This fresh mango salsa is perfect for entertaining – the juices from the ripe mango, tomatoes and lime just mingle together, make friends and create a burst of flavours in your mouth. Serve with salmon as a main course or with tortilla chips as an appetizer.
Several years ago my middle daughter Brooke asked me to throw a Hawaiian Luau party for her so I was faced with a challenge… What do I feed our guests? I quizzed everyone I knew and came up with: Pulled Pork sandwiches, grilled pineapple, and tortilla chips served with my fresh yummy mango salsa.
Truthfully, mango salsa is one of those recipes that I go to when I want to impress my friends and family without too much effort if you know what I mean… It’s so easy to whip up and tastes so fresh and unique with the whole sweet and savoury combo that everyone loves. They also think I’m super fancy for making it for them so lets keep this our little secret!
Mango is top on my list of favourite fruits. What’s not to love? Its sweet, tropical and just delicious, right? The secret to this recipe is you want to make sure you mango is fully ripe. It will make a huge difference .
What makes this spicy mango salsa recipe so refreshing is that the juices from the ripe mango, tomatoes and lime just mingle together, make friends and create a burst of flavours in your mouth. The jalapeño is optional although I highly suggest it even if you don’t love the heat you can still add in a little and it wont be crazy hot because you have the sweet mango to balance it out. I even love making this recipe as a side to compliment grilled fish like salmon steak (new favourite) … it tastes incredible together!
