This chunky, fruity salsa makes an excellent dip for tortilla or plantain chips. It’s also good on hot dogs, tacos, eggs and grilled fish.
The depth of flavor found in Ataulfo mangoes (also commonly called Champagne, yellow or honey mangoes) is preferred, but you can substitute with a larger variety, such as Tommy Atkins, as long as it’s very ripe; do not use unripe mango here.
The salsa can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Flesh of two 8-ounce Ataulfo mangoes, chopped (about 2 cups; see headnote)
9medium tomatillos (10 ounces total), husked, rinsed and finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)

Taste and stir in some or all of the reserved jalapeño seeds for a salsa with more heat, then taste again and add more salt, as needed.
Stir in the agave nectar, if using, starting with 1/2 teaspoon (it’s potent) for a slightly sweeter salsa.
