Mango Tips:

1. Ripe mangos should be firm but have a little ‘give’ when lightly pressed, like a ripe but firm avocado. Keep unripe mangos on the counter at room temperature. Mangos shouldn’t be refrigerated before they are ripe.
2. Mangos will continue to ripen at room temperature, becoming sweeter and softer over several days.
3.To speed up ripening process, place mangos in a paper bag  and roll the bag closed.
4.Once ripe, mangos should be moved to the refrigerator, which will slow down the ripening process. Whole, ripe mangos may be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator.
5. Mangos can be peeled, cubed and placed in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for up to six months.

  1. Great recipe. I make a mango salsa with habaneros and this can sometimes have TOO much of a kick for some folks.. I want to try this one, which looks SO good.. I can rarely find serrano chilis though, so will need to modify and find something locally. Looks delicious in that chicken dish too!! Thanks


  2. I’m SO excited mango is finally in season! This salsa is so fresh, colorful and pairs well with pretty much anything!


  3. I love all of these ingredients! We think one my kiddos has a sensitivity to nightshades, but he loves mangoes, so this is perfect for our tacos! Thanks for the recipe!


  4. I have never felt confident about buying mangos. Thank you so much for the tips on how to choose a perfect one. I can’t wait to try this mango salsa with our salmon this week!
