Ingredients

Mango Pico De Gallo ingredients.

This dip tastes best when made using fresh ingredients. You will find all the ingredients in any grocery store near you.

Mangoes – Mexican Champagne Mangoes are perfect for this chunky salsa recipe. If not, use other Mexican varieties like Haden or Ataulfo mangoes, Florida mangoes, or Indian varieties like Alphanso or Kesar.

Buy fresh, ripe mangoes that smell fruity, give back a little when pressed, and are free of soft patches and black marks.

Tomatoes – To prepare this tasty dip, you can use ripe fresh tomatoes, like Roma tomatoes, plum tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc. You can also use bottled fire-roasted tomatoes to give this dish a smoky twist.

Lime Juice – Use only freshly squeezed lime juice. Fresh lime juice tastes refreshing. Its taste cannot be replicated with bottled juice. Lime juice can be replaced with lemon juice.

Jalapeno – Remove the seeds from the jalapeno peppers before adding them. Otherwise, it will make the salsa too spicy. You can replace spicy jalapenos with other chilies like serrano chiles or habanero peppers.

You will also need fresh cilantro, onions, and salt. I prefer using red onions, but you can use white onions or yellow onions, too.

You can chop avocados, green bell peppers, or pineapple and mix it with mango salsa.

How To Make Mango Salsa

Preparation

Wash the mangoes and wipe them dry using a kitchen towel. You will need approximately 1-2 large mangoes to get 1 and ½ cups of cubed mangoes.

Peel the mango using a sharp paring knife and slice the flesh away from the pit. Discard the pit. Cut the flesh into ½-inch cubes or small pieces.

Wash 2 medium-sized tomatoes (to get ½ cup diced tomatoes) and cut them in half. Discard the seeds. Cut into small cubes.

Peel a large red onion and dice it. You will need approximately ½ onion to get ¼ cup diced onion.

Chop the cilantro (2 tbsp) and Jalapeno (1 tbsp). Remove the seeds from the Jalapeno; otherwise, the salsa will become too hot. If you want extra spicy salsa, then leave the seeds.

Juice 1 lime (1 tablespoon juice).

Frequently Asked Questions

How to tell if the mango is ripe?

I have seen that a ripe mango is very aromatic. So, smell the stem end to check if the mango is ripe. Also, press it slightly, and it should give back a little. If it indicates soft flesh, the mango is ripe. If it is firm, let it sit over the counter for 2 to 3 days before you slice it.

How to cut a mango?

Wash the mango and wipe it completely dry using a kitchen towel. Using a knife, peel the mango, slice the flesh away from the pit, and discard the pit. Cut the flesh into small cubes.

You can also slice the mango with the skin and take out the flesh using a spoon. Now chop the flesh into small cubes and use them in the salsa.Steps of how to cut a mango.

Can I use frozen mangoes to make pico de gallo?

Yes, absolutely! When fresh mangoes are not in season, you can use frozen mangoes instead. Just thaw them for a few hours in the refrigerator and add them to the salsa with other ingredients.

Serving Suggestions

My favorite way of serving Pico de Gallo Con Mango is as an accompaniment with nachos, corn chips, tortilla chips, or crackers. Serve it chilled or at room temperature.

This refreshing appetizer can be used as a flavorful topping for fish tacos, grilled chicken, burrito bowls, or taco salad.

You can also serve this delicious salsa with South Indian pappadums to try a fusion.

Storage Suggestions

This mango salsa will last in the fridge for 2 to 3 days when stored in an airtight container.

I always like to make it fresh, though, as I think it tastes the best when consumed immediately.
