Paleo Mango Salsa

Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, Minimal Ingredients, Easy

This sweet Paleo mango salsa will liven up any taco night with its full mouth-watering flavor profiles made with simple Paleo ingredients.

I am always looking for ways to switch up our ‘normal’ go-to dinners into fun and exciting dishes. Adding color and new flavors get my kids excited to try new things – especially when they spent some time helping me prep and cook!

This past week, our local supermarket had organic mangoes on sale, so naturally, I loaded up!! Usually, when I ‘load up,’ I buy too many of one thing, and as much as I hate to admit this, sometimes things go to waste.

Well, I’ve learned my lesson. I guess you could say I’ve been around the block one too many times and learned from my mistakes. Tonight was taco night, which is usually a favorite in our house, because who doesn’t love tacos?

(Weird people).

I decided to liven up our night by adding mangoes (so they don’t go to waste) into a salsa for a sweet kick – and boy, I’m so glad I did! My husband couldn’t stop eating it! This salsa is truly addicting when paired with Siete’s Grain-Free Lime Tortilla Chips.

There is an option to add some spice by including a green or red chili pepper to the mix. Out of personal preference, I do not – but I encourage you to do so if you and your family don’t mind a little heat.

You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety for more helpful tips and tricks you’d typically by-pass. Or, if you are feeling lucky, jump to the recipe below and get started!

Either way, I’d love to hear how your salsa turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.

How to Store Paleo Mango Salsa

Mango salsa can be stored in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator for optimal freshness but can be stored up to 5 days maximum. For more extended storage, make a large batch and can the salsa.

The canning method should only be used if you are comfortable canning items. Always disinfect canning jars, lids, and tools beforehand. A properly canned salsa should last between 2 to 5 years in a dark and cool cabinet or pantry.
