Mango kiwi salsa is a great Summer salsa to top on fish or chicken. It is also great served with tortilla chips for dipping. I've even mixed this salsa in with some mashed up avocado for fruity guacamole.
In the Summertime, I enjoy all kinds of salsas and fresh fruit. Especially tropical type fruits on top of grilled fish or chicken. If you like salsa recipes like I do, check out my recipes for Blender Salsa, Zero Point Salsa with Black Beans and Corn, and Fish Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa. These recipes are low in point and keep you on track. I even have a recipe for air fryer tortilla chips that will be great for dipping this salsa in.
Usually, when people think of salsa they think of a tomato-based salsa. Not this! This combo of kiwi and mango is a unique combo of tropical fruits.
How to make Mango and Kiwi Salsa
Making mango salsa requires a lot of chopping and dicing. Chop and prep all your vegetables and fruit. Add them to a bowl, and toss all the ingredients together. If you don't like chunky salsa you can definitely add this to a blender.
What are the main ingredients for salsa?
The six main ingredients for any type of salsa are: onions, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno (for spice), salt, and pepper. If you have those 6 ingredients on hand and any type of fruit or tomatoes you can make a unique salsa and play around with the fruit used.
Some people do not care for cilantro at all and when you have a picky eater in your midst, sub out some parsley. If you like spicier salsas play around with the different kinds of chilis out there.
Tips for Mango & Kiwi Salsa
How do I know if my mango is ripe? Mangos are very hard to find fresh in this town and sometimes you just have to buy them unripe like avocados and wait for them to soften on the countertop. To tell if a mango is fresh, I just usually press down on it and if it is soft it ripe. If your mango is hard when you press on it then it is not ripe.
Can I use frozen mangos for this salsa? I've been thinking about using frozen mangos, but haven't come to try that yet. Frozen mangos would get kind of mushy and make the salsa go bad really fast.
There are also canned mangos and those would work way better than frozen mango.
How long does this salsa last in the fridge? No longer than a week. Store it in an air tight container in the fridge to make it last.Print
