Mama’s Kitchen: Mango Pineapple Salsa

mango pineapple salsa
Between the grill going and the fresh fruits and vegetables in season, there’s something about the summer that makes Mexican food the perfect food to make. While I love mainstays like pico de gallo, tomatillo salsa and guacamole, I also like to play around with my salsa. A while back I made a mango & black bean salsa. Last night I had a lot of fresh fruit in the fridge and since I was making fish tacos for dinner, I thought a tropical fruit salsa would be the perfect refreshing accompaniment to grilled Mahi Mahi. The beauty of this recipe is that you can really add whatever you want – this is just what I happened to have in the fridge but feel free to add – I think next time I’m going to add some Jicama. But the best part? This fruit salsa works equally well with chips, fish or chicken tacos and vanilla ice cream – you can’t say that about many things!


Peeled & diced mango
Peeled & diced pineapple
Peeled & diced peach
Diced strawberry
Diced red bell pepper
Peeled & diced white onion
Chopped mint
Chopped cilantro
Juice of 1/2 lemon and 1/2lime

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir. That’s it!

Buon Appetito!

    I like the versatility of this dish and how you can just pair it with anything, really. I’m sure it’s great on fish, but I may have to try this on vanilla ice cream to see how the onions in the salsa play out!

    Thanks Michelle and May!

    May – ha! the onions – I didn’t put that much in but maybe skip them if you want to use it on ice cream?
