💭 FAQ and Top Tips
How do I prepare the mango?
Mangos have a large pit in the center. I like to slice 4 sides off an unpeeled mango, working around the pit. Using a knife, I cut a crosshatch pattern into the fruit of each slice. The little cubes of mango are then easily scraped off with a spoon.
Can I store this salsa?
Yes! This salsa can be served fresh straight away or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Can I replace or omit the jalapeño?
Yes, you can. While the jalapeño adds a bit of spice, this salsa is not overwhelmingly spicy, thanks to the natural sweetness of the mangos. If you are still apprehensive, you can omit it or use an entire bell pepper in the recipe rather than half of one.
