Pineapple Mango Salsa
Summer is almost here! I can’t believe it!! We just finished up the school year and we are so excited to get out and explore more during the summer. I’m also excited because we’re finally getting a grill, which means we’ll be making all sorts of delicious things outside instead of heating up the kitchen inside.
We love finding new summer recipes to make and enjoy, and they’re usually cool, light and fresh. We also tend to make a ton of recipes with fruits, like today’s recipe for pineapple mango salsa, which is perfect for hot summer days. There’s absolutely NO cooking or roasting involved. Simple chop everything up, add some lime juice and zest, a pinch or two of salt and it’s good to go!
It reminds me of a salsa I really loved back in college. There were two Mexican restaurants that were always competing against each other, and what really set the one apart was their sweet mango pineapple salsa. It was divine! Delicious on top of their sweet pulled pork, chicken or even with chips!
How to Make Mango Salsa
As with any recipe, you can customize it based on the ingredients you love most. Not all mango salsas have pineapple, but we decided to add it for even more sweetness. Here are some other common ingredients that are great additions to your mango salsa:
- red bell pepper
- green bell pepper
- lime juice
- lemon juice
One of the best things about mango salsa is the sweet and savory combo that it provides, so don’g be nervous to combine but the fruits and veggies to make your own custom mango salsa. 😉
The only thing about this salsa is that it needs to be eaten within an hour or so of making it. Otherwise the pineapple begins to brown. That definitely shouldn’t be a problem, because this salsa is absolutely delicious, and I’m sure it will be gone in no time!
