Tweaks and Variations

You can change the main flavour of the salsa by using another kind of fruit altogether. Fresh ripe mango salsa is great but then so is fresh pineapple salsa or fresh peach salsa. Let your imagination inspire you to try a brand new flavour experience.

You can also adjust the spice level if you wish or sub basil for the fresh cilantro. Also, red onions work well but you could try green onions instead if you want, or even white onions or sweet onions such as Vidalia, for a slightly different result. Or add a drizzle of your favourite extra-virgin olive oil.

You can use any kind of chilli pepper in a fresh mango salsa recipe. Perhaps you’d prefer jalapenos or serranos. Feel free to switch the green bell pepper for another colour. I love the savoury flavour of green bell pepper in this otherwise sweet and rip mango recipe, but you might like to use red or yellow instead. Or some of each perhaps.

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.

Fresh Mango Salsa FAQs

How do you know if a mango is ripe?

There’s only one way to test your mango for ripeness and that’s to give it a squeeze. If it’s rock hard, it’s not ripe and won’t be good in this recipe. If it has a moderate amount of “give” then it’s ripe and will be perfect.

What can you do with leftover mango?

If you have fruit left over after making this summer salsa recipe with mangoes, there are plenty of uses for them. Add mangoes to your breakfast cereal, make a mango fruit salad or enjoy them with vanilla ice cream. You can add chopped mango to salads and desserts or even enjoy it by itself for a sweet treat.

What’s the best way to keep leftovers?

Keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use within a few days, perhaps with homemade fish tacos or similar. Don’t freeze the salsa though, else it will be mushy when it thaws. Salsa is always best served fresh.
