Ingredients for Fresh Peach Mango Salsa

  • Fresh tomatoes: Tomatoes play well with the peaches and mango, combining for balanced flavor.
  • Fresh peaches: Fresh peaches taste so good, it’s no wonder they’re delicious in salsa too.
  • Red onion: Onion adds a little bite to this salsa.
  • Sweet yellow pepper: Yellow peppers provide crunch and texture in this unique salsa.
  • Peeled mango: The mango’s tropical flavor pairs well with the peaches.
  • Jalapeño pepper: The jalapeño pepper adds a hint of heat to this salsa, balancing out the sweetness of the fruits. Remove the seeds if you want to take much of the heat away; leave seeds in for a spicy hot salsa.
  • Garlic: Garlic’s flavor profile creates extra dimension in this salsa.
  • Lime juice: The acidity in lime juice adds a fresh citrus note that brightens the salsa’s flavor.
  • Cilantro: Cilantro has a unique flavor that’s ideal for salsa. If you don’t like cilantro, no worries—just omit it!
  • Tortilla chips: Crunch, crunch, crunch! Tortilla chips are the vehicle for the salsa. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to eat it with a spoon though, right?

Directions 

Step 1: Mix it up

Combine all the ingredients except the tortilla chips in a large bowl. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for an hour or longer. Let the mango peach salsa sit at room temperature for five minutes before serving it with tortilla chips.

Editor’s Tip: Wash your hands immediately after cutting and handling the jalapeño pepper and its seeds. Avoid touching your eyes, as the heat from the peppers will sting.

Peach Mango Salsa Variations 

  • Nectarines, anyone? Use nectarines in place of peaches. Nectarines taste similar to peaches, but they don’t have the fuzzy skin. There’s no need to peel them either.
  • Pineapple paradise: Add even more of a tropical vibe to this salsa by swapping pineapple chunks for the peaches. Talk about refreshing and delicious!
  • Omit or adjust ingredients: Feel free to tweak the portions of certain ingredients, or even omit them altogether. For instance, if you’re not a fan of yellow peppers, don’t use them; if you like spicy salsa, add more jalapeño seeds. Customize this to your liking, while keeping the same general amount of fruits.
  • Serve atop food: This peach mango salsa recipe makes the perfect topper for grilled fish or chicken dishes. It’s also delicious as a condiment for fish or chicken tacos, or as a topping on a light, fresh salad.

How to Store Peach Mango Salsa

Store peach mango salsa in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator. Glass storage containers work well, as they’re easy to clean and don’t stain the way plastic sometimes does.

How long does peach mango salsa last?

Though it’s best fresh, peach mango salsa keeps in the fridge for several days. To brighten up the flavor after a day or two, squirt a little lime juice on it before serving.

Can I make peach mango salsa in advance?

Want to make this salsa tonight for a picnic tomorrow? Go for it! The flavors will meld even better kept in the fridge overnight. Just don’t make it more than a day or so in advance, or it may not taste fresh.

Can you freeze peach mango salsa?

While you technically can freeze this salsa in zippered freezer bags or a freezer-proof container for up to a month, the texture will change drastically once thawed, so the salsa may not be as enjoyable.

Peach Mango Salsa Tips

Can I make peach mango salsa in a blender?

Yes, this recipe for peach mango salsa whips up quickly in a blender or a food processor. Pulse all the salsa ingredients on medium until the salsa is as smooth or chunky as you like.

How can I tell if a mango or peach is ripe enough?

Ripe, fresh fruits make the best tasting fruit salsas, so what’s the secret to picking good fruit? Choose a mango or peach that’s a little soft to the touch, but not bruised or shriveling.
