This fresh mango salsa is deliciously fresh and summery and it’s mild in flavor since we haven’t added any jalapeno to the mix.

Whaaat???? No jalapeno???  Nope!  You can add it if you must (your house – your rules), but I haven’t added any jalapeno to this fresh mango salsa recipe, because this is how I make it most of the time.  I typically want a refreshing pop of flavor, rather than the surprise bite of heat.  The first time I made this tropical salsa, I made a large vat of it because I was having company for dinner.  I was serving it with sea bass.  It’s so good with sea bass!  As we sat around the table after we had finished with our meal, we polished off the fruit salsa by the spoonfuls like it was dessert.

The cucumber is a great add to this salsa.  It gives it a nice crispy crunch, not to mention the added antioxidant and detox perks.
