Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo Salsa is another variation of my Pico De Gallo Salsa made with a fresh mango, tomatoes, onion, minced garlic, fresh cilantro, a jalapeño, and lime juice.
The first sentence that describes what makes up Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo Salsa is basically also the recipe. The most important ingredient in this salsa is the mango.
You will probably start seeing mangos in the grocery store this time of year. Most mangos are from Mexico, Brazil, or Peru. Since mangos are the most important ingredient, it is important to know how to select a good quality mango for this salsa.
With the mangos coming from different countries, you may also see many different varieties, ranging from green to yellow to orange to red, or a combination of all those colors. In general, for most varieties, the more green a mango, the less ripe it is. The more ripe it is, the more shades or red or yellow. However, that is not the case for all varieties. The best way to determine if a mango is ripe, is by the way it feels. The more ripe it is, the softer it is. Select one that is firm but soft to the touch.
Now that you selected a beautiful mango and brought it home, it is time to cut it. Since I did not take photos when I cut the mango, I will refer you to this step by step photo tutorial about how to cut a mango by Our Best Bites blog.
You now have the mango cut up, it is time to dice the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and jalapeño. Let’s talk about the jalapeño. How spicy do you like your salsa? If you want a mild to medium spice level, then I recommend seeding the jalapeño before dicing it. However, if you are like some members of my family and like to walk on the extra spicy side of life, then leave the seeds in, and dice. It is up to you.
Once you have all the ingredients mixed together it is time to serve! Serve this Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo Salsa as a dip, like the photos above, or add it to a salad, like my Chicken Mango Salsa Salad with Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette.
With Cinco de Mayo coming up, the Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo salsa will be a perfect addition to your Mexican Fiesta celebration, whether served as a dip or on top of a salad or an entree such as grilled chicken or fish.
