What is better than a perfect bowl of fresh, ripe mango salsa? Nothing, you say? You would be THE MOST correct. It’s fruity, it’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s got some spice from the jalapeno, bite from the red onion, and freshness from the cilantro.
Throw it on top of grilled chicken, fish, pork, grass clippings…wait, probably not…but maybe?
This mango salsa takes like two seconds to make because we use a little time saving hack thanks to Aldi (not sponsored, just love their inexpensive produce). Aldi sells pre-peeled and de-seeded mango. If you’ve ever chopped a mango before, you know that the peeling/slicing around the single giant seed/core in the middle takes some time. And the amount of mango you get once you’ve ditched the peel and seed isn’t a ton.
But at Aldi they sell a big ol’ box of prepped mango, and all you have to do is dice it up. It’s the ACTUAL best, because I fooooor sure don’t have time to prep a bunch of mangoes for salsa – we’re in the business of easy, low maintenance dinners over here!
Because of that wonderful little time saver, this mango salsa takes pretty DANG little effort. Dice up all your fresh, yummy ingredients, add some lime juice, and you all done, fam. Here’s what we’ve got:
- Red onion
- Lime juice
That’s it! It adds SO much to things that would normally be so plain and blah (hello, chicken breast 👋. Sorry for throwing you under the bus there…but you can be really boring).
You need this in your life this spring and summer, friends! And hit up your Aldi so you can save yourself a solid fifteen minutes of prep!…
