Expert Tips

  • Make even cuts. When you are dicing mango, and onions, be sure to dice evenly. The more uniform cuts will make it easier to eat.
  • Use a food processor. When handling habanero peppers, be careful! They are hot and can burn you. It’s best to chop them in a food processor, so the oil doesn’t’ get all over your hands.
  • Pump up the heat! For added heat, add in more habanero peppers or some red pepper flakes.
  • Make ahead of time. If you are meal prepping, the mango salsa can be prepared up to 5 days in advance. Store in a sealed glass container for best results.
  • Pineapple is great too! Dice up some fresh pineapple and add to the mango salsa. It’s sweet and gives the perfect citrusy burst of flavor.

Can I use frozen mango?

No, to get the most out of this mango salsa, you really need fresh fruit. Frozen is better for smoothies or other dishes that it doesn’t matter if it gets a little soggy.

Can I add other fruit to mango salsa?

Yep! Fresh pineapple, peaches, and strawberries are all great options. The sweetness of the fruit with pair well with the spicy peppers and onions.

Do I have to use lime juice?

Nope, you can swap it for fresh lemon or orange juice. Both taste a little different, so it will affect the results of the salsa, but will still be pretty tasty.
