💡 Tips for making the best peach mango salsa

- For the best texture, chop the mango and peaches into uniform pieces (about ¼ to ½ inch).
- For overripe fruits, dice them into slightly larger pieces to avoid mushy fruit.
- Peel the peach skin using a vegetable peeler before chopping. Use a sharp knife and be careful dicing the fruit.
- Remove the jalapeno ribs and seeds before dicing if you want less heat.
- Adjust seasoning to taste. Add more lime juice for acidity, salt for savoriness, or extra jalapeno for heat.
- Make mango habanero salsa by using habanero peppers instead of jalapeño peppers.
Recipe Variations and Substitutions

- To make a sweet salsa, omit the jalapeno and ginger.
- Use any color bell pepper, but red bell pepper looks really good.
- Chop the onion and jalapeno into very fine pieces.
- The salsa tastes best if it sits for an hour before serving for the juices to meld.
- Add the lime juice shortly before serving to prevent the acid from breaking down the fruit. Try to use the juice from fresh limes rather than bottled lime juice.
- To make salsa ahead, chop the fruits ahead of time and store them separately.
- If the fruits aren’t ripe enough, add a teaspoon of brown sugar to the salsa along with the salt.
- Leftover salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
