Cucumber Mango Salsa

I LOVE mango salsa. I was apprehensive about it at first but It’s so light and full of flavor! Since I’ve first tried it, I love using it on about anything: burritos, nachos, tacos, sandwich wraps, burgers – ย it’s even delicious just eating it by the spoonful!Cucumber Mango Salsa #Spicy #Mango #Salsa

Who knew fruit other than a tomato goes great in salsa? The first time I even heard of mango salsa, my reaction was, “ummm, what? “. After trying it I was surprised that something like mango would go so well as a salsa. So I’ve concocted my own, and to liven things up a bit, I added some jalapeno and cucumber to it that really gives it a good bite and a mild spice that you’ll love!

This is such a quick and easy thing to make any night. Just chop everything up, mix it altogether and serve! I love having this or my pico de gallo handy during the week because it makes a quick dinner a little more special? Don’t have time to do anything for dinner? Cook up some quesadillas, with a side of beans and top it with some mango salsa!

And look at all the colors! Plenty of vitamins and nutrients to counteract that greasy quesadilla right?! I mean I’m no nutritionist, but I’m pretty sure that’s how it works. OK, maybe that’s not how it works, but I can always dream right?!

Prep

Cutting a Mango

I think the first time I tried cutting a mango I got pretty frustrated, thinking I could just cut it down the center without any problem. The fact is there is a hard center that you won’t be able to cut through. You’l want to cut the mango close to the center and along this hard “pit”. You can do this across 2 sides, and then get smaller spears if you want to get the full use out of 1 mango.

    Mango salsa is one of my favorites, particularly on top of grilled fish or with shrimp tacos. The colors in your salsa are beautiful!

  2. Andi G. says:

    This is a beautiful salsa. I love mango salsa but don’t think I’ve had it combined with tomato. Sounds like a delicious combo!

  3. Sarah Caron says:

    What a lovely salsa. I love mango salsa — especially when it’s on the spicier side since the contrast of sweet and spicy is a favorite. I bet this would be great on grilled chicken.

  4. We love mango too…I started making mango salsa this summer too and now we can’t stop eating it. I pretty much always have mangoes in the house! I’m excited to have another salsa recipe to try!

  5. I love mango salsa too and could eat it straight from the bowl. The colors in your salsa are beautiful!
