  • A squeeze of fresh lime: The acidity of fresh lime juice brightens the flavors and balances the sweetness of the mangoes.
  • A pinch of salt to bring it all together: Salt enhances the overall flavor profile of the salsa. Adjust the amount to your taste.

    Tips:

    • Mango selection: Choose ripe mangoes that have a slight give when pressed. Underripe mangoes will be tart and lack sweetness.
    • Red onion: Red onion adds a nice bite to the salsa. If you prefer a milder onion flavor, try soaking the diced onion in cold water for 10 minutes before adding it to the salsa.
    • Noubess heat: Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce can vary in intensity depending on the brand. Start with a little and add more to taste. Red onion: If the raw onion flavor is too strong, you can soak the diced onion in cold water for 10 minutes before adding it to the salsa.
    • Freshness is key: Use the freshest ingredients possible for the best flavor.

    Variations

    The beauty of this fiery mango salsa recipe lies in its versatility. Here are a few variations to tantalize your taste buds and explore different flavor profiles:

    • Tropical Twist: Add a touch of pineapple or chopped papaya for a tropical explosion.
    • Smoky Chipotle: Substitute smoked paprika or a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for some smoky heat.
    • Black Bean Fiesta: Add a can of drained and rinsed black beans for a heartier salsa, perfect for topping salads or using as a taco filling.
    • Jalapeño Kick: Miss the jalapeño? Dice up half a fresh jalapeño (seeded or not, depending on your spice preference) and add it alongside the red onion.
    • Cilantro Classic: Prefer cilantro to parsley? Swap them out in a 1:1 ratio for a more traditional flavor profile.
    • Tangy Twist: For an extra burst of acidity, add a teaspoon of chopped fresh pineapple or a splash of pineapple juice.
    • Avocado Adventure: Diced avocado adds a creamy richness to the salsa. However, since avocado browns quickly, it’s best to toss it in with fresh lime juice before serving to prevent discoloration.

    Remember: When adding new ingredients, adjust the amount of lime juice and salt to maintain a balanced flavor profile.
