Mango Avocado Salsa

May 9, 2012

One of the many wonderful things about salsa is there are no shortage of excuses to make it.  Any time of year, any weather, any occasion, there is a salsa to fit the bill.  This most recent concoction folded beautifully into a pre-Cinco de Mayo/ baby shower (yes, Fresh Lime Margaritas were included, of course! ).

Mango Avocado Salsa combines sweet tart mango with creamy avocado spiked with red onion and jalapeño and doused with lime.  This palate pleasing mix is equally at home on a piece of grilled salmon or chicken as it is on a tortilla chip or quesadilla.  It is the kind of dip that makes you want to whip up another batch as soon as the first is gobbled up.  If you are unsure how to cut a mango check out this post.  I would love to hear what creative ways you come up with to serve this salsa!

    we call this salad and just eat it straight up, I actually sub mint for peppers though, makes it more saladable, anyway the two were meant to be together.
