About The Recipe

Pico de Gallo is a Mexican salsa made with fresh produce and served as an appetizer with corn tortilla chips or as a side dish for other preparations.

The name translates to English as “roaster’s peak” 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 and be named accordingly.

For example, if you add pineapple, it will be pico de gallo con piña, or like in this recipe, using mango will take the name of pico de gallo con mango.

So, our recipe includes sweet mangos cubes mixed together with the traditional ingredients. The result is a fresh mango salsa with lots of flavors and textures.

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

Ingredients for pico de gallo con mango

  • Mango: 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 and red tomatoes are the next best thing in this recipe apart from the mangos. You can choose any plum tomatoes you prefer. However, make sure they are nicely 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: Those bring in heat and help balance the sweetness in the salsa. You can also use jalapeños, serranos, thai chilies, etc. Whatever you can get easily!
  • Cilantro: This is an herb that adds freshness to this salsa. Furthermore, it has a slightly complex flavor that goes well with the rest.
  • Lime: Juice from fresh limes adds acidity to the recipe. 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.

How To Make Mango Pico de Gallo

Wash tomatoes and dice them (you can also remove the core and seeds if you want), then peel the onion and dice it too. Place everything in a bowl.

Wash and peel mangos, then dice them. Ripe mangoes add more juice and sweetness to the salsa. While firm mangos add more tanginess and texture.

What To Eat With

Useful notes

  • Spicy. Adjust spiciness by adding more or fewer chilies, if you use jalapeno peppers you can even cut them longwise and discard veins and seeds for a milder flavor.
  • Variations. Add chili flakes or chile de arbol for a smoky and spicier touch.
  • Subs. Replace green chilies with fresh habanero or use cherry tomatoes for a sweeter taste.

Storage Suggestions

You can make mango pico de gallo one day ahead. Just chop and dice all ingredients and leave them in separated containers stored in the refrigerator. Then the day you intend to eat it, just combine and season everything with salt and lime juice.

Once prepared, this fresh salsa can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. I don’t recommend freezing it.

    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!

    Loved this version of pico de gallo! The mango indeed add a nice touch and now that they are on season is a good idea to make this recipe because is cheaper. I used the salsa as an appetizer and everyone loved it, I also swapped the fresh chilies with canned pickled jalapeno peppers as they are easier to find where I live.

    I found this recipe the other night and went to the grocery store for the ingredients. I decided to substitute the peppers for 3 habanero grown in our garden 😋. This recipe was SPICY and complex to our families enjoyment! Thanks for the recipe!!

    1. Oh yes, habaneros are pure evil! but also they pairs nicely with mango pico de gallo :O
      I rarely use them because they’re too spicy for me. You can tone down the spiciness by removing seeds and membranes, then soak them a little bit in cold water with a splash of vinegar. That’s what I do when a recipe calls for habaneros :)
