This simple mango salsa is perfect for fish or chicken. And perfect for Weight Watchers too!
We’ve been trying to eat more fish these days. It’s good for you and makes a great simple, quick easy healthy dinner. So, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to season or sauce our fish.
Salsas are a great option because they can perk up the plainest protein while providing a serving or two of those all-important fruits and/or vegetables.
Recently this simple mango salsa recipe caught my eye. I decided to give it a try. With its beautiful peach and green hues and bright tropical flavor, it was the perfect tasty topping for simple grilled fish.
And with just 5 ingredients, you can make it in minutes! It would be delicious with chicken too.

According to my calculations each serving of this salsa has one Weight Watchers Points Plus when you run it through recipe builder. But, since it contains only ZERO Points foods, I probably wouldn’t count it.
I try to reward myself for eating more fresh fruits and vegetables whenever I can. This works for the Simply Filling Technique too.
A simple zesty salsa that will jazz up your next dinner of chicken or fish.
- 1 mango, ripe but still a little firm, peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cup jarred green salsa
- 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.
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.)
