Ingredients You Will Need
Using a ton of readily available produce, whether from your grocery store, a market, or your garden!
- Sliced strawberries: Look for plump, red, sweet smelling strawberries. I always recommend buying organic whenever possible.
- Diced mango: Ripe mangoes will have a little give when pressed gently. They will have a sweet smell to them and no discoloration on the skin.
- Diced avocado: A creamy component, you want it ripe but not too mushy.
- Minced onion: Use whatever type of onion you want. Red onion is always nice to eat raw as it’s a little sweeter than regular white onions.
- Finely chopped jalapeno: However many seeds you leave in there is up to you! The more you leave, the spicier it will be. For a mild strawberry mango salsa, remove all the seeds.
- Chopped cilantro: A delicious pop of color and herbaceous addition.
- Lime juice: A citrusy flavor that packs a zesty punch. It’s such a great balance to the sweetness and also helps to create juices to help the flavors marry.
- Salt: Draws out the natural sweet juices and flavors of all the combined ingredients.
- Tabasco or red hot pepper flakes: If you like a little heat, add in either option!
How to Make Strawberry Mango Salsa
This easy strawberry mango salsa can be made in minutes!
When you’re dicing everything, consider the size of the fruit. You want everything to be uniform size so that way you don’t have large chunks of one thing while other things are getting lost. Some of everything in every bite is what you want.
Also, ask yourself…do you like your salsa chunky or fine?
The jalapeno you’ll chop up finely, so no need to worry about making them the same size.
Add everything into a medium bowl, and give it a gentle toss. Do a little taste test and then adjust the salt and spiciness to taste. Voila!
Use your extra strawberries in healthy strawberry muffins!
Tips for Best Results
- Make ahead. You can make this easy strawberry mango salsa a few hours ahead. The longer it sits the more the flavors will come together. The lime juice will help to prevent the avocado from turning brown.
- Ripeness. You want ripe fruit, but not overly fruit. Once the fruit is overripe it can quickly get soft and eventually mushy.
- Just the right size. Whether you want larger chunks or smaller chunks, just make sure they’re all the same size. As mentioned above, the jalapeno is the exception! Chop it finely so that it’s not overwhelming.
Can I Make It Without the Spice?
Definitely! It will still be sweet and savory and citrusy, so you can’t go wrong with that. Eliminate the jalapeno altogether or just use it without any of the seeds for a mild version.
This would be a great way to serve with something like Thai salmon that already has a bit of heat to it.
Delicious Ways To Use This Salsa
There are tons of ways to enjoy any salsa recipe and not just for dipping chips. I love to serve this one as part of a big party spread alongside all kinds of dishes like:
I recommend red onion when using it raw in a recipe with a sweet component. Unless it specifies otherwise! It’s sweeter, milder, less pungent, and adds great flavor with that delicious crispy texture.
Add a little sweetness to the lime juice by combining it with a little bit of honey or maple syrup. The warm flavor of cinnamon would be a nice addition.
How to Store It
This strawberry salsa is best served on the same day. I’m sure you won’t have difficulty using it all up! While you’re waiting to serve it, keep it stored in the fridge for the day. Cover it with plastic wrap and allow the flavors to just get stronger and better!

Fruit salsas are not good to freeze, or any salsas.

A. Maze. Ing. This is my new favorite salsa! The only things I left out were the optional ingredients; hot sauce and pepper flakes because….1) hot sauce usually alters the flavor of things and 2) I used two jalapenos and they were plenty hot! It complimented your “Grilled Fish Tacos” perfectly, but I would eat this on its own by the spoonful or just with tortilla chips. It would be great as a snack / appetizer or light lunch. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!
I learnt smth new about hot pepper flakes.:) Glad you liked it, Kandi!
YUM! Made it for cinco de mayo, was gone first.
I made this and now I am addicted! It is good on fish tacos or just with chips. Thanks!
Haha, that’s true. I love fruit salsas. Perfect for summer.
This is delicious! I made it Sunday to share at a party. I made it again on Monday because we loved it so much (including my 7 month old daughter). I love to be in the kitchen, but I am not very creative on my own–I rely heavily on food blogs and I am so glad to have recently found yours. Thank you!
You are welcome, Laura. I remember once I tried fruit salsa, I kept making it for days. I will make this one tomorrow as well. To pair with healthy tortilla chips and a glass of wine.:) Creating a recipe takes time, much easier to follow one. It’s a job.:) So glad to gain you as a new follower. I love making recipes and hearing the feedback!
Oh my goodness. I need all of this right now to stuff my face with. So refreshing, juicy and delicious.
Haha, thank you! If you control the amount of chips, totally guilt free. Once you are over the limit, slice up some raw zucchini or cucumber into “chips”.;)
Hi Olena! What a great idea pairing the mango with sweet strawberries and savoury onion! I love this combo. I also enjoy any dip with a little avocado in it, so this has my name written all over it. Bring on more mango recipes! 😉 I will also have to look for those healthy chips you have, they look good.
Thank you, Allison. I love fruit. Really prefer it to cupcakes. Like for real!
I absolutely love bright and fresh fruit salsas like this! I am going to keep this handy to make this summer.
I couldn’t leave a comment on your blog, just wouldn’t work. So I’ll say it here. You are so beautiful! I finally was happy to put a face to your name.:) Although I do not have any health issues, like you I find a hard time to commit to any plan or diet. I eat clean and healthy, all in moderation. I noticed lately I bake mostly vegan and gluten free, just by accident. But I wouldn’t mind to eat plain Greek yogurt and cottage cheese. I use only a bit of milk for coffee and barely eat cheese. All organic of course. Just wanted to say hi.:) Love your recipes!
I love salsa! I would love it even more if we used the veggies right from our own garden. I’ll have to pass this on to the cook in the house.
Yeah, I wish that too!
