Mangoes: Fresh mangoes are best but frozen work well too. Be sure that your fresh mango is very ripe and juicy. If you’re using frozen, allow them to thaw in the refrigerator first. 

Tomatoes: Fresh, juicy Roma tomatoes are the base of a traditional pico de gallo. They compliment the mango well and add a yummy fresh flavor to this version of the salsa.

Peppers: We will add jalapeños and bell peppers to this salsa. They each add a unique flavor. While the jalapeño adds a spicy kick, the bell pepper is sweeter.

Onion: A fresh red onion ties it all together.

Cilantro: This bitter, earthy herb perfectly balances the other flavors in this salsa. If you are not a fan, feel free to leave it out.

Garlic: Just a bit of fresh garlic makes this salsa all the more flavorful.

Lime Juice: Use fresh lime juice whenever possible. Bottled just doesn’t taste as good!

  • Large bowl
  • Juicer (optional)

That’s it! This salsa really couldn’t be easier. 


  • Use fresh lemon juice instead of lime juice.
  • Substitute cherry tomatoes for the Roma tomatoes for a sweeter option.
  • Use white onion instead of red. 

How to Make Mango Pico De Gallo

Once your veggies are washed, remove the seeds and webbing from the peppers. Remove the seeds from the tomatoes and the peel of the mango (if using fresh mango).

Chop the mango, tomato, peppers, onion, and cilantro into small pieces. I aim for ¼ inch cubes or smaller.

Toss all of the ingredients in a large bowl. You can serve it immediately or allow it to develop more flavor in the refrigerator before enjoying your fresh salsa.

How to Store Mango Pico de Gallo

This mango pico de gallo will save well in the fridge for 3-4 days. In fact, I think it tastes better the next day! Keep the salsa in an airtight container and you’ll find that the flavors are able to marinate in the fridge. With all of the fresh veggies, however, it doesn’t save for very long. This shouldn’t be a problem though; it never lasts more than a couple of days in my house!

Serving Suggestions

This easy mango pico de gallo is the perfect salsa to have for meals! It is a fantastic side and a flavorful topping on a variety of dishes. Here are my favorite ways to use it:

  • Serve it with a big bowl of tortilla chips for dipping. Don’t forget the guacamole too! 
  • Add a generous scoop to burrito bowls for loads of flavor.
  • Use it as a topping on fish tacos, shrimp tacos, or breaded cauliflower tacos (my favorite vegetarian option!).
