Mango Yellow Pepper Salsa Recipe

Bell peppers are one of those things, which you either love or hate – but of course, most people love them, especially in the summer when ripe, fresh yellow and red bell peppers are available in the markets. Rich in vitamin C and other nutrients and having just enough savory and sweet notes in their flavor, these peppers are just begging to be added to a summer salsa.

This mango yellow pepper salsa recipe does just that, adding an extra layer of deliciousness through the presence of ripe, juicy mango. Together with the tartness of lime juice and the savory flavors of onion and cilantro along with just the right amount of heat from jalapeno pepper, this salsa really hits the spot.

Try this salsa recipe with fresh bell peppers from your garden (if you happen to grow them) for a truly delicious experience. Mango yellow pepper salsa is terrific with chips and seafood, but feel free to try it out with anything you feel like.

Making this fragrant, fresh-tasting salsa is really simple. In fact so many people are surprised when they discover just how easy it is to make their own salsa instead of settling for the kind they sell in the store. Making salsa is usually just a matter of chopping and mixing ingredients together, and many salsa recipes do not even require any cooking, unless you want to roast one of the ingredients to make it juicier and sweeter, but even that is usually optional in such dishes.

Most salsas do benefit from being allowed to sit in the refrigerator overnight though, or at least for a few hours, to really blend the ingredients and give it a smoother flavor. The following recipe makes no mention of that, because we wanted to present this salsa as simply as possible, but a great tip would be to leave it to sit for a while before serving, and you should do that in the refrigerator. Eating it right away offers a good result but eating it after it has sat for a while offers a great result!

Photo Description:

Yellow bell pepper salsa is sweetened further with mango, then made aromatic and delicious by adding onion, chilies, and cilantro to the mix, as well as a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a typical Mexican flair. In the picture you can see this salsa is served with Jamaican jerk chicken, a spicy Caribbean dish, as well as rice and peas. This is to give you an idea of how to serve this. Although if you were to serve it with something as spicy as jerk chicken you would probably want to make the salsa less spicy, you can adapt the result however you wish. This salsa is easy to make, colorful, and very tasty indeed.
