Strawberry Mango Homemade Salsa on Chips

Are you looking for a simple strawberry mango salsa recipe that will knocks the socks off of everyone at your next BBQ? I’ve got your back, sister.

As a self-proclaimed salsa fanatic who is obsessed with all varieties (tomato, green, corn, bean, fruity, give me it!) this mango salsa recipe is in my top five.

Best Mango Salsa

The flavors are perfect for this time of year, the colors are gorgeous, and it tastes like the perfect summer day inside your mouth. Plus, if you can chop an onion you can make this salsa. It is so easy and it’s a major crowd-pleaser.

You’ll want to use ripe mangos and strawberries for this homemade salsa recipe. Local produce is always best, if available!

How Can You Tell a Ripe Mango?

You won’t go by the color – you’ll go by the feel. Color isn’t an indication of ripeness! You’re looking for a mango that gives slightly when you squeeze it. Ripe mangos sometimes have a fruity aroma near the stem. I like my mangos to be firm but not too mushy!

Choosing Ripe Strawberries

You’re looking for fragrant berries that are firm, deep/bright red, and shiny. Don’t worry about the shape because that’s not indicative of the flavor. Look for berries with no white around the stem.

Remember that strawberries don’t ripen after they are picked, so if they aren’t ripe at time of purchase, they never will be.

Mango Salsa for Fish and Chicken

You can eat this homemade salsa with chips, but it’s also delicious on top of fish such as halibut, salmon, or tilapia. It’s perfect with chicken too! Make the recipe below just as stated.

Cook the fish or chicken in the oven with a tablespoon of oil and a tablespoon of lime juice as well as some salt and pepper. Once done, bring it out of the oven and spoon the salsa on top. Serve.

Here is how you make this tasty homemade salsa!

Strawberry mango salsa ingredients

Strawberry Mango Salsa

Ingredients

  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 2 ripe mangoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 6-8 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Directions

Combine all ingredients in bowl, and mix. Refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving. Serve with cinnamon chips or tortilla chips (I love it with either!).

Make it Spicy

If you live life on the spicy side, don’t be afraid to add 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño (seeds removed) to this recipe. You’ll just stir it in with all of the other ingredients. Obviously it’s going to add a bit of kick, but it will still be tasty.

Strawberry Mango Salsa Recipe in a Bowl

This homemade mango salsa is a total stunner, right? Beautiful in the bowl and beautiful in your mouth! I love how the flavors mix together and they are great with a sweeter cinnamon chip and delicious with a salty tortilla chip. It’s pretty much the unicorn of homemade salsas, friends.

Weight Watchers Friendly

One last note – just so you know. I love the Weight Watchers Freestyle program, and this salsa is ZERO points! It’s perfect for eating with chips (you’ll have to count those points, unfortunately), but it’s also great for topping fish or chicken.

Delicious homemade salsa with mango, strawberries, and basil

If you use fresh fish and chicken breast that are skinless, that means you get to have a main meal for zero points. Don’t you love that? I do!!
