Mango salsa is the summer salad with a difference. You can use it whenever you cannot find avocado for guacamole. It is tasty and crunchy. Filled with sweet and sour punches. Great way to enjoy it even in taco shell if you get bored of avocado dip. Mango is very sweet fruit. However, some people find it very sweet.
This is a great way to relish the firm mangoes with crunchy cucumbers and juicy tomatoes. Slightly sour lemon juice adds to the balance of this delicate relish. This way you can minimize the sweetness of mangoes and make it more delicious. You can even add pineapples or avocado to it.

What do you eat salsa with?
You can add this to burgers and chips. Serve fresh mango salsa as chaat or on masala papad. Eat as salad.
If mangoes are not in season, make the same with peaches and pineapples. Winter salad tastes great with stone fruit or plums. If you can't find peaches, make an apple salsa.
I find it very refreshing. It is also great way to up your energy mid-day.
How long does mango salsa last in the fridge?
Since it contains onions, it should be finished within few hours.
