Let’s talk about the ingredients you need to make this easy pineapple mango salsa recipe!

Fresh Mango – I find fresh mango to be a PAIN to cut, however it is the best option for this fresh salsa. Frozen mango, even if thawed and drained, will be incredibly soft and mushy.

Fresh Pineapple – you can cut up part of a whole pineapple or further chop up prepared and trimmed pre-cut fruit. Fresh, ripe pineapple tastes much better than canned for a

Jalapeño Pepper – if you are not a fan of any heat or want to lean into the sweet side, you can swap this for some red bell pepper. Bell pepper will give a savory note without the spice. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno peppers to get a mild heat.

Red Onion

Fresh Cilantro – not a cilantro fan? Fresh mint is a great swap!

Fresh Lime Juice – fresh is best!

Making the Salsa

You can cut everything you need for pineapple mango jalapeno salsa on the same cutting board.

Use a sharp knife to cut the fruit as it will be easier to get clean cuts on smaller pieces. Add everything into a medium or large bowl depending on batch size.

Dice the fresh fruit into small pieces to make sure you can get a little bit of everything in one bite! You want to make it a chunky salsa but not cut the pieces so large that you can’t taste it all at once.

Chill the fresh pineapple mango salsa in an airtight container until ready to serve. Ideally at least 30 minutes. I like to chill several hours to make sure it is very cold and the flavors are blending. It can also be served at room temperature.

To make a spicier salsa, you can leave the ribs and seeds in, use more jalapeno, and/or use a spicier hot peppers like serrano.

FAQs

What do you eat with mango salsa?

This fruit salsa can be eaten with many different foods like a traditional salsa. Options include on fish tacos, shrimp tacos, salad, seafood entrees, and even with chips out of a bowl. Anything that you would use salsa for will work here, such as nachos, burritos, and more.

Does pineapple pair well with mango?

Yes! Pineapple pairs well with mango because they are both tropical fruits that balance each other between a tart pineapple and sweet mango.
