Mango Salsa



Okay, I need to be perfectly clear here. Before I made this mango salsa, I HATED the concept of a fruity salsa. Just the thought of fruit being mixed with peppers made my stomach cringe and my eyes roll in disgust.

I originally made this mango salsa to please my husband. He always went on about how much he loved it and how he wished I wasn’t so weird about it. So I forced myself to make this recipe. The whole time that I was preparing it, I kept thinking about how crazy people are to enjoy such random foods mixed together. And then I tried it.

Words cannot describe the tastiness of this salsa. I can’t explain it because I still can’t believe that I liked it. I liked it so much that I ate 1/4 of the container of it before letting my husband know that it existed. Oops. 🙂 Even if you are weird about fruity salsa, I hope you try this. It is SO good!

  1. *3 mangoes
  2. *1/4-1/2 red onion, diced small
  3. *2-3 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced small
  4. *2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  5. *1 large handful of cilantro OR parsley OR half of each, washed and chopped
  6. *the juice of one lime
  7. *a splash of orange juice (approx. 1 tbsp.)
  8. *1 tsp. kosher salt
  9. *ground pepper to taste
  10. *tortilla chips (for dipping)
  1. Prepare the mangoes so that you end up with as much mango flesh as possible, diced and put in a large bowl.
  2. Add the red onion, jalapenos, and garlic. Use gloves when handling the jalapenos if your skin is sensitive.
  3. Add the cilantro/parsley, juice of a lime, a splash of orange juice, and salt and pepper. Mix together, taste and add spices/juices as desired. Enjoy!
  1. **If you aren't a big fan of onion, add less of it or add more mango.
  2. **Even though this recipe contains raw jalapenos, it isn't too spicy. The orange juice, lime juice, and mangoes help keep the sweet and spicy in a beautiful balance.
  3. **I used half cilantro and half parsley, because my hubby is one of those people who hate cilantro. It was VERY good this way.
  4. **I warn you now: this salsa is very addicting. Don't expect it to last more than one night! 🙂
