Freeze-Dried Mango Salsa

Freeze-Dried Mango Salsa


What’s colorful, fresh, and sweet with a hint of spice?

Mango salsa!

A nice change from regular tomato-based salsa, mango salsa is light and fruity with a refreshing burst of flavor. It pairs well with chips, salads, tacos, and burritos, and tastes amazing atop grilled chicken or steak.

It’s also quite delicious on its own. Just eat it by the spoonful. I think that counts as a salad, doesn’t it?

The best mangoes are those picked (and eaten) in-season (which varies by type of mango), but this salsa can be made year round with freeze-dried mangos or Wildly Organic Dried Mangos!

The process of freeze-drying removes water from fruits and vegetables while maintaining most of the nutritional value, color, and texture. The fruit is freeze-dried in-season, which means you get a nutrient-packed, highly flavorful mango no matter the season!

Avoid the mess associated with peeling and chopping mangoes by using WFN’s Freeze-Dried Mangoes that are already diced. You’ll be able to whip up this salsa in no time! 

It’s extremely helpful to keep a variety of freeze-dried items on hand for quick and easy food prep. Plus, since I keep these types of foods in the pantry, it saves room in the fridge and freezer. 

Red onion and jalapeños add a good deal of spice to this fruit-based salsa. Adjust the level of spiciness by using more or less red onion and jalapeño. Increase or decrease the amount of cilantro as desired to suit your taste.

It’s also worth noting that this salsa has a fairly chunky texture. I decided to leave the diced mango as-is (I like chunky salsa), but you could easily chop the mangoes before rehydrating to create a finer texture.

Do you keep freeze-dried foods in your pantry? Have you ever used mango in this way?
