Ready To Take Your Salsa To The Next Level? Try Using These Two Unexpected Ingredients!

Salsa is such an excellent flavor booster to so many dishes: tacos, nachos, burritos, or even by itself! And in the heat of summer, salsa makes for a delicious appetizer or an afternoon snack. But we thought we’d give salsa a summer spin by removing the heavier ingredients and replacing them with mangos and apples!

This salsa has a lot of acidic ingredients which do well to cut down on the fattiness of fish or carnitas tacos. And because the ingredients are marinated in a special dressing, the longer you wait to try some, the more fused together the flavors will be!

Bust out the tortilla chips; this salsa is a game changer!

Mango And Green Apple Salsa

(serves 3-4)


  • 1 green apple
  • 1 mango
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (additional olive oil for cooking)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Combine orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, and vinegar in a mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in your minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  3. Dice your mango and apple into pieces that are about 1″ long and 1/2″ around. Then mince your cilantro, and onion.
  4. In a medium saucepan, saute your mango, apple, cilantro, and onion in the additional olive oil for 5 minutes. This will bring extra flavors out of the mango and apple.
  5. Toss your sauteed ingredients in with your wet ingredients. Make sure your dressing covers all of the sauteed ingredients.
  6. Chill before serving on top of tacos, nachos, or serve with chips for a simpler treat!
