  Everyone loves mango salsa!

The good news is that it’s also ridiculously easy to make.  And if you want to go the minimal route, you can make a fantastic version with just 5 ingredients!

Sure, you can add in cumin or extra fruit or avocado or whatever else you may like.  But the basic 5 ingredients definitely hold their own.  You just need fresh mangoes (not frozen!), red onion, fresh cilantro, jalapeno and lime juice.

…and dive in!!!

This salsa is obviously fantastic served with just chips.  But it’s also great on grilled fish (or in fish tacos), chicken, pork, or even tossed with some lettuce and a light vinaigrette to make a fruity green salad.  You basically can’t go wrong with it.

Especially when it’s made with fabulously ripe mangoes from my market.  Makes me happy.  :)

  4. In addition to the above 5 ingredients, I add a small amount of finely grated fresh ginger, finely chopped red peppers ( small amount) and EVOO. Very colorful and delicious! I make this every week. I snack on it or put it on my grilled salmon!

    • We’re glad you enjoyed this, Gelila, and we think those additions sound wonderful — thanks for sharing!

  5. Mango Salsa is amazing, and this one looks so delicious. I make this in different variations and my fav one is Mango Salsa with Roasted Bell Peppers. That tastes brilliant.

  6. This is an amazing salsa! So easy, so quick to put together.

  7. I love mangoes. Guess they are my favorites. Lived in south Fla. where they grew in abundance. I would hear them thump the ground and run out and pick them up from adjacent neighbor’s yard. She was allergic to them. My husband made
    a huge lot of mando chutney one time during their growing season. So many bottles of chutney. Sooooo delicious!

  8. I made my own version of this! I just added red pepper though and like to make smaller batches. https://theresaannk.wordpress.com
