This easy and fresh summer mango salsa recipe is terrific for scooping up with chips. I bet you will see it disappear in a snap when served with corn chips (tortillas). Serve it as a spread over bread or grilled fish or chicken you have meal on the plate. Easy summer mango salsa heralds the arrival of summer. Let’s get those picnic hats out.
Mango salsa is one of those most simple yet delicious dip or side recipe. This 10 minute mango salsa is all you need to your summer party started. 10 minutes I say for all the chopping work to get done. I wouldn’t brag but I posses OK skills with knife and I do work well with chopping. No I don’t chop like frantic chefs that you see on those TV shows :D. And I do chop like a typical home chef and not a profession, but still I believe my chopping skills is great, yea :D. Wait……Does that sound like bragging anyways? LOL
The thing with salsa is you can chop the ingredients as fine/small as you like. But with mangoes it’s better when you have them cut in chunks, not so large and not so tiny too. With mangoes you want to get a mouth full of those delicious mangoes to enjoy, relish and take it all in slowly. Mmmmmm
The mango adds a slight sweetness to the salsa and paired with the tang from the lime and spiciness from the jalapenos, it was truly a treat for my taste buds. Bright vibrant colored mango salsa makes a perfect dip and spread for any parties to get started.
Mangoes in India are much sweeter (I guess), I haven’t actually tasted the mangoes from other countries, but heard quite a lot from friends who come back from foreign and say the Indian mangoes are so much more better than any other mangoes. So if you are using any sweet mango for making this salsa do try to oomph it up with a little extra jalapeno to get that extra kick. By now you guys know my love affair with spices and spicy savory food. So for my taste I use jalapenos with seeds, yes seeds on. That spice is needed to balance out the sweet from mangoes. And for extra crunch I added red bell peppers too. It was truly the best homemade mango salsa. I served it with corn nachos and also used them up in fish tacos (recipe coming up soon).
If you haven’t tried fish tacos with fruity amazing mango salsa then you are in for a treat! I’ve had many tacos before, but I never had a fish taco that was as DELICIOUS and fresh as these. This is everything you need for the warmer days – well seasoned tilapia fish, fruity summery easy to make and ridiculously tasty summer mango salsa all folded in a warm corn tortillas from the grill. A perfect summer meal that you can easily carry it on for summer picnic in your basket too. It’s fun layering up and building your own taco while you sit under the shade of a tree with sweet breeze. Get the kids to build their own tacos. It’s a wonderful fun time with family.

How do you cut a mango?
Select a nice firm and ripe mango first. Very important step. Wash the mangoes well. Slice each side just past the seed. Make the same cut on the other side. You got out most of the mango flesh. Then cut the flesh into grid like pattern without going through the skin(first slice the flesh without going through the skin, turn it and make dice cut again without going through the skin). Use a large spoon to scoop out the flesh from skin. You have diced mangoes – nice and easy.
