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 mango pico de gallo is mostly the same, but with the addition of sweet juicy mango, and it’s a completely different experience. You can make this entirely with mango, or you can combine both tomato and mango together, it’s up to you and delicious both ways! This Mango Pico de Gallo is perfect for scooping up with chips, but also a great garnish on salads and chicken , steak, or fish tacos.
- Mango – You’ll need one medium to large mango, or about 1 cup chopped. There are different varieties of mango and if you’re grabbing the small yellow varieties you’ll need closer to 2-3 mangoes to get enough. Choosing a ripe mango is similar to feeling for a ripe avocado. It should have a light softness to it when you press into it, but not too much!
- Onion –you can use yellow or red onion in this recipe. I love the purple color with the bright yellow fruit so I usually use red!
- Jalapeno – Not a fan of too much heat? 1/2 a jalapeno without seeds is a nice, mild-medium heat; go from there. You can also choose to skip the jalapeno all together (I did in my photos!)
- Tomato – this is optional. Sometimes I make this only with mango, other times I’ll throw a tomato in there as well, it’s delicious both ways!
How To Make Mango Pico De Gallo
- It doesn’t get much easier than this. Chop up your mango, onions, jalapeno, and cilantro. Mince your garlic. Toss everything together, add lime juice and salt (and a drizzle of oil if you like), and serve!
This mango pico de gallo goes with so many things! It’s perfect on salads, grilled meats, fish tacos, or burrito bowls. Eat with beans and rice, tortilla chips, or even a spoon. It’s THAT good!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this ahead of time? This pico de gallo is best served right away, but could be made a few hours ahead. To store leftovers, cover tightly, store in fridge, and use within 24 hours. After that, the mangoes will begin to get squishy.Print
