The 7 ingredients needed to make Mango Salsa are:
For this mango recipe, you can use any of your favorite types of good ripe and juicy mangoes. Just do not use the fibrous ones; the fibers in salsa don’t taste very good.
I added red onions because they are not so spicy, they add a nice crunch, and they also add a nice contrast to the main bright yellow color of the salsa. However, you can also use yellow onions here.
Red bell pepper:
A gorgeous red colored bell pepper adds a beautiful color, texture, and flavor to this salsa. Also, its addition makes this salsa rich in antioxidants. I added chopped red bell peppers here, but you can also use orange, yellow, or even green. Any of your favorite bell peppers would work just fine here. A combination of different colored bell peppers can also be used here.
Fresh herby punch from fresh ‘cilantro’ adds a spectacular taste to this mango salsa. If you are not a fan of cilantro, then you can replace cilantro with basil leaves.
They add a mildly hot flavor and color to the salsa. Feel free to use any other chili peppers of your choice.
Freshly squeezed lemon juice adds a nice zesty tang to the sweet salsa. You can swap lime with lemon juice. But just don’t use the bottled juice, it doesn’t taste so good here.
Some salt balances the flavors of this sweet and sour salsa and also brings out all the scrumptious flavors. You can also add some pepper to this salsa.
