Mango Salsa

  • Makes 2 cups
  • Preparation Time:


  • 2 cups peeled, chopped ripe mango
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

We use this tropical salsa on our Polenta with Black Beans, and it is also a great condiment for other Mexican recipes. For a snack, try rolling up a warm corn tortilla and using it to scoop up some of this flavorful salsa.


Put the mango, onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic, and vinegar into a bowl.

Add 1 tablespoon of warm tap water and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 1 week before serving.
