Mango, Pineapple & Cranberry Salsa


  Summer is the time to experiment with different seasonal salsas. And why not take advantage of all of the juicy ripe fruit in season right now?  Chips and salsa or chips and guacamole are my go-to appetizer when the weather is hot.  We eat them constantly!  You have likely seen mango salsa here and there at restaurants or at the grocery store, but what about mango pineapple cranberry salsa? 🙂  I love adding mango to food and drinks…like this Banana-Mango Smoothie or my Mango Gaucamole.

This would be perfect for an appetizer, snack or a side dish for a BBQ party.  The nice thing about fruit salsas is that you can definitely serve them traditionally as you’d serve tomato salsa but you can also use them as more of a chutney served over some grilled chicken or pork.  You can also add anything you like to this….next time I might add black beans!


Mango, Pineapple & Cranberry Salsa with Lime and Cilantro Recipe


1 ripe mango, peeled, cored and diced small (about 2 cups)
1 cup finely chopped cranberries
1 cup diced pineapple
½ cup minced red onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
4 tablespoons lime juice
3-4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salt, to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)


Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, toss well,  and season with salt, to taste.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

The salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

    This salsa looks like it would taste really great! I love salsa but really have only ever tried the traditional kind.

      Fruit salsas are awesome – you should try them sometime!

    This looks really delicious! One of my friends served her fruit salsa with those cinnamon pita chips and it was out of this world! I think this is going on our halibut later this week!

      I bet they’d be great with cinnamon chips!! I thought of that earlier actually and wished I had some to dip in it…

    I have not made a fruit salsa in a long while. I love it on fish and turkey and salads just to name a few. Have a super week. BAM

    • July 23, 2013 at 10:58 PM #

      I bet it would be great on a salad – good idea!

  5. July 23, 2013 at 11:12 PM #

    This salsa looks great, I love the idea of a fresh fruit salsa! Makes me think summer!

    I adore fruit salsas but often find them to be more like a dessert. Your salsa is the perfect balance I hope for with fresh fruit AND savory flavors such as red onions, jalapeno, and cilantro! YUM

    • July 24, 2013 at 11:33 AM #

      I agree – it can definitely serve as a dessert!

    This is a stellar idea –combining mango, pineapple and cranberry. Very summer-y and very pretty! Delicious Ashley! 🙂

    • July 24, 2013 at 11:32 AM #

      Thanks, Anne – I loved the colors in it 🙂

  8. July 24, 2013 at 8:20 AM #

    I so want to dig into this! The sweet and spicy flavors seem like they would work so well together. Love the addition of cranberries! I have been eating chips and dip for dinner sometimes lately. It’s so quick, easy, and yummy!

    • July 24, 2013 at 11:32 AM #

      Thank you! Yes the flavors were wonderful!

  10. July 24, 2013 at 11:56 AM #

    This looks so good, especially for summer!! Is it a bad thing to want some chips and sangria to go along with it? Good looking stuff, Ashley!

    • July 24, 2013 at 12:25 PM #

      Not bad at all!! 😉

  11. July 24, 2013 at 12:31 PM #

    Nice salsa and sounds like it would be great on so many things. I’m a fan of mango so just about anything that includes it is good by me.

    I like your bowl, I have the save one from Pampered Chef! It’s a great set!

    Fruit salsas are so fresh and inviting and I love that you added chopped cranberries to yours for a nice twist! It’s the perfect way to add some tart and sweet as well as color and develop some depth of flavor. It looks addicting! Fabulous job, Ashley! xo

    Lovely salsa! I always make at least one new fruit salsa each summer, just because. I haven’t tried this combo yet though, and it looks terrific. Definitely something I need to do – thanks!

      I’d had pineapple and mango but never with the cranberries added. It was good!
