Mango and Avocado Salsa

This salsa rocks! It’s easy to make and can be served with tortilla chips or as a topping for grilled chicken, pork or seafood. YUMM! Husband was skeptical of the mango/avocade combo at first but after his first bite, he was blown away by all the flavor. He then kept commenting on how good it was. I served the chunky salsa liberally spooned over slices of grilled pork tenderloin that had been marinated in a combo of olive oil, orange juice, garlic, red wine vinegar, smoked paprika, cumin and salt/pepper. Delicious!

The only thing I did differently from the recipe was substitute 1/2 a seeded jalapeno for the habanero chile. Next time, I start with less salt then add if needed. The amount of seasoning will depend on the size of avocado and mango being used.

If serving the Mango and Avocado Salsa for company, you’ll probably want to double or triple the recipe because it will disappear quickly! After you make it, let me know how you served it. Enjoy!!!

Note: Always use caution when seeding spicy chiles like habaneros and jalapenos. The seeds and veins inside the chiles can cause skin irritation. There’s lots of info on the web about seeing chiles if you’re not sure.

    Yum! I think we may have to have that with dinner. How would it taste with grilled chicken?

  2. Oh wow, this sounds soooo yummy. I am in love with avacados AND mangos.
    My husband used to grow habaneros and would try to put them in our food secretly..which might explain my aversion to them. So I would go with the jalapeno. 😉

    now that is a perfect salsa…..what a great combination of flavours! I would love to try that with some blackened chicken, the mango and avocado would help offset the spices!
