We love finding new recipes to make and enjoy, and as summer approaches, we especially love recipes that are cool, light and fresh.
We also tend to make heavy recipes with fruit, like today’s mango salad (with pineapple!), perfect for those hot summer days. Absolutely no cooking or baking involved. Just chop everything up, add some lime juice and lemon zest, a pinch or two of salt, and you’re done!
We’ve always been big fans of salsa! We had homemade salsa, corn salsa and verde salsa (green salsa). Adding this sweet salsa to our go-to list would be perfect for all of our Mexican recipes.
How to Make Mango Salsa
As with any recipe, you can customize it with your favorite ingredients. Not all mango salads have pineapple, but we decided to add it for more sweetness. Here are some other common ingredients that make a great addition to your mango salad:
- red bell pepper
- Green pepper
- black pepper
- lime juice
- lemon juice
One of the best things about mango salsa is the sweet and savory combination it offers, so don’t be nervous, but the fruit and veggies can make your own custom mango salsa. 😉
Can the mango salsa be made ahead? Yes, make it as directed and keep this place in an airtight container until ready to serve. While this salsa will keep for a few days in the refrigerator, we recommend eating it within 24 hours of making it.
Can you freeze mango salsa? You can freeze mango salad in an airtight container for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving, adding any extra lime juice if desired.
The only thing about this salsa is that it needs to be eaten an hour or so after it’s made. Otherwise the pineapple starts to brown. It’s definitely not a problem because this salsa is absolutely delicious and I’m sure it will be gone in no time!
