Mango Cucumber Salsa

I remember the first time I tried mango cucumber salsa. It was on top of a thick piece of grilled salmon and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love the flavor. It was definitely love at first bite.

You can totally make mango salsa with just about any ingredients. You can toss it up savory style with red peppers and jalapenos or a sweet salsa with strawberries and kiwi. Either way you like it, a mango salsa recipe is a much needed recipe to have on file.

Here’s one of mine!

Dice a mango up… if you need some help on how to do it you can see instructions here!

Mango Cucumber Salsa l SimplyScratch.com
Dice up about a 1/4 cup of cucumber. I like to use English cucumbers, you know the ones that are long and skinny and usually shrink-wrapped in plastic? I scoop out and discard the seeds so the salsa doesn’t get all watery. Use about a third of a cucumber that which should equal about a 1/2 cup (give or take).

You’ll need a whole lime and…

    I love mango salsa. I've never made it myself, Hubby doesn't like mangos so I'd have to eat it all by myself. Hmmm… that doesn't seem like such a bad thing. Thanks for sharing, this looks delicious.

    Just adore mango salsa, especially with grilled fish. Might just take the onions out, but otherwise looks fantastic!

    First of all I'm loving the font with the photos. This makes me want to whip up a batch of my black bean mango salsa. I have a friend who constantly calls for the recipe whenever she has a get together but fails to write down the recipe. I will need to pass this along to her next time and see how she likes it. This looks incredible. Yummy!

    I need to get some mangos and do something with them. Everyone is posting such great mango recipes, and I have never cooked or eaten one in my house!

    This is incredible! I had it with the soy-ginger-lime turkey quesedillas and as a topping on the Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork. Perfect for both!
