Ingredients & Substitutions Notes

This recipe uses pretty simple ingredients. You may already have most of what you need on hand…

  • Peaches & Mangos – You can use fresh, frozen or canned fruit for this recipe. For the sake of ease I usually just use canned peaches and mangos. No washing, no peeling and really no fuss.
  • Cherry Tomatoes – I prefer to use diced cherry tomatoes in fruit salsa. The higher sugar content in cherry tomatoes actually pairs really well with the sweetness of most fruits. If you can't find cherry tomatoes, both grape tomatoes and roma tomatoes work good too.
  • Bell Peppers – You can actually use whatever peppers you want, but I prefer red and yellow bell peppers for their extra sweetness.
  • Red Onion – Red onions work best for this recipe. They have beautiful color and a mild flavor, which makes them a good pick for most recipes that call for fresh onion.
  • Jalapenos – I like to toss in a couple of seeded and diced up, fresh jalapeño peppers for just a hint of spice. If you don't care for spicy foods, you can choose to omit them entirely. You can also add diced serrano peppers, chile peppers, habanero peppers, chipotle peppers, poblano peppers and even banana peppers. If you prefer sweet over spicy, maybe go for mini sweet peppers instead. Get creative!
  • Cilantro – Fresh cilantro gives the best flavor, but you can also substitute dried cilantro if that's all you have on hand. If you use dried cilantro, remember to use roughly half of what you would use fresh. This recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, so you would want to use 2 tablespoons of dried cilantro.
  • Juiced Lime – The juice from 1/2 of a fresh lime adds great zesty flavor to just about any fruit salsa. Although fresh limes are usually better, you can also just use about 1 tablespoon of bottled lime juice instead.
  • Kosher Salt – I like to use a coarse kosher salt for this recipe. The larger crystal size takes longer to dissolve into the salsa, which can help to distribute the salt more uniformly.
  • Garlic Cloves – You'll need to mince up a couple garlic cloves for this peach and mango salsa. Sometimes I cheat and use already minced garlic from the store instead.

Prepping the Ingredients

Before getting started, the peaches, mangos, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, jalapenos, cilantro and garlic cloves will all need to be finely diced with a large knife or vegetable chopper. If you don't know how to dice, here's a handy guide on how to cut a pepper, which includes step by step instructions for dicing just about any fruit or veggie on a cutting board. Of course, you can also just pulse everything a few times in a food processor if you have one.

Don't forget to slice your bell peppers and jalapeno peppers in half and use a spoon to scrape the seeds out before you dice them up! You can skip this step if you prefer a spicier salsa.

Expert Tips and Recipe FAQ's

Is mango peach salsa spicy?

Thanks to the jalapeno, this fruit salsa has just the right balance of sweetness to spiciness. It's just spicy enough, but it's not so overpowering that you'll have to drown your mouth out with water to cool it down afterward. If you don't like spicy food, you can drop the jalapenos from this recipe altogether.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can make peach mango salsa ahead of time. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, leftover salsa should keep for up to 5-7 days. In fact, letting it set in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight before serving may improve the flavor!

Can you freeze fruit salsa?

Yes, you can freeze this mango peach salsa. Store it in an airtight container or scoop it into plastic freezer bags, and it should keep in the freezer for 1-2 months. Be sure to pull it out and set it in the refrigerator to thaw overnight before serving.
