Mango Salsa



  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño chile, minced (include ribs and seeds for a hotter taste, if desired)
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: diced red bell pepper and jicama


Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Season them to taste with salt and pepper. If the salsa ends up being a little too hot or acidic for your taste, tone it down by adding some diced avocado.

  • Nutrition Tip

    Mangoes offer a great combination of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. They contain vitamin C, vitamin A (beta carotene), vitamin E, potassium, selenium, and fiber.

    They are also one of few fruits that are high in iron and are regularly recommended to people who may be at risk for iron deficiency. Because mangoes are higher in fiber, they can help regulate digestion and appetite.

    When choosing a mango, keep in mind that the greener they are, the more vitamin C they have, the riper they are, and the more beta carotene they contain. Mangoes are great to add to salsas and smoothies. They are also wonderful to eat just as a snack.
