This 5-ingredient mango salsa recipe is quick and easy to make, and always so fresh and delicious.
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 simple ingredients.
