Salsa is a famous Mexican sauce that is commonly used as a dip. Often spicy, its spiciness level may vary from quite mild to very strong. A typical salsa consists of tomatoes, onions, chilies, citrus, and coriander (cilantro). It is usually served alongside tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chips, and all kinds of other Mexican dishes and snacks.

Nowadays, there are many different variations of salsa that have been created. In this recipe, I made my own version of green mango salsa.

        Hello, Dred cuan, green mangoes do not contain much sugar. It is more than 90% starch. When partially treat with heat, the starch is converted to sugar gradually. In such cases, it will not spike the blood. That is why it is used as a remedy for the treatment of od diabetes mellitus.

        It is the ripe or semi-ripe mangoes that are saturated with sugar. Here moderation is the law. I hope this helps. Thank you for weighing in. Enjoy the weekend.

        You can pair it with any foods you want even with nachos. It's totally refreshing because of the mangoes.

        Hi Miebakagh,

        I love eating green mangoes too. I also make my fresh green mangoes shake. Mangoes are good for diabetics but under moderation right? Because it's high in sugar too.

        Hey, Dred cuan, greenmangoes are one of my favorite fruits. I usual eat them treated in hot teawith peanuts. I have once recommended green mango salsa as an ingredient in treating diabete. Becauseithas no sugar. However, you treat is great and welcomed. Thanks for sharing.
