Mango Salsa – Simply Healthy

January 29, 2014 January 29, 2014/ Morgan

Looking to add a dash of AWESOME to your salads? Or a new salsa to the table? Maybe just need something to top your sweet potatoes with? Mango salsa is the cure for all of these things and more! I loooveee mangoes! They are so wonderful in sweet dishes (like my Mango Lassi Overnight Oats) but they also pair well with savory foods which makes them a big player in my kitchen.

This recipe is from my Vegan Taco Party booklet (you can buy it here!!) – AND I’m holding a giveaway for it right now! I have a first printing copy of Vegan Taco Party (by me of course!) and 1 PDF version as well to GIVEAWAY (so you have 2 chances to win!) What do you have to do? Just comment on any recipes that you have made on (a comment that helps others decide that they want to try it as well!) When you comment please include your email address in the box that designates it for commenting. I am the only person that will be able to see your email address. I will not be sending out spam or selling your email address to anyone! (Trust me, I love you guys!!!) I will ship the booklet anywhere so anyone can enter (unless you are on another planet because I cannot afford rocket fuel!)

I do this with fresh mango but you could also use frozen thawed if you cannot find fresh anywhere. I show you how to cut up a fresh mango in this video but I also came across this mango cutter which looks REALLY NEAT if you struggle with cutting mangoes. I just don’t know what else I could do with it. All you really need is a good (maybe colorful?!) knife and you’re good to go!

The Vegan Taco Party cookbooklet also happens to be a COLORING BOOK! My daughter colored in this one for me. So cute and fun. I love that I keep to keep her coloring in my personal copy of this book. 

  • 2 mangoes
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, minced (remove the seeds if desired!)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced 
  • juice of 1/2-1 lime (depending on how juicy they are!)

Chop all of your mango pieces into 1/4″-1/2″ dice. Mix everything together with your chopped mangoes. The salsa tastes best if you give it time to rest so the flavors can meld together (an hour or so!)
