About this flavorful salsa

Pico de Gallo is a Mexican salsa delicacy that means “roasters peak.” It gets the name because people originally used to eat it with fingers using the forefinger and the thumb.

Traditionally, pico de gallo is made only with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. However, this easy salsa can be also prepared with other tropical fruits and vegetables.

So, our recipe includes sweet mangos diced and mixed together with the traditional ingredients. The result is an amazing chunky salsa with lots of flavors and textures. From tangy to sour and sweet, to mildly spicy, I assure you, it won’t disappoint!

Let’s start with the ingredients needed to make this flavorful salsa.

Ingredients for pico de gallo with mango

  • Mango: Because this salsa is all about mangos, you will need fresh, ripe, and premium quality mangos. Mangos are delicious and are known for their many benefits. They have a natural sweetness that sets the tone for this salsa. This tropical fruit is the king of all fruits and is undoubtedly delicious.

  • Tomatoes: Juicy, red tomatoes are the next best thing in this recipe apart from the mangos. You can choose any type of plum tomatoes you prefer. However, make sure they are ripe, juicy, fresh, and not too soft. They should be firm to touch.
  • Red onion: Red onions add a crunch to the salsa. You can choose white or yellow onions as well, but I love red onions because they have a mild flavor and are slightly sweet. In short, the flavor goes so well with the mangoes and tomatoes.
  • Green chilies: Green chilies bring in heat and help in balancing the sweetness in the salsa. You can also use jalapeño peppers instead of green chilies. Whatever you can get easily!
  • Cilantro: Cilantro is an herb that adds freshness to the salsa. Furthermore, it has a delicate and slightly complex flavor that goes well with the rest.
  • Lime: Juice from fresh limes adds acidity to the salsa. This ingredient is crucial as it helps to cut through the sweetness. It plays an important role in balancing the flavors. 
  • Salt: A dash of salt is compulsory for every dish. You can use table salt, pink Himalayan salt, or sea salt. Whatever works best for you.

    I also made your pineapple pico de gallo and now this mango version. Neither of them disappointed me! The spicy, tarty and somehow sweet and sour flavour was beyond delicious!
