Avocado and Mango Salsa

A delicious salty sweet salsa is great with chips, over meat, or even in a salad!  It’s super simple and can be made up in about 15 minutes – and even though you’ll be tempted to eat it right away, please do let it meld for a bit!

What you need:

  • 1 honey mango (see photo below)
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ jalapeño, finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt **

Honey Mango

 

** I like to use a flaked sea salt.  It has a great flavor and blends really well.  Looks like this:

How to Do it:

First, carefully peel the mango trying to keep on as much meat as possible.  There is a big, flat pit in the middle.  Slice carefully on each side of the pit, then around the thinner edge.  Chop the mango into small squares, as even as possible.

Next, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.  Carefully scoop the meat from the skin and lay, cut side down on a cutting board.  Slice each half, then cut into small, even squares.

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and gently mix.  Allow to sit for at least 20 minutes to meld the flavors together.
