What makes my Mango salsa recipe different from others online is it’s smooth salsa consistency, as opposed to a pico-de-gallo consistency. I love the texture and the way the flavors blend when pureed together and I love the added touch of flavor from a dash of cider vinegar. You can make the salsa mild, medium or hot depending on how you add the jalapeño.


  • Fresh mangos: Check for ripeness by gently squeezing it.  A ripe mango will be slightly soft but not at all mushy (similar to how you might check an avocado or peach for ripeness).  Smell it near the stem, looking for a sweet aroma, and choose a round, plump mango over a lean, flat one.
  • Red onion: these have a mild flavor that’s perfect for salsa and I love the color it adds.  Substitute a yellow onion or a sweet onion if needed.
  • Red bell pepper: Adds color and crunch….
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeño: for mild salsa, remove the seeds and membrane inside the jalapeño; for spicier salsa, leave all or part of the seeds and membrane.
  • Lime: fresh lime juice give the best flavor
  • Cider vinegar. Substitute white vinegar or rice vinegar if necessary.
  • Salt
