How to Make Fresh Mango Salsa?
This salsa is a simple recipe with minimal ingredients and with fat-free lemon dressing. This is a no-oil mango salad. The simple ingredients are fresh mangoes, some peppers, jalapeno or green chili (for spicy), onions, and cilantro leaves. That's all. To conclude, no fancy ingredients for my mango salsa. However, if you want, you can add some crunchy bites of cucumber also to this. Bell peppers add crunch to the salsa.
Fresh Mango -
Mango is the main ingredient of mango salsa. So obvious. This is the hero ingredient. I prefer this salsa with fresh mangoes only. I love Alphonso mangoes for any of my mango recipes. These mangoes are pulpy, juicy, and sweet.
Bell Peppers -
I have added green & red bell peppers. These peppers add crunchy bite to the salad. These are again optional and adds variations to the mango salsa. If you don't have these, then also you can make your mango salsa tasty. But adding peppers to the salsa gives a crunch and complements the soft juicy mangoes.
Jalapeno brings in that heat to the sweet and savory mango salsa.
There can be no easier recipe than this. I won't call whatever I've posted here is a recipe. This is simply an idea. Prep and mix all ingredients. Season with salt to taste.
