Mango season is upon us and this delicious, nutrition-packed fruit is not just for smoothies.  Consider making this mango salsa and using it for everything from a simple dip to a garnish for fish or chicken.  It is sweet, tangy, and a little spicy–a delicious accompanyment for many dishes.


1/2 cup finely-chopped red onion
2 mangoes peeled and diced small
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice, or to taste
1/2 cup finely-minced fresh cilantro leaves
1 jalapeno pepper, de-seeded and chopped
1/2 orange bell pepper, de-seeded and chopped
1-2 Tbsp. rice vinegar, or to taste
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar


1.  In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and toss to coat in the lime juice, vinegar, sugar and salt.
2.  Transfer to a resealable container and refrigerate.  Let sit overnight for the flavors to blend.  You may want to drain some of the excess juice before serving.

Serving ideas:

  • Dip for Pita chips
  • Accompaniment for Veggie Quesadillas
  • A chutney for grilled sea bass or tilapia filets
