Just one bite of this amazing homemade Mango Salsa and you will be hooked! It’s made with just a fresh fresh ingredients and minutes of your time, and can be served with chops, or topped on tacos, quesadillas, salads, burritos and more.
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….
- 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.
