Why We’re Crazy about this Mango Salsa:

There’s something irresistible about sweet juicy mangos in salsa. The fresh mango flavor carries you to your favorite tropical destination with every bite. Who doesn’t want to feel like they are on vacation eating salsa? When mangos are in season, this is on our regular rotation and always disappears fast.

5 Ingredient Mango Salsa:

Fresh Mango Salsa has just 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to prepare!

  • Mango: for the perfect fresh mango, look for one that is plump and round, slightly soft but not mushy
  • Avocado: Adds a delicious creaminess to the salsa
  • Red Onion: diced red onions provide mild flavor and add color to this fresh salsa
  • Cilantro: our go-to fresh herb for salsa
  • Lime Juice: freshly squeezed from the lime is best, if needed substitute fresh lemon juice

If you Love Spicy Salsa:

If you prefer to add some heat to this mango avocado salsa, you can toss in some finely chopped fresh or canned jalapeños. We love spicy salsas, so I often sneak in hot peppers and have even been known to add super spicy serrano peppers.

How to Make Mango Salsa:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine diced mango, avocado, finely chopped red onion, and chopped cilantro.
  2. Squeeze fresh lime juice (we love this hand juicer) over the top of diced ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently to combine then serve.

Make Ahead Tip: If not serving right away, cover with plastic wrap directly over the surface and refrigerate.

Our Favorite Ways to Serve Mango Salsa

No matter how you choose to serve this truly scrumptious salsa, you are sure to have a crowd-pleasing dish that is gone in minutes! I love to serve it as:

  •  An Appetizer – paired with tortilla chips or on tostadas
  • A Topping – over savory dishes like grilled chicken or our Grilled Salmon.
  • On Tacos – try it with our Fish Tacos or over Beef Tacos.

    Absolutely loved this recipe! It is now in our go to list. We put it over carne asada and it was all amazing together! I didn’t measure out the lime. I just squeezed a whole lime into it.
    I would put a picture but I do not see how to add it.

    I could eat a whole bowlful for a snack. My fishmonger suggested adding some finely diced jalapeño and/or finely diced red pepper. Try a variation to your taste. Serve with fresh halibut.

    I know this may seem silly but how do you know when the mango is fully ripe. I’ve had a few and they are hard

      Hi Linda, we like to give it a little squeeze at the store. It will give slightly indicating a softer flesh. If it is rock hard on the outside it will not be ready for a few days.

      Hi Inna, the closest thing would be parsley – I would suggest finely chopping and adding it to taste. It will give it a more Italian character, but I do think it will still work fine 🙂

    Beautiful rainbow of food and healthy! What more could one ask for =) Good luck house hunting! It’s a fun activity, isn’t it….even when you don’t need a house. We’ve been guilty of looking at houses on neighboring streets just to see what they go for and to see the inside of their homes!

      Yes I totally agree! When I was a realtor, my husband and I enjoyed touring homes in our free time (before children came into the pictures, now I’m not sure what free time really means anymore! lol). Thanks Laura 🙂

    oh, you sold your house ??? I was watching one of your recipes, and I was like, I don’t recall that kitchen from your house (unless you did a huge remodeling).
    Are you looking for bigger or smaller house? or you’re looking for bigger kitchen?
    ok anyway back to recipe, did you try adding grape tomatoes to this salsa? did it tasted as good as without it?

      Hi :). Yes we sold our house and we are living with my parents until we find the right home :). We would like a nicer kitchen and one that is better suited for video recording than our old one. It’s definitely a treat to work in my Mom’s kitchen :). I don’t think this salsa would be good with tomatoes. I haven’t tried adding them but I don’t think the flavors of tomato and avocado would work very well together.

        I think other than not caring for the combination of tomatoes and avocados, I think it would make the dip tooo wet and slithery. Just thinkin’ abf
