Fresh Mango Salsa Recipe

One of my favorite things about spring is all the fresh mangos I can get my hands on. They are sweet and delicious and taste great. But my favorite thing to do with them is to make raw mango salsa! It pairs super well with just about anything like our fish tacos or our grilled chicken skewers!

I like to throw it together for an afternoon snack with some delicious chips and then pull it out for a quick dinner filler too.

This homemade mango salsa adds the perfect flavor for salads as well. Really, there are endless things I use this salsa for. It’s a family favorite at our house and I can’t wait for it to be one of yours as well!

Tips and Tricks for Fresh Mango Salsa

  1. Thanks to the lime juice, this salsa avoids a lot of browning that can happen with mango salsa. However, if you want to store for a longer period of time in the fridge, squeeze a bit of extra lime juice on top before storing it.
  2. If you like your mango salsa spicier than the recipe calls for, mince another jalapeno and add it in. If you prefer less heat or your kiddos don’t like the kick, take all the seeds out of the jalapeno while mincing. 
  3. Mangos can be a little tricky to cut! They have a long pit in the center that you will need to cut around. Make sure that your mango is not overripe or it will be mushy and hard to cut!

How long does homemade salsa last in the fridge? 

The lime juice in this salsa will keep it pretty fresh, but since there is fruit in this recipe you won’t want to keep it longer than 4 or 5 days. 

To keep it extra fresh, squeeze a bit of extra lime juice on top of your salsa, place it in an air-tight container, and keep it in the fridge. 

How do you cut a mango for salsa? 

If you’ve never cut a mango before, here’s a quick method for dicing it for this salsa. It’s pretty simple once you learn how. There is a long pit in the center of the mango that you will want to cut around. Once you have cut around this you should be able to slice and dice the mango easily.

How can you tell if salsa has gone bad? 

What you mostly want to check for is discoloration and the texture of the salsa. The salsa should still be bright and not have any brown spots, and the mango shouldn’t be mushy. 

As long as it still looks fresh, you should be fine to serve it!
