One of my favorite fruits combined with one of my favorite condiments: mango and salsa! If the best flavors had a dance party together, it would be titled: Mango Salsa. The perfect summer snack, appetizer, or side.
Refreshing, sweet, and tangy fresh mango salsa! Add it to tacos, eat it as a dip with pita, crackers, or chips. This is the perfect dish to make in as little as 10 minutes. This salsa is vegan and made with only 7 ingredients. It's something I love to make when mangos are in season and when I have guests over!
- Mangos. I used ataulfo mangos. These have worked the best for me while they're in season.
- Red onions.
- Pickled jalapeños- I use Mezzetta slices but you can use fresh jalapeños as well! If you use fresh, add juice of one lime with your recipe.
- Red bell peppers.
- Ground Cumin. I get this from the Indian grocery stores or my Mom makes it for me fresh. However, you can buy it online as well!
- Cilantro to garnish.
The easiest way to make fresh mango salsa is to add the red onions, jalapeños, red bell peppers, and garlic to a chopper like this one or hand dice everything. Peel and dice the mangos. Then add salt and ground cumin. Garnish with cilantro and serve cold!
💭 Top Tips
- Making the mango salsa in advance really helps the flavors really settle in. If I’m using this in the evening, I like to prep in the morning. I suggest giving prepping at least one hour if you have the time.
- Chop the ingredients smaller so you get the perfect salsa bites
- If you don’t have ground cumin, you can use taco seasoning. Adjust the salt since taco seasoning generally includes salt.

Fresh Mango Salsa

- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup ripe mango diced, I used ataulfo mangos
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- salt to taste
- cilantro to garnish
- In a small bowl, add the diced red onion, red bell pepper, pickled jalapeño, garlic, and mango. Combine well.
- Season with cumin and salt. Mix until well combined.
- Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately or keep refrigerated until time to serve! Serve with chips, crackers, or add to your favorite dish!
- If using a fresh jalapeño, add juice of one lime.
- I prefer to make this in advance and refrigerate so the flavors set in but it still tastes great if serving immediately!
- STORAGE SUGGESTIONS: I rarely have any leftovers! It tastes best fresh, however, if you do have leftovers, you can store the salsa covered in the refrigerator 3-4 days.
I always like mangos but this combination is really delicious
