Nothing takes bland to bold more quickly than a fresh salsa. It can dress up anything from a humble plain tortilla chip, add a lot of flavor to a simple garden salad, or bring grilled foods to a new level. Best yet, salsas can pull this off while adding a few calories and little, if any, fat.

Easy Fresh Mango and Serrano Chile Salsa. Perfect side dish for grilled meats and fish or in a refreshing salad. It's also a nice alternative to tomato salsa with chips or tacos.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 1 Medium Fresh Mango
  • 1 - 2 Serrano Chile Peppers
  • 1 Small Red Onion
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper
  • Juice of 1 Lime (about 2 tablespoons or 30 ml)

  1. Dice the mango and red onion.
  2. Remove seeds and membranes from the peppers.
  3. Dice the red pepper (roughly the same size as the mango) and finely dice the Serrano chile pepper. It's a good idea to use gloves when slicing chile peppers as the heat from them can linger on your skin.

  5. Add the cilanto and lime juice.
  6. Mix gently and refrigerate about an hour in the refrigerator before serving.
