mango & lime pico de gallo

I’m almost positive I’ve made this pico de gallo so many times in the past few days that I’m slowly turning yellow… let’s just say I’m completely infatuated.

I just can’t seem to stop shovelling down all the delicious summery fruit I can get my hands on in every way, shape, and from, and this combination of gorgeously golden chunks of sweet mango studded with crunchy periwinkle onions and a scattering of viridescent herbs doused in wonderfully sharp lime juice is certainly no exception.

Juicy, bright mango, tangy red onion, zingy lime, brazen chilli and bright, verdant cilantro – it’s sweet yet tangy, incredibly refreshing, and so delicious it’s practically impossible to stop ferrying it from the bowl to your mouth!

Spoon it over a piece of grilled chicken, dollop it on top of some fish, or take a spoon to it.. although if you opt for the latter, be warned: it’s very hard to stop!

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 3 medium mangoes, diced
  • 3/4 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 1/2 green chilies, seeds removed
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • pinch salt & pepper, to taste


1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste, then adjust seasoning as necessary, adding the remaining half a chilli if you want it to have a little more of a kick! Cover with cling film and leave at room temperature for at least 20 minutes in order to allow all the flavours to meld together.

2. Serve with a piece of fish or some grilled chicken, or just enjoy on a spoon!
