We’ve been trying to eat more salmon these days since all of its healthy omega 3 fats are so good for us and it makes a great simple, quick easy healthy dinner.
To prevent boredom from sneaking in I’m always on the lookout for new ways to season or sauce our salmon.
Recently this quick and easy mango salsa recipe caught my eye so I decided to give it a try.
It was the perfect tasty topping for grilled salmon, with its beautiful peach and green hues.
I think it would be great on grilled chicken and any grilled or roasted white fish like halibut or tilapia too.
Fish tacos, anyone?
Simple easy healthy salsa recipes like this are a great way to jazz up plain grilled fish or chicken.
And I love that it’s such a healthy tasty way to sneak an extra serving of fruits and vegetables into our meals.
This easy mango salsa can be stirred together right before dinner or made a few hours ahead and stored in the fridge.
It will last a day or two in the fridge but really tastes best the day it is made.
Mango Salsa Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: None
Yield: Makes about 2 cups
You want a ripe mango for this mango salsa. A ripe mango should give a little when you press it.
The trickiest part of this simple salsa recipe is peeling and chopping the mango. Cut the mango in two halves, along it’s pit. Score the flesh of each half into cubes. Flip inside out and cut the cubes from the peel into a bowl. (I find this method easier than trying to peel the skin from the fruit.)
1 mango, ripe but still a little firm, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup salsa verde
1/3 cup chopped cilantro or parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
Squeeze of fresh lime juice (optional)
Stir the ingredients together in a bowl and serve or refrigerate for several hours.
