Mango salsa has bright, fresh flavor that elevates a simple piece of fish or chicken, making for a meal that conjures images of dining in the tropics.


  • 1 ½ cups chopped mangoes (2 mangoes)
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice


  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine the chopped mango minced garlic and jalapeño pepper. Stir in the cilantro.
  2. Add the fresh squeeze lime juice to the salsa just prior to serving, and gently stir to combine.
  3. Serve the salsa over fish or chicken. Enjoy!


  • Adding the lime juice just before serving helps give the salsa a super fresh taste.
  • There are a wide variety of mangoes available. I like to use the Ataúlfo mango, also known as a Champagne mango.
  • Cutting mangoes can be tricky — this site has some good tips.
