Recipe Tips and Notes


  • Use ripe mangos to get the full juicy, sweet freshness of the fruit.
  • Mangos have a big oval-shaped seed in the middle which is inedible. Our preferred method for cutting a mango is first peeling it and then cutting the mango into four large pieces around the seed. You can then slice and dice these pieces of mango easily on a cutting board.

Frequently Asked Questions


What’s the difference between mango salsa and mango chutney?

Salsa is made from raw fruits and/or vegetables. Chutney is also usually made from fruits and/or vegetables but it is typically blended and cooked.

How do I store leftover salsa?

Mango salsa leftover can be refrigerated in an air-tight container for 3 days. Note: the mangos will soften over time changing the texture of the salsa.
