Raspberry Mango Salsa #SkinnyTip

Mango Love

I’ve always been a bit apathetic as far as mangoes are concerned. Maybe it  was growing up in Iowa, where a bag of Angel Flake coconut was the most tropical fruit at the grocery store. When I received a delivery of luscious, ripe mangoes this spring, my tune changed immediately. I diced the sweet and juicy, golden-orange flesh of one to make this Raspberry Mango Salsa.

This combination was heavenly. My raspberries were a bit tart, so I added some honey for sweetness. Adjust the recipe according to your preferences. Feel free to chop your fruit and berries a bit smaller so they’re more chip friendly. Honestly, I ate this straight out of the bowl with a spoon. The hubby’s prefers a more pedestrian combination of fruits. And I can’t imagine him eating an apple and banana salsa with chips…maybe that’s OK though! He’s more of a Ruffles with French onion dip sort of guy. So for those of you with more adventuresome palates (I think that’s nearly everyone! ), I hope you’ll hunt down some gorgeous mangoes and whip up some salsa.

Tip #25: Get a good night’s sleep. Being tired lets down your defenses and you’re more likely to overeat. If you have a sleepless night, squeeze in a quick nap to help boost your will power.

  2. Jalapeño, cilantro and the fruits you used are my favourite things in the world! With or without chips, I can finish this bowl in no time!

  4. Great idea for these warm days!

  5. Mango and raspberries sounds so delicious!
    I used to believe that I don’t like mangoes until I came to Australia :) then I realised how delicious fresh mangoes are.. :)

  6. Looks like the discovery of a wonderful fruity way to make salsa! And a whole lot prettier than many =)

  7. Liz, I love this fruit salsa!!! I would be eating this straight out of the bowl with a spoon too!!

  8. For a long time, I could take or leave mangoes, probably for the same reason as you – out here in the middle of nowhere, the ones we got weren’t very impressive. I have since learned to appreciate them more though – beautiful recipe, Liz!

  9. Yum!!!

  10. Love that slight so iciness that mangoes have. This reminds me I must make fish tacos again soon!

  11. Looks so good and so tasty! Pinned!

  12. Everything goes well with raspberries to me. This salsa looks fabulous Liz, the colors are just gorgeous. I could eat a bowl of this for lunch and be a happy camper, for sure!

  13. what a fun and refreshing take on a salsa. love the colors

  14. That would be heaven in a bowl for me. I can’t think of anything I’d rather eat right this instant.

  15. Lizzy, I just love Mango Salsa, and yours with the raspberries is so colorful, beautiful, and so refreshing for the summer months just to eat it as a snack, even! So glad that you are able to creative different things with the mangoes you received. Hopefully they are Florida mangoes…or is it Mexican? Either way, they are equally 1st quality! xo

  16. Love this salsa but I must say that I love French onion dip, too! Perhaps a side by side competiton?

  17. This salsa is so refreshing, mango and raspberry looks so wonderful :D

    Cheers

  18. I love mango salsa but I’ve never had it with raspberries. I think it is a wonderful idea! Love the contrasting colors, Liz. :)

  19. I would have never thought to combine raspberries and mangoes to make a salsa! Looks beautiful!!!! So creative :)

  20. Apples, oranges and bananas were about the extent of the fruit choices where I grew up! I love that exotic fruits are available year round now. This salsa is gorgeous! I wonder how it would be with apple chips? I’m pretty sure I could just eat it with a spoon though. :)

  21. What a gorgeous summery salsa, love the mangoes!

  22. I love the beautiful combination of fruit and colors. Looks delicious!

  23. Liz it’s almost snowing here in Canberra today… thank you for the summery sunshine!

  24. What a wonderful combination Liz! I love the sound of this salsa and would want to eat this straight up with a spoon too! Haha, Bill sounds like my hubby – he’s a ruffles with french onion dip kind of guy too :)

  25. Beautiful salsa…like the combination of mango and raspberries…so refreshing!
    Have a great week Liz :D

  26. So bright and beautiful…and the flavours are amazing too.

  27. Mango and raspberry…beautiful!

    ela h.

  28. Mangoes were something I discovered later in my life too, and I’m so glad I did – they are so creamy and delicious! This salsa looks so fresh and gorgeous! I would put this on anything!

  29. Oh man what a GORGEOUS salsa! I would totally dig into this!

  30. I too would have dug in with a spoon looks so fresh, bright and summery :D

  31. I love mangoes! And they’re terrific in salsa. Never thought to add raspberries to the mix, though — this sounds so terrific. Really creative recipe — thanks.

  32. One amazing combination of salsa… completely in love with it!

  33. Very nice salsa, like the fruit kind and the addition of jalapeno here. Chips maybe not lol, pork, chicken or salmon, yes!

  34. I love mango salsa but have never added raspberries. The raspberries give great colour to the salsa. I didn’t grow up with mangoes either as NZ just isn’t tropical. I remember the first time I tried a mango I found the flavour very unusual – now they’re my favourite summer fruit xx

  35. I’ve put raspberry and mango in a smoothie before, but never in a salad. What a pretty salad! I’ll be nibbling on this soon.

  36. Nice good job! i love it.

  37. Liz, I love all of the creative fruit salsas with mangoes, and really like how you added the raspberries! Color plus flavor! My Bill would be just like yours, going for the French Onion dip with no sense of taste adventure! Oh well, more mango salsa for us to enjoy!

  38. Raspberries and mangoes are one of my favourite summer fruit combinations. I have a crumble recipe using them that’s perfect for summer. And yes, I’d happily eat them out of the bowl with a spoon!

  39. Now,
    that’s a salsa I could devour w/out chips!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxx

  40. Love fruit salsas and mango w/ raspberries is a great combo. So pretty!

  41. Lizzy,
