Recipe Variations:

  • Make sure you use fresh and not frozen fruit.

  • Don’t like coconut? Please feel free to leave it out.

Storage Tips:

SERVE: Serve with tortilla chips or over fish and chicken. 

STORE: Store the salsa in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.

FREEZE: I do not recommend freezing leftover salsa. It will not defrost well, and the fruits will become mushy due to the excess moisture.

Recipe FAQs:

What do you eat with mango salsa?

Besides chips, there are many ways to enjoy this mango and pineapple salsa! You should try it with Smoked Pork Belly Burnt EndsSmoked RibsCarne Asada Tacos, or Beef Enchiladas.

What Do I Use if I Can’t Find a Maui Onion?

If needed, you can substitute a yellow onion for the Maui onion. Both of these types of onions have a mild flavor. Many salsas use red onion. While it is sweet and has great bite, it takes away from the flavors of the tropical fruit. A mild onion adds a more subtle flavor to this salsa recipe.
