How to Make the Best Mango Salsa
First, combine the mango, bell pepper, red onion, jalapeño, and cilantro in a mixing bowl and stir until evenly mixed. Then, drizzle with lime juice and toss well to coat. Let the mango salsa sit for 5-10 minutes to allow all the flavors to infuse into each other. Serve immediately with a side of tortilla chips.
How to Store
If you don't eat all of your mango salsa in one sitting like me, you can store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. But the sooner you eat it, the better. Your veggies will start to get soggy the longer they sit together.
