Chunky Mango Salsa Tips and Tricks

  • Use ripe mangoes for this Mexican fruit salsa. Ripe ones will be perfectly juicy and sweet. Unripe ones will be bland and stringy.
  • Puree leftover salsa to make a tasty sauce for grilled fish or chicken.
  • If you aren’t sure how much chilli to add, add half a chilli pepper at a time. It’s easy enough to add more.
  • It tastes best the day it’s made. But you can refrigerate leftover salsa made with fresh mangoes for up to 3 days. I’d be surprised if you have leftovers though!
  • Although this will freeze, the texture when thawed will be mushy. If you are set on freezing it, puree it first then serve it as a sauce.
  • If you are in a rush and don’t have much time to make this summer salsa recipe, you might not want to dice everything. You can roughly chop the ingredients in a food processor at a pinch.

Notes

Note 1: You can use any color. But the green ones are a bit less sweet and add a nice contrast to the sweetness of the mango.
If you don´t feel like chopping everything into small cubes you can let your food processor help. It will be less chunky and more like a chutney but still very tasty. Just clean everything, roughly chop it and shred a couple of time on pulse.
