Help with a recipe: mango salsa with ginger

I'm away staying with my fiancee's family and I was planning to make a recipe for mango salsa that I had. Trouble is the recipe is back home and so I don't have it with me. I was wondering if anybody can help me out either with the ingredients or else a link, or even a similar recipe from your own collection.

The recipe came from the most recent issue of Clean Eating magazine and was for (I think) Thai Chicken with Mango Salsa. I'm not interested in the chicken side of things, just the salsa (which really seemed more tropical to me than thai).

I just remember that it had mango, lime juice, and ginger in it, and cilantro.

Can anyone help out? Again, the ingredients and amounts would be ideal but if you have another recipe you love that sounds similar, I'd love to hear it too. I liked this one because it tasted so fresh and summery. I'll probably be serving it with pork this time rather than chicken.

  1. If you scroll down a bit, you'll find a marvelous papaya salsa from Chris Sclehsinger & John Willoughby's book "Salsas, Sambals, Chutneys, & Chowchows." I've made it with mango (they say you can make it with just about any fruit including mangoes, peaches, and pineapple) because I prefer mango to papaya. The recipe as written doesn't include ginger, but I've added a tablespoon or two of minced fresh ginger and like it better that way.

    1. I just made a mango salsa for the peoplle that I cook for, and they really liked it..even the ones that don't like ginger. I added less ginger and jalapeno than the recipe calls for, though.
      Mango Salsa
      2c diced mango
      1/2 cup diced red/green pepper (red is sweeter)
      1/3 cup diced red onion
      2 T vinegar (i used white wine)
      2t. minced ginger
      1t minced jalapeno
      2 t minced garlic
      1T lime juice
      2T chopped cilantro (I added more)
      Mix all ingredients together. and refrigerate at least 2-3 hours.


      1. I love this mango salsa. It doesn't have ginger, but I suppose you could add it. I just bought 18 mangos yesterday and they are ripening as we speak so that I can make it for my guests on July 4th.

        1. 1 mango
          2 navel oranges
          2 tbsp lime juice
          1/4 cup red bell peppers,
          1/4 cup thai basil or regular,
          1/8 tsp sea salt,
          1/8 tsp black pepper,
          1 tsp ginger
