Strawberry Mango Salsa

by jenna on April 12, 2013

It’s been HOT here this week.

Like, my house has been almost Florida-hot. That’s hot. Now don’t get me wrong — I’m certainly not complaining. Not after the stretch of cold rain and fog last weekend, but this weather has made turning on my stove pretty darn difficult. I’m turning to things like cold cereal, gazpacho and salsa for sustenance.

Have you tried this gazpacho recipe yet? I know it’s a little early to go there but….I just went there. You should, too.

I had some strawberries and mangoes leftover in my fridge from an earlier farmer’s market run, so I decided to turn them into salsa instead of a cereal topping.

I love making fruity salsa with whatever is in my fridge! I mean, you can really use anything you want — just add some red onion, cilantro and jalapeno to the mix. Now a word to the wise: I made this salsa SUPER SPICY because I left in all the jalapeno seeds. What can I say? I like food so spicy it makes me cry. I never said I was normal.

To balance out the heat, I added some honey and then it was all good. If you’re sane, you’ll probably want to leave out the jalapeno seeds, though. Unless you need a good cry and if that’s the case, I totally understand. Make a margarita, too, while you’re at it.

Recipe is over at PBS Food! Enjoy, y’all!

What an interesting twist! The strawberry mango salsa looks delish. I just want to grab the tortilla chips in your photo and dig in.

I don’t know how you handle really spicy!! Doesn’t it burn your mouth or stay with you the rest of the night?


Averie @ Averie Cooks April 12, 2013 at 3:46 am

I am down with super spicy too. I make and can my own hot pepper jelly and some batches are so hot that I wonder what I was thinking…but it’s a hurts-so-good feeling. Lol and then…I want more! This salsa looks awesome!


Kristen @ notsodomesticated April 12, 2013 at 4:17 am

I think I’d have to take your advice and leave out the seeds. 😉 But other than that, it sounds delicious!!


Dana April 12, 2013 at 4:21 am

I love a good fruity salsa and this looks divine! I love mangos with black beans, too.
It’s 7:21 am and I want to eat this!


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 12, 2013 at 4:32 am

Oh my gosh, this sounds awesome and so summery. So jealous of your hot weather – our entire city is completely iced over and I had to scrape off about half an inch of solid ice on my car this morning! Send some warm weather up this way (and salsa too!) 😉


Molly @ RDexposed April 12, 2013 at 4:54 am

I made your peach salsa last year-so good!


Deb @ Dietitian Debbie Dishes April 12, 2013 at 5:02 am

I haven’t delved into the world of fruity salsas yet – but I just might have to start with this recipe! I am so intrigued by the combo of spicy and sweet. This would be great to bring to a party!


Sam April 12, 2013 at 5:07 am

Yum! I just made a version of this with mango & avacado. I never thought about adding strawberries. Thanks for sharing :) definitely best when paired with a margarita!


Tieghan April 12, 2013 at 5:11 am

I LOVE this!! It makes me crave summer, but it is totally full on snowing right now!!! Still I want this, like for breakfast!


Joelle ( on a pink typewriter) April 12, 2013 at 5:13 am

Yum! Perfect spring time salsa.


Angela @ Happy Fit Mama April 12, 2013 at 5:24 am

I’m so ready for hot weather! We’re under a winter weather advisory today. Really? Where’s spring??


sara @ fitcupcaker April 12, 2013 at 5:39 am

Ive made a mango avoado salsa but never one with strawberry! Strawberries were on sale this week so I bought a few packs, Im sure I can make this recipe in a pinch :) It looks amazing! I love the taste of fresh cilantro in dishes!


Emily @ Life on Food April 12, 2013 at 5:49 am

This recipe screams summer. Love it!


Sarah @ Yogi in Action April 12, 2013 at 6:37 am

I love making fruit salsa’s- I usually only use mango, but I like the idea of having strawberries in there as well.

I’m also VERY jealous of your heat wave! We’re expecting snow this weekend, and I am more than ready for some spring like weather.


erin @hooleywithaz April 12, 2013 at 6:39 am

thank you for the spice warning! i can deal with many kinds of spice, but straight jalapeno is not one of them…


Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health April 12, 2013 at 6:59 am

I just made black bean tostadas with mango salsa recently! I’m in love with mango and strawberries and this looks SO good. Mmm, lime tortilla chips would be the perfect compliment!


Heather April 12, 2013 at 7:24 am

We have been straight DEVOURING strawberries in our household lately. I can’t wait for more summer produce!


addie | culicurious April 12, 2013 at 7:58 am

Looks delicious, Jenna! Love strawberry and mango together :)


Julia April 12, 2013 at 8:03 am

Yum!! I love super spicy food. I wish it was hot’s been freezing and rainy. Yuck!


Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl April 12, 2013 at 9:47 am

This looks amazing! The addition of avocado would probably be fantastic, too! :) And a margarita would definitely be a requirement to accompany this!


Lauren C April 12, 2013 at 10:09 am

Your photos of the salsa are gorgeous and just SCREAM summer!


Christa @ Edible Balance April 12, 2013 at 10:18 am

Mmmmm, spicyness is certainly a love/hate relationship sometimes 😉 I do love it, but the seeds may be a bit much for this girl. The salsa looks incredible… I really wish spring would show up here in Calgary, we’re expecting more snow in the next few days!


Suzanne de Cornelia April 12, 2013 at 12:33 pm

All my fave things and gorgeous besides. I’ll put that on low fat organic cottage cheese for dinner. Thanks!


dixya@food, pleasure, and health April 12, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Caroline L. April 12, 2013 at 1:43 pm

So summery! That’s the prettiest salsa ever – love this!


jan April 12, 2013 at 3:40 pm

I looooove fruity salsas so I’m definitely trying this one! I have loved all of the recipes I’ve tried from your blog.


Ellen April 12, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Wow, this looks great! I often make mango salsa, but I’ve never mixed them with strawberries. I will have to try this!


Angela April 12, 2013 at 9:11 pm

What a great recipe for summer. I am a bit of a chicken though when it comes to ‘super spicy’ and will take the seeds out!


Ja @Ja on the RUN April 12, 2013 at 9:18 pm

Mmmmm… Yummmy :)


Jodea @ April 13, 2013 at 12:52 am

I love to cry when I eat, too.


Albert Raymond April 13, 2013 at 3:06 pm

hmmm, I love mangoes and looks like it’s my luck week. I only had a yummy mango smoothie yesterday. Now it’s mango salsa on my list. Thanks a lot for this great recipe.


Katie @ Talk Less, Say More April 13, 2013 at 5:52 pm

Oh man….YUM!


Amy @ healthy and fit for real April 14, 2013 at 9:12 am

Yum! I love fruit salsas…the sweetness of the fruit and saltiness of the chips- can’t beat that!


Kelsey @aslolife April 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

This looks beyond fabulous–can’t wait to pick up fresh local strawberries this weekend!


Armeen April 16, 2013 at 10:18 am

I’ve seen a slightly similar recipe at costo, but this beats it hands down! I’m taking this to work for lunch week :) Thanks!


Moni Meals April 16, 2013 at 12:32 pm

ahhhhmazing! Great recipe here Jenna and look so yummy!


Jeannie April 20, 2013 at 3:46 pm

This looks so good, I hopped on over for the recipe. I will be leaving out the seeds though. A little heat is all I can handle!


Kara April 29, 2013 at 1:09 pm

I love the summertime food! I made your salsa and really, really loved it. I was hanging out with some friends (it’s hot here, too!) and to cool us down, I also made this:
It’s worth the calories. Thanks for your great recipes!
