You might have never heard of Mango Salsa, but it's one of my favorite fresh salsas to make in the summer. I love mangoes and haven't found a mango recipe that I didn't love yet! This was one of my first videos that I made, so I feel it's not really good, but everyone has to start somewhere! You can see how easy it is to make!
When mango season is in full swing, I love making various mango recipes. Here in Australia, during mango season, they sell boxes of sweet mangoes. I can't help my self, I always buy a box because as I said, I love mangoes! It's not summer unless I buy mangoes. Then I need to get creative to use up all the fruit that I bought. I make a killer Sweet Mango Chili Sauce which we use as a dip or sauce.
Mangoes are known as the King of Fruits and have been enjoyed for over 6000 years. They originated in South Asia, and are used in a wide varieties of cuisines from drinks to ice creams to salads. It's truly one of my favorite fruits! This mango salsa recipe has the perfect balance of sweetness from the mango, with the spicy flavors of a salsa.
What Goes Good With Mango Salsa?
You might never have tried or even heard of Mango Salsa before. This recipe is so easy to make, and the perfect summer salsa to eat with grilled fish or chicken. Just grill them and spoon the salsa on top, it tastes amazing. You can use it as a traditional dip for nacho chips. Use it inside tacos, or even with on a chicken burger.

Ripe mangoes will add the nicest flavor and sweetness to this snack. If your mangoes are green, you will need to add a teaspoon of sugar. It might sound strange, but tart mangoes will ruin this salsa. Remember to taste and adjust if necessary.
Is Mango Salsa Spicy?
You control the heat in this Mango Salsa recipe. The jalapeños add a nice spicy kick, but are a milder chili pepper. If you like spicer salsa, try adding Habanero Peppers. For a more pickled salsa flavor, add the apple cider vinegar.
