Spicy Strawberry Mango Salsa Recipe


It's STRAWBERRY SEASON, friends! Plus, there have been mangoes on sale in the stores almost every week since Memorial Day. Between those two exciting events and the cilantro steadily producing on my back porch, this salsa was an obvious choice to bring to a party! I knew the dip would be delicious, if only I could get skeptical eaters to partake. Well, it didn't take much prodding before this salsa was gone! Everyone loved it--men loved the spicy jalapeno, women loved the sweet fruit. I don't know how the two flavors work together so well, but they do! 

Spicy Strawberry Mango Salsa Recipe
Makes 1 bowl of salsa

1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
5-6 large strawberries, washed and hulled and chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tsp chopped cilantro
Italian seasoning
1 Tbsp lime juice

In a 2-3 cup bowl, combine mango, strawberries, jalapeno, onion, and cilantro. Sprinkle with cumin, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add in lime juice. Stir to combine. Keep covered and refrigerate until serving. Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.

  1. Fruit salsa has been on my list of things to try. I love the idea of strawberry and jalapeno together.
