Mango Strawberry Salsa

Hello everyone – how are you doing? Enjoying the summer weather?

I am also doing well; thanks for asking. The greatest update from my previous post – Ham Pasta Salad – is that the wildfire around our area is officially under control, and it is not expected to spread. Most of the evacuated folks (over 16,000 needed to leave their houses) are now allowed to return. Unfortunately, it’s confirmed that around 150 houses were lost – what an ordeal.

Certainly, the strong rains and low temperatures have greatly contributed, and that’s wonderful. But it’s also a tad too refreshing for June – for example, yesterday’s maximum temperature throughout the day reached 14 C, but with that cold soaking rain it didn’t feel more than 8 C.

As a result, I am craving something warm and comforting. But let’s pretend it’s a sweltering day outside that’s why I am sharing this refreshing recipe! :)

Mango Strawberry Salsa

Who loves salsa, please raise your hand?! We do. It’s super refreshing, juicy, and tasty – perfect for summer.

Most people probably enjoy salsa as a dip with tortilla chips or condiment for tacos. But we prefer it as a side dish (just like a salad) or even a topping for bruschetta.

This Mango Strawberry Salsa is so lusciously, sweet, piquant, savoury, and tart at the same time. It features fresh mango, strawberries, jalapenos, lime, and fresh herbs (such as oregano, mint, and thyme.)

You can serve this salsa with fish and seafood, grilled meats or simply with crusty bread. You can also use it as a dip, but in this case you should cube / mince the ingredients more finely. I would recommend to enjoy the salsa within two days, but it will be delicious even longer. Just keep in mind that the longer it stays, the more juices it releases. So you may need to discard some of the excessive liquid.

Rather than, it’s ridiculously easy to make – but it’s surprisingly good.

This Mango Strawberry Salsa with shallots, jalapenos, lime, and fresh herbs is a tasty and refreshing condiment or appetizer. Use as a side dish, dip, or simply a topping for your toasts and bruschetta. It is a large serving (about 5 cups) that will be fine when refrigerated for about 2 days, so you can always make twice less if you do not need that much.


  • 1 large mango, peeled and cubed (~2 cups cubed)

  • ~ 250 gr. strawberries, hulled and cubed/sliced

  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno (to taste), seeded and thinly sliced

  • juice of 1/2 to 1 lime (to taste)

  • 1-2 shallots, minced (about 1/2 cup minced)

  • 7-10 large mint leaves, sliced

  • 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme

  • 1/2 tsp. fresh oregano

  • a good pinch of salt and black pepper


  • Simply combine in a large bowl the cubed mango, strawberries, jalapeno, shallots, and herbs. Season with the lime juice, salt, and pepper and gently mix to coat. Try and adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Please note if you are planning to serve it as a condiment / dip for tortilla chips or tacos, you may want to cube the mango and strawberries more finely.
  • You can serve it right away, but I would recommend chilling it for about 30 minutes. You can serve it with grilled meat, fish, seafood, or simply as a topping for bread. Keep the leftovers refrigerated for up to two days. It will be fine if stored longer, but please keep in mind that wit the time the salsa will release a lot of juice – you may want to discard it prior to serving. Enjoy!

    Hello! I’m glad to hear that you’re doing well and that the wildfire situation in your area is under control. It’s unfortunate to hear about the houses that were lost, but it’s a relief that most evacuated individuals are now able to return.

    I’m so glad the fire is contained, but so sad for all of those people who lost their homes. ugh.

    I’ll be honest, Ben, this salsa looks so good that all I need is a spoon! We’re grilling halibut this weekend and this looks the perfect way to make it shine.

    Fruit salsas are always a fun summer recipe! I love pairing them with salty tortilla chips for a sweet + salty combo. We’ve made a peach salsa in the past, but I like this version with fruit that is more common in early summer. I’ll have to give it a try! Also, glad to hear the wildfires are under control.
