Watermelon Mango Salsa

If you want to make a tortilla chip, a fillet of grilled fish, not to mention your mouth happy, you really should make this fruity salsa. It is a beautiful medley of colors, flavors and textures. I recently tripled the recipe for someone’s party and I heard it was a big hit. I made a small batch for dinner the other night, added some pickled jalapeño and served it over grilled walleye. David mentioned at some point, “we should eat this often”. This salsa would also be nice with seared tuna, or any grilled fish from mahi mahi to salmon.  Or the tortilla chips. I ♥ Donkey Chips.

serves: 4-6

2 1/2 to 3 cups diced seedless watermelon
1 granny smith apple, finely diced
1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced*
1/2 small red onion, diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
1 bunch cilantro, stems removed and leaves chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon coarse salt

Combine the salsa ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

Mango is one of my favorite fruits, but it is rather annoying to prep. I heard about this life hack for peeling mangoes from my cousin and it has made me feel like I’m winning at life. Now I eat mangoes all of the time.

  1. Your recipe for the watermelon mango salsa looks fabulous!!!! I love every single ingredient you used. How long do you think the salsa would keep in refrigerator if I made a large batch and did not eat in one sitting? I tried to get on the web site for easy way to peel mango and could not get it. I hope you make this when we are visiting you in August!!!!

  2. Hi Marge! It lasts in the fridge for about 3 days. We have made it a few times now, and it still tastes very good until about the 4th day. We can definitely make it when you visit! I’m not sure about the link, I checked it and it worked on my end, but you could just google ‘how to peel a mango with a cup’ and there will be multiple videos. It’s a pretty neat idea. See you soon!
