This fresh Mango Pico De Gallo is one of our summer favorites. It has a sweet and savory combination that pairs well with so many dishes. This spicy mango salsa is good.

Mangos have been on sale at the grocery store lately and it’s the best time of year to eat them. They have a soft texture, sweet
flavor that we love on tacos, sushi, with chips and on it’s own as a dessert or snack.

The fresh onions and jalapeño add a delicious crunch to the mango salsa. The lime juice and cilantro bring it all together. I promise you the jalapeño bits and mango don’t make it overly spicy but you can easily leave the jalapeño out. We ate an entire batch with tortilla chips the first round of recipe testing and then later ventured out having it on fish tacos by the second batch.

Ingredients Needed For Mango Pico De Gallo

The Best Fresh Mango Salsa ingredients

Mango. Fresh mangos, that aren’t overly ripe will work best. They can’t be overly soft otherwise they won’t have a good texture for the pico de gallo.

Jalapeño. This adds a nice green crunch and some spice to the mix.

Lime. Fresh lime juice adds a bright citrus to the salsa.

Red Onion. Red onion is spicy, strong in flavor and adds beautiful pop of purple.

Cilantro. Fresh cilantro is in all pico de gallo recipes, it’s a must.

Avocado. Fresh, firm avocado adds a creamy flavor and keeps the heat at a minimum.

Steps To Make This Spicy Mango Salsa

Step One. Peel or slice the skin off with a pairing knife. Carefully chop mango. Finely chop all of the above ingredients. Be sure to discard jalapeños seeds and white fleshy part. Add all ingredients to a bowl and lightly toss together. Squeeze or pour lime juice over the top. Add a pinch of salt, give it one more toss and enjoy. This is great with chips, crackers or on tacos like my Blackened Salmon Tacos.
