This is a delicious sweet and spicy fruit salsa. Great with grilled seafood, chicken or meat.
I like to eat it just with taco chips. It does not last long at our house. This salsa does not take tomatos. Enjoy

This looks really yummy. I bet it would be good with sweet plantain chips you can get at the store. I will definitely have to try this recipe.

Hi Juliann! I want to make this tomorrow but I couldn't get the tamarind juice...can I just use extra lime juice and some lemon juice? I love mango salsa! I usually buy it at Costco, but I'm sure this is much better!

I made this today and it was very good! So much better than the one from Costco because this has such a nice fresh taste and the texture is slightly crunchy...not mushy like the jarred kind! I used lemon zest and extra lime juice because I didn't have the tamarind juice. I didn't use the serrano chile and I used a jarred, tamed, jalapeno pepper because I'm wimpy when it comes to spiciness! this all worked out perfectly! We ate this with tortilla chips! Here is my photo of this...
