During summer, juicy and ripe Mangoes are always there in the refrigerator, hence, mango recipes can be quickly made. Be it a movie night or spending time with friends over some beer and snacks, Mango Salsa definitely makes its way to the dining table.
Most importantly, this salsa sauce recipe is also a good way to involve kids in the kitchen. Just chop the ingredients and let the kids mix and mash the salsa on their own. I paired this Mango Salsa with Za’atar Spiced Pita Chips this weekend and it was a hit with everyone.
The tangy and sweet flavours were a riot in the mouth and the mildly spiced pita chips made a perfect balance with the salsa. Though, I have not used red bell pepper or other bell pepper, if you want then please add it to Mango Salsa Recipe.
I love to serve this mango salsa over my fish tacos too. It makes a nice contrasting combination with the fish and takes the tacos to the next level.
