Mango Corn Salsa

This salsa has many tasty uses, so consider doubling the recipe.

  • 1 ripe mango, cut in half, seeded and meat scooped out and chopped
  • ¼ small red onion, small dice
  • ½ small (341ml/12oz) can corn, drained
  • 2½ tsp minced jalapeño NOTE: The heat in peppers is in the white membrane; remove it to reduce heat and bitterness.
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced basil
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp salt and generous grind black pepper
  • If you like extra kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes

Make the salsa up ahead of time by simply combining all the ingredients.  Keep covered in the fridge for an hour or a day to let the flavours meld.  Stir before serving and adjust the seasonings, if necessary.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with tortilla chips, wedges of focaccia, or cheese quesadillas.
  • It makes a great condiment for pork, chicken, fish, or duck.  
  • Grill slices of bread and top with the salsa & shredded cheese for a fruity bruschetta.
  • Serve alongside grilled pineapple for a unique appetizer or dessert course.
  • Spoon it on top of cream cheese or chèvre goat cheese and serve with crackers.
  • Add it to a sandwich wrap with lettuce, tomato, and leftover shredded meat.
  • Roll it up with your favourite fish in soft corn tortillas for tasty fish tacos served with guacamole.
  • Make a great leftover “surprise” burrito with the salsa and any combination of last night’s rice, beans, grilled or steamed veggies, shredded/chopped pork, chicken, turkey, ham, or beef.
  • Recipe for a tasty pizza inspired by the Ritz Deli North:  Spread a homemade or store-bought crust with pizza sauce, strips of ham or shredded chicken, red bell pepper, and the salsa.  Top with shredded cheese and cook in the oven or on a hot grill.  It’s unbelievable good!
