Fiesta Fresh Mango Salad

fruit salad

¬†Colorado weather is super crazy and I’m so tired of it. It snowed on Mother’s day. It’s been snowing off and on since and yesterday (May 17th) we were finally seeming glimpses of sun and warm weather. My mom and I were out shopping and feeling the mood of the weather decided to grill for dinner with the family. We went and bought brats and hamburgers and stuff to make this salad. I haven’t had it before but my mom has been making it for¬†a while now. Even though the weather of course took a nose dive when it started raining and become cold outside the meal still turned out great and we all had a good time.

Now to focus on the salad, if you don’t care for cilantro you might not want to make this. We do put more than what it calls for so maybe a Tablespoon to you weirdo people who don’t like Cilantro it won’t be that bad. The jicama gives it a good crunchy texture while the bell peppers and cilantro give it really good flavor.

Fiesta Fresh Mango Salad


  • 3 large firm but ripe mangos (peeled, pitted, and cubed) *we used champagne mangos
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 inch diced jicama
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3 T fresh lime juice
  • 3 T brown sugar
  • 1 T fresh cilantro


  • Lightly stir all ingredients in a medium bowl. Salad may be served immediately or covered and refrigerated for several hours.

**This recipe is very versatile and you can add more or less of what you like. Just play around with it. We use way more cilantro and bell peppers then what it calls for so just put what suites your taste buds!
