A fresh, homemade salsa with mango, lime, cilantro and chili is quite refreshing and goes perfectly next to a piecemango_salsa of meat or fish (especially nice next to salmon). Food right off the grill works nice as the flavors of the salsa compliments the smokiness from the grill. This makes a small batch that can easily be doubled.


  • 1 mango (or papaya), diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 small green chili, minced
  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced
  • The juice of one lime
  • Fresh Cilantro (Coriander), chopped
  • salt


Mix all the ingredients together and taste with some salt. Depending on how sweet the mango is, you might need to add some additional sugar. If you like very spice salsa, then you can add some additional chili.

Preferably refrigerate for a couple of hours to let flavors come together.

Note: Additional ingredients that would work nice in this salsa include

  • Fresh tomatoes, diced
  • Peppers, diced
  • Apples, diced
  • Thai fish sauce
  • Pineapple
