Ingredients for Mango Salsa Recipe with Peaches
Mango peach salsa is very easy to make and requires seven simple ingredients found in season at your local grocer. Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 small mango, finely diced
- 1 peach, finely diced
- 1/2 jalapeno, or one if you want it spicy
- 1/4 red onion, very finely diced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp. lime juice
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
The freshness of the peach and mango pair beautifully with the flavors of the red onion, jalapeno and tomato. Our family can’t get enough of this delicious combination of flavors!
How to Choose Mango and Peach for Salsa
When it comes to buying peaches, look for yellow peaches that are firm, but not over or under ripe. Under-ripe and bruised peaches will be hard to cut and you’ll end up with mushy salsa! Too firm, and your peach will be bitter, rather than sweet. Check out this Facts about Peaches post for more info.
Similar to peaches, squeeze the mango gently. A ripe mango will have a slight give. Mangoes will also become softer as they ripen, and ripe mangoes will have a fruity aroma at their stem ends. Generally, if you can smell the mango flavor when you sniff the end of the mango, it’ll be ripe. That and the firmness of the mango are great guidelines! Ripe mango recipes are packed with flavor and sweetness.
Jalapenos add the perfect amount of spicy flavor to salsas. Sweet peaches and mangoes are a perfect pair for this recipe, as it balances out the spice and acidity from the jalapeno and tomato. We recommend trying peaches and mangoes in most jalapeno recipes!
How to Dice a Tomato
Your tomatoes will need to be firm if you want to dice them easily. I generally use one small, ripe, firm roma tomato for this recipe, and dice it into small pieces. The smaller the pieces of tomato, the better! I’m a firm believer that food chopped into smaller pieces tastes way better than chunky food.
Remove the core of the tomato, and lay the tomato flat on a cutting board. Slice it in thin slices, then stack the slices and slice into strips. Rotate the strips and slice again. You will have the perfect tomato dice for salsa recipes!
