Deliciously Colorful Mexican Vegan Mango Salsa for Summer

by | May 29, 2019

Mango salsa is one of my favorite toppings for the array of fresh, Mexican-inspired food that I always binge-eat during Summers when I’m back home in California. Fresh, colorful, and full of texture, this vegan mango salsa is a perfect addition to any salad, burrito, or even barbecue when you want to add a bit more color to your plate. With only an 8-ingredient list and 2 steps to the process, you can literally toss this recipe together in just a few minutes. If you’re really pressed for time, use a food processor to get all of your ingredients chopped instantly and set the salsa in a bowl over ice while serving if you don’t have the time to refrigerate.

As a perfect balance of sweet and spicy as well as smooth and crunchy, you’ll be making this mango salsa all Summer long. This recipe can also be adjusted to add fewer chill peppers, to make it more kid-friendly if spicy food isn’t your children’s favorite.
