Mango Salsa

Mango's are fun and a delicious treat in the summer. This salsa is a healthy, fresh take on the traditional tomato-based salsa. Using a mango adds a vibrant, sweet taste to the salsa and it is complimented by the heat of a jalapeno pepper. We used this recipe to make fish tacos, but it is also great on its own as a dip with nachos!

This recipe is best prepared a couple days ahead of time so the flavors can really settle.

Mango Salsa Ingredients

1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and diced
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 Jalapeño chile, minced (include ribs and seeds for a hotter taste if desired)
1 small cucumber, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
1 cup of frozen corn
3 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Chill for a day or two.

Here is a picture of my husband helping me cut up the jalapeño pepper! He is super cute, always wanting to help me out in the kitchen!
