Tangy Fresh Mango Salsa Recipe

You can buy various types of mango salsa in supermarkets but like with many sauces, nothing tastes as good as homemade salsa. “Salsa” is the Spanish word for sauce. This fresh mango salsa recipe contains a mixture of fruit, vegetables, limejuice and more. The result is a wonderfully sweet salsa recipe.

Salsas are also popular in Asian cuisine and you might have had mango salsa in an Indian restaurant. Of course, in India, it would be known as chutney and the Indian version is a lot sweeter and has a different texture. You can use papaya instead of mango, for a different result. The following recipe for mango salsa is very easy and you can keep the salsa for a few days in the refrigerator.

Fresh mangoes are rich in vitamins and minerals and also in antioxidants. They are low in calories but high in fiber. Mango salsa is a Mexican food recipe, which is great when served with pork tenderloin or with fish tacos. Chicken or blackened seafood recipes also go very well with this mango salsa and you can even serve it alongside a salad or with crunchy grilled vegetables. This salsa is unusual and makes a change from the tomato-based ones.

Making salsa is nearly as much of a joy as eating it, because not only are you working with lovely fresh produce, but making salsa is often a question of chopping the ingredients and tossing them together. There is nothing else you have to do, apart from washing your hands well if you have handled fresh chilies, and perhaps allowing the finished salsa to sit in the refrigerator for a few hours so the flavors can blend and mellow out. The sweetness of mango in this salsa gives it an exquisite flavor.

Fruity salsas like this mango salsa are always fantastic served with fish, and the sweetness of the mango, orange and pineapple combines beautifully with the other ingredients. The cilantro and lime add gentle accents to the overall taste while the jalapeño adds a touch of spice, and you can add as much or as little chili as you want. Serve this lovely salsa alongside fish, such as the pictured sea bass filet, to add color to the plate, as well as a distinctive south of the border flair, or have it with chips. This one is also nice served with blue cheese or added to a cheeseburger as a gourmet topping.
