I love recipes like this one where you have an option to mix and match ingredients, keeping just one (in this case, the luscious ripe mango) as the base. The Strawberry Mango Salsa is easy to make, but I could as easily made it with the mango and onion, or mango with avocado and thinly sliced capsicum. Fresh strawberries were on hand and had just that bit of tartness to offset the sweetness of the mango, so the choice of ingredients was easy.
Ingredients for the Strawberry Mango Salsa
I have mentioned my little balcony herb garden several times over the last year. In spite of the heat of summer, the herbs have thrived. Except for the parsley which died before I could try to do something about it. The sweet Basil though is doing well (touch wood and wish me continued luck in this), so into the ingredients list it went.
Coriander is a herb I usually have, and it goes well in this strawberry mango salsa. Onions of course are essential here.
Pair the mango salsa with a lemon salad dressing, like my garlicky lemon honey salad dressing, the link to the recipe for which, is here. The honey and lemon enhance the flavours of the salsa.
When strawberries are not in season, you could make an mango avocado salsa, and pair it with a chili lemon salad dressing.
How To Make a Strawberry Mango Salsa
I’ve finally ventured into making Food videos. First I made one for the Garlic Lemon honey Salad dressing, but it was quite a disaster and no amount of editing could help it. The short video below, is for the Strawberry Mango Salsa, and though I have miles to go, I think you would enjoy this one, specially as I show how I cube the mango easily for a mango salad or salsa or just about any recipe using ripe mangoes. It is much less messy than trying to peel the mango and then slicing it, and you don’t have the juice dripping merrily all around and sticking to your fingers.

The mango season is still here, and I have been lucky enough to source firm sweet ones this year. I have a lot of recipes to make and post before the season is over, and mango jam is definitely on that list.
