Mango Pico de Gallo

One of my very favorite things about this time of the year (aside from the weather being absolutely amazing in Louisiana right now) is that produce is starting to get cheap. Gone are the days of rubbery, $7 watermelons and tiny, juiceless limes. Like those rock-hard, $2 each mangoes that stared at me all winter long, mocking me while I longed for this or this. But now. NOW. Those mangoes are luscious and juicy and 3 for $1. (Need help picking out a good mango an figuring out what the heck to do with it? Click here.)

Now…I could eat regular pico de gallo with a spoon. And I am not kidding. I kind of sometimes pretend it’s gazpacho and forgo the chips altogether. This pico de gallo has EXACTLY the same ingredients, only substituting mangoes for the tomatoes, and it’s a completely different experience.


My husband thinks if salsa doesn’t come in a jar and taste vaguely of ketchup that it’s not worth eating. However, he LOVES this stuff. I think HE would eat it without chips (and probably does when I’m not watching). I love it, too–there is something so yummy about salty, spicy mangoes. This is a perfect little snack for all those upcoming poolside parties.

It also makes a great garnish on salads and chicken , steak, or fish tacos (coming soon to a favorite cooking blog near you).

  1. I rarely comment on here, but I just had to tell you guys how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE your website! I have made so many things from here and I've never been disappointed. Ever. You guys are great! Thanks for making our dinners a litte more tasty 🙂 Oh, and I'm totally trying this mango recipe too…looks so delicious. Thanks and keep it up! Love u guys.

  2. YUM-O! This looks delish! RonChops and I bought a ton of mangos the other day (same deal that you got 3 for 1). I so do love spring and all the fresh produce that's coming out now!

    Thanks for the recipe girls!

  3. Confession time: I have only ever bought ONE mango in my lifetime. I thought I knew what I was doing when cutting it, but it turns out the dang thing probably wasn't ripe yet because it was ROCK HARD!! I could barely get me knife into it and we threw it out. I've been too afraid to buy another one since that. Any tips for picking one out?!? I do like them (as does my toddler) and I'd love to try recipes like this.

  4. I love pico de gallo! I made some recently, and I happen to have cilantro and a mango – I think I'll make some for tonight! YUMMY!

  5. I am the same way with pico de gallo, I will forgo the chips and just eat it with a spoon. This mango version looks delicious. I'm definitely going to have to try this when the mangos here are looking better 🙂
