Here’s my favourite part about spring crossing over into summer: the fruits. Oh my, the FRUITS. One day you’re in soup heaven, then the next you’ve crossed immediately into fruit heaven. Mangoes, strawberries, everything! What goes greatly with these fruits? Herbs. OH MY. As if fruits couldn’t get any better, herbs come right into the picture and kick it up ten levels. When I was greeted with about a dozen mangoes, I knew I had to make a salsa out of them. Basil immediately popped into my mind and this Mango Basil Salsa was born.

If you’ve been around, you know I’m growing my own basil. Have I screamed it loud enough? The Mr. and I are now growing three types of basil, rosemary, spinach, tomatoes, thyme and mint. While I started it with the advice and growing help of some amazing parents of friends, aka, just-like-family angels + my own amazing family’s advice, the Mr. has gotten in deep (literally) with helping me. We spent hours this week re planting, pruning and just having fun and laughing in the garden that I am just so excited to grow more, more and more!

Ok, this gardening newbie could literally talk about plants for hours, but I’m known by all to ramble so let’s get back to the Mango Basil Salsa, right?!

Like I said, due to the amount of basil we’ve been going, the moment we got these mangoes I knew I had to use basil with them. OH the combination. How have I never thought of mixing mango with basil?! I asked quite a few of you to guess what I would be making on Instagram and you too were in love with the flavour combo. It’s hard to explain, but know that they bring out the absolute best in each other.

The other parts of the salsa just make it even better. You get this subtle spicy sweet salsa that will go perfectly in everything!  The lime is the bring-it-all-together essential that’ll make you want to eat this Mango Basil Salsa for days. I love that this is a healthy salsa, so easy to make, and will leave you wanting more, whilst nourishing you so much at the same time! YAY for mango and basil!This Easy Mango Basil Salsa takes only 10 minutes with 5 ingredients!

Recipe Notes

This recipe is vegan and gluten free. You can easily double or triple the recipe depending on your party size.

Your mango may produce different amounts of cups. You can easily adjust the other measurements based on the mangoes though.
HOW TO STORE
This salsa is best made and served fresh. While you can store leftovers in the fridge, the mango will begin to get mushy after being in the fridge for a day or so. I recommend making and serving it fresh.
I don't recommend freezing this salsa.
