How to Cut a Mango for this Salsa
Remove seed: Hold the mango upright with one hand on a cutting board, positioning it so that the narrower side is facing you. Cut vertically along both sides of the flat, oblong pit in the center with a sharp knife.
Score: Make lengthwise and crosswise cuts through the flesh (but not the skin) about ½ inch apart. This will create a grid pattern on the mango half.
Remove skin: Hold the scored mango half gently with both hands. Press the skin side upward to invert the mango half, causing the cubes to pop out.

Expert Recipe Tips
- How to know when the fruit is ripe: Ripe mangoes will have a little give when you add pressure to them and will have a pleasant, fruity aroma. They will have a smooth skin and a combination of colors and vibrant hues such as green, yellow, red, or orange. Avoid mangos with wrinkled or shriveled skin, as they may be past their prime.

What to Serve with this Mango Peach Salsa
Enjoy this fresh peach mango salsa recipe a number of different ways:
Absolutely! Adding fresh mango to store-bought salsa is a fantastic way to enhance its flavor and give it a tropical twist. Peel it, slice it into small pieces, and add it to the desired amount of store bought salsa. Adding mango to a spicy salsa will help to balance out the spiciness.
Fresh mangoes can typically last in the refrigerator for about 4 to 7 days, depending on their ripeness and condition at the time of purchase. If you notice any signs of mold, unpleasant odor, or significant changes in texture or appearance, it's best to discard them.
Chili powder's subtle heat, ginger's zesty and slightly spicy flavor, and the warmth of cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, and nutmeg all pair well with the sweetness of mango.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze fruit salsa. Cover it in an air tight container and place in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
