A mango pico de gallo recipe is a great way to serve fresh fruit in the winter and spring seasons. Its delicious taste makes it a great addition to any meal. And it is also easy to make and preserve so you can enjoy it for years to come!
Mango pico de gallo is a fresh and fruity twist on traditional Mexican pico de gallo. It is perfect for serving with tacos, tortilla chips, salads, and other dishes. Unlike most other salsas, mango pico de gallo is made with fresh ingredients and has no preservatives.
The key ingredients in this recipe include mango, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice. You can add additional vegetables for more flavor, such as cucumber or avocado. If you are a fan of spicy salsa, you can add chiles.
In addition to adding a sweet note, mangos add a light flavor to the salsa. If you want a more smoky or tangy flavor, you can use chile de arbol or chili flakes. Adding an onion also provides a milder flavor.
Choosing the right ingredients is an important step to a great salsa. You can use Roma tomatoes for the best flavor, but you can also use plum or white tomatoes. For a more tomato flavor, choose vine-ripe tomatoes.
For an extra punch of flavor, you can also add jalapenos. Green jalapenos have a milder heat, while red jalapenos can add a kick to your pico. Depending on the heat level you desire, you can leave the seeds on or cut the peppers into smaller pieces.
Mango pico de gallo is delicious and easy to make. It makes a tasty topping for tortilla chips, chicken, pork, or fish. You can also serve it as a dip with jicama or celery. Just be sure to keep the salsa in a sealed container in the refrigerator for at least 2 days.
This dish is great to make ahead. When served, the flavors will blend better. Ideally, you can prepare the mango pico de gallo the day before and refrigerate it. But you can also store it for up to four days in an airtight container.
Make sure to buy mangos that are in season. Florida mangoes are available from May until August. However, there are several other varieties of mangoes you can use for this recipe. Whether you choose a sweet or spicy variety, mangos are a wonderful addition to any meal.
If you’re looking for a delicious way to add flavor to your meals, consider preserving mango pico de gallo. Pico de gallo is a Mexican dish that’s perfect for dipping tortilla chips or serving with chicken or fish. The tangy taste of the salsa is balanced by the sweetness of the mango.
You can preserve mango pico de gallo in an airtight container in your fridge for a few days. It can also be frozen. However, the texture will change. After thawing, the tomatoes will be soft and mushy.
To make pico de gallo, start by chopping the ingredients. Peeling the mangoes can be tedious. Instead, use a small paring knife to cut the fruit. This cuts the work in half.
Then, combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Add some lime juice and cilantro. Sprinkle the contents with salt. Use kosher salt for a savoury note.
For more heat, you can add a jalapeno pepper. Jalapenos have seeds and veins that you should scrape out with a knife. Once you’ve done that, chop the pepper lengthwise.
You can also try adding a habanero pepper. If you leave the seeds in the pepper, you’ll get a hotter salsa. But be careful! The seeds can cause skin irritation.
You can use a food processor to quickly chop the ingredients. Or, you can chop the ingredients on a chopping board. Either way, it’s a quick way to create a delicious side dish.
Mango pico de gallo can be eaten immediately, or stored in the refrigerator for up to four days. When it’s time to eat it, pinch the contents between your thumb and forefingers.
Aside from being delicious, mango pico is healthy and refreshing. You can enjoy it with dips or tortilla chips, and it’s especially good for salads.
When making pico de gallo, you’ll want to make it when the tomatoes and mangoes are in season. However, you can make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Ideally, it should be eaten within a few days.
If you are using canned mangoes, be sure to rinse them thoroughly before adding them to the salsa. Otherwise, they will be hard to cut into neat cubes.

Cut the red onion into pieces and the cilantro into fine pieces. Add the mangos and other ingredients to a bowl. Mix them together and season with salt and pepper. Serve the mixture with a squeeze of lime or lime wedge.

Serving with our Tropical Rose Sangria
When serving mango pico de gallo with our Tropical Rose Sangria, you’re making a summery drink that’s perfect for a warm evening. It’s easy to make and a delicious treat for any occasion. You can use fresh fruit to create the perfect balance of sweetness and tang. Serve the chilled wine with tortilla chips or tacos, or pair it with grilled fish or chicken.
When choosing the right type of mango to serve with your Tropical Rose Sangria, choose ones that are as ripe as possible. This will allow the fruits to absorb the alcohol and give the drink more flavor.
A traditional sangria recipe uses a bottle of Spanish red wine, a half cup of fresh juice, and half a cup of Spanish brandy. If you prefer, you can replace the Spanish brandy with orange liqueur or Cointreau. For a little extra citrus, you can add a splash of orange curacao.
You can also substitute peaches, melon, or pineapple for the mango. Be sure to taste the finished sangria before serving to ensure the flavors are blending.
If you’re entertaining guests, consider making a frozen version of the sangria. The ingredients are the same as for the traditional recipe, but you can leave the bottle in the fridge for up to a week.
Frozen sangria works great with white wine or a tropical fruit blend. You’ll need one and a half cups of wine, a half cup of sugar, and a half cup of brandy. Add the ingredients to a pitcher. Mix well and then freeze for up to two hours. Remove from the freezer and let thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
To enhance the flavor of your frozen sangria, try adding different berries or combinations of berries. Fruits also absorb the alcohol, which gives the drink a slightly sweeter taste. Lastly, garnish your beverage with a strawberry or whole strawberry. Hang the garnish on the rim of glasses to add a beautiful visual element.
Whether you’re hosting a party or just a casual get together, this recipe is a perfect choice.
