Spicy Mango Salsa (No Tomatoes)

Sometimes a salsa recipe can be boring. I like to sweet up my salsa with the addition of fruit. This spicy mango salsa recipe features just four ingredients. This is a great recipe if you have an issue with nightshade vegetables like tomatoes or are just looking for a new variation on an old favorite.

This spicy mango salsa recipe is super simple and contains only four ingredients. As the name implies it does have mango as the base. This fruit pairs wonderly with cilantro and red onion for a touch of spice not too hot for you to handle.

Ingredients In This Recipe

The recipe ingredients include the following:

  • Mango
  • Red onion
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime juice

If you’re looking to add some fire you can add chopped jalapeno pepper. However, I withheld it in this recipe since my husband has an aversion to certain peppers. The other great thing about this recipe is if you are on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet this will be compliant with your food sensitivity needs.

How to Make Spicy Mango Salsa

The prep of this recipe will take the most time. Sometimes cutting a mango can be a pain. I have found the best way to get the most mango is by first peeling the skin off. Then you want to cut as close to the pit as possible. Then slice off the fruit from each side until you have nothing but the pit left.

Once you have some mango chunks dice them into small pieces. If you have no patience for cutting a mango you can try using a mango slicer and pitter gadget.

Next, you want to chop your onion and cilantro. If you hate chopping you can put the peeled onion in the food processor. Just be sure to chop it into small pieces so it doesn’t get stuck. The cilantro can be diced in there as well. Just be sure not to puree it.

Take the lime and slice it in half then use a hand juicer to get the lime juice.

Putting All the Ingredients Together

In a medium mixing bowl add the mango, red onion, cilantro, lime and mix until well covered. You can serve it right then or if you want to let the juices marinate put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes or over night if you’re not gonna eat it until later.
