Mango Salsa


  • Frozen mango pieces - four cups
  • Three jalapenos
  • Slice of purple onion
  • English cucumber - about a third of one (we prefer this type of cucumber and they yield hardly any water)
  • Purple onion - about a quarter inch
  • Cherry tomatoes - a dozen (more or less to your liking)
  • Red chili power - one to two teaspoons - optional

Mango Salsa

Servings: 6 Bowls


  1. Slice the mango pieces in half before thawing - easier to slice. If you are concerned about the thawing yielding too much liquid thaw first, drain the liquid then slice the pieces in half.
  2. Jalapenos - cut off stem tops, de-seed/de-vein and dice. I use an apple corer to de-seed and de-vein.
  3. Purple onion - slice off about a quarter inch and chop
  4. English cucumber - cut off about a third and chop
  5. Cherry tomatoes - slice in half
  6. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add red chili powder. Mix. Cover and refrigerate until serving dinner.

Made salmon burgers the other night. Wanted to make a refreshing side because the temperature was in the mid 80's that day. Aha, mango salsa. Fresh or frozen? Couldn't find fresh on my shopping excursion so bought a pound bag of frozen mangoes. The thawed mango pieces did not create a lake of liquid. In fact, the minor amount of liquid enhanced the dish. The dish comes together easily and in a short period of time. The salsa was refreshing and the flavor of all the ingredients came through. I hope you enjoy the dish. Mangia.
