Refreshing Mango Cilantro Salsa Recipe

This is a super simple recipe that yields great results. The fruity goodness of this salsa goes well with chips, tacos, or meats. It is chunky enough to be a side dish or stand alone salad. Try serving it with a grilled salmon or some jerk chicken. The refreshing sweet taste of the mango comes through and highlights the best flavors of the rest of the meal.

Chunks of sweet, yellow mango bring lots of color to your table. Pile it on top of chicken breast, fish fillet, or a slice of roast pork. It goes well with fish tacos; just pile it into the taco on top of the fish. You could also bring a batch of this with you for lunch on a warm day; the fruit is filling and refreshing.

Choose ripe mangos if you are buying them the same day you want to use them, otherwise choose some that need to ripen a few days if you are buying them ahead of time. This is a recipe that you can make the day before if you are pressed for time. Fruit salsas are a delicious way to add flavor and nutrition to any meal. They go with so many different foods and they pair up well with the spicy onions and other ingredients often used in salsas. When you are looking for something different to spice up your menu, think of fruit salsas like this one. The mango brings a bit of exotic flavor and color to your everyday meal, elevating it from good to great.

As well as the lovely sweet mangos you will need red onion and cilantro, while the citrus flavor that works so well in this salsa recipe comes from both orange juice and lime juice. These ingredients just need to be tossed together and then the salsa should sit undisturbed for a while so all those tasty flavors can blend together.

You will love how all the ingredients go together nicely in this salsa, and absolutely everyone has the skills to put the ingredients together and prepare the salsa, since all that is necessary is chopping and stirring.
