Mangoes, mangoes, mangoes, are one of those fruits that make us think on a sunny day, beach time, and fun times! That's why when I get mangoes, all I can think of making is this tropical salsa!!!
This recipe is an everyone favorite, super simple to make, healthy, fresh, and fun, perfect for a relaxing day with friends by the pool or to watch a football game.
The combination of tomato, avocado, and mangoes, makes is recipe simple perfect. I prefer to use not too ripe mangoes; the best result is when using a semi ripped (yellow) mango, like the one in the picture below.
Also make sure you don't overmix, since we are using avocado, if you mix it too much you could smash it and change the look of the salsa.
My favorite way to eat this salsa is with corn tortilla chips, but it is also great with fish tacos!
Mango Tropical Salsa
¼ cup minced red onion
¼ cup minced red or orange bell pepper
2 ½ cups chopped tomatoes
1 ½ cups chopped mango
1 cup chopped avocado
¼ cup minced cilantro
⅓ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients together, mix well! Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 min before serving. Serve with chips
I recommend to make this salsa just 15 to 20 minutes before serving, it you make it to early it will get a little to soupy. Have everything chopped and ready and just put it together when your guest arrive.
