How to Serve Mango Salsa

Mango salsa has so many possibilities and will bring a fresh flavor to whatever you add it to. These are some of my go-to ways to serve mango salsa.

  • With chips or pita
  • On top of baked or grilled fish or chicken
  • As a condiment on tacos

1. Level of Heat: If you prefer a spicier salsa then leave some of the seeds in the jalapenos or chose a spicier pepper such as serrano peppers.
