This spicy Jamaican-style mango salsa recipe is a beautiful blend of sweet and spicy, and so easy! I love making a batch to pair with grilled fish or chicken. But, if you want to make it to go with jerked anything, omit the pepper in the salsa and use it as a great way to cool down the jerk spices.

Ripe mangoes are best for this recipe, but believe it or not if they’re still a little green they still make a great salsa…on the sweet and sour side. It takes no time to make this side dish so you can enjoy my Jamaican-style mango salsa even with a quick weeknight dinner. That’s because it’s also delicious as a topping for any kind of burger!


6 ripe Mangoes, diced
1 1/2 cups chopped Red Onion
3/4 cup chopped fresh Cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 tsp  Salt (to taste)
2 to 3 limes, juiced (to taste)
1 to 2 tsp Hot Pepper Sauce (optional)


1. Place diced mangoes, chopped red onion and chopped cilantro in a large bowl and mix togther
2. Stir in salt,  fresh lime juice and hot sauce. Taste and adjust these ingredients to your preference

Serves 10

Growing up my mother taught me and my sisters how to cook and bake, but the Jamaican dishes were always her territory. So now, years later, Iike you I'm learning how to cook like a Jamaican! From time to time I also share my own recipes that feature modern twists on traditional Jamaican dishes and ingredients.
