Tips To Make Mango Pico de Gallo

You can take some time to look at these tips that I prepare for you in advance for the perfect making of this dish:

  1. The first step is to select ripe, juicy mangoes. Avoid mangos that are too soft or bruised.
  2. Once you have your mangos, cut them into small cubes.
  3. Next, finely chop up an onion and a couple of serrano peppers. If you want milder salsa, you can remove the seeds from the peppers.
  4. Finally, mix everything together in a bowl and add freshly squeezed lime juice and chopped cilantro to taste. For best results, allow the salsa to sit for an hour or so before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
