Mango Salsa

This homemade salsa is light, flavorful, colorful, and absolutely delicious! It’s a cheaper and healthier alternative to store-bought salsa and would make a great appetizer or contribution to a party—try serving it with sliced cucumber and bell peppers “scoops” as extra-healthy alternatives to tortilla chips! It also can be used as a topping for salad, accompaniment to chicken or fish, filling for an omelet, or side dish for any meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 yellow or red onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 jalapeno
  • Bunch cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  1. Cut mango, pepper, cucumber, onion, tomato, jalapeno, and cilantro into tiny pieces.
  2. Mix ingredients together and add lime juice
  3. Allow salsa to sit in fridge for at least 2 hours for flavors to absorb.
  4. Enjoy!

Note: You can modify the ingredients based on what taste you’re looking for or what vegetables you have on hand. A higher ratio of mango will make it sweeter; more jalapenos makes it hotter; more bell peppers makes it crunchier. You can also substitute the mango for peaches, pineapple, or any fruit with a similar texture. Just don’t leave out the cilantro—that’s crucial for the “salsa” taste!
