Fresh Mango Salsa

I love making homemade salsa because it is easy, fresh, SO delicious. This homemade mango salsa is really going to blow your mind. It is one of my very favorite salsa recipes. Using fresh mango, bell pepper, onion, and jalapeño, this salsa is the most perfect marriage of spicy and sweet that you’ll keep coming back for more of. It’s also a really yummy topping for so many of your favorite main dishes, from tacos to chicken or fish…and you better believe it is good with salty tortilla chips, my personal favorite!

How to Cut a Mango

I think the main reason people avoid mango recipes is because choosing and cutting a mango feels a little intimidating. When you’re at the store choosing a mango, you’ll want to go by touch, not color. A good, ripe mango will give a bit when you squeeze it gently, while a hard mango isn’t yet ready to be eaten. To cut a mango:

  1. Locate the stem and make sure it’s on top. The pit of the mango runs from that top stem down to the bottom of the fruit!
  2. Cut about a quarter inch away from the center line vertically down the mango, keeping that stem on top. Do this on both sides.
  3. Now you’ve got two mango halves to work with! At this point you can scoop the flesh out with a spoon, or make cuts that stop at the peel before scooping it out cubed.
