Mango-Avocado Salsa

The three recipes I have for you this week are really all part of the same recipe – you just need the first two to make the final dish.

Isn’t that clever of me?

Seriously, though, I thought it would be better to break it down this way, rather than throw a single seemingly long and complicated recipe at you all at once (although it’s really neither long nor complicated).  Besides, each component can be either enjoyed on it’s own, or as part of other dishes.

You’ll see what I mean when it’s all said and done.

The first part of the final dish is today’s recipe:  Mango-Avocado Salsa.

I love a good salsa, of which the evidence is in my basement – we canned about 20 pints of the stuff, both spicy and peach, last summer (and I better get on to eating it all if I want to make more this year).  Fresh raw salsas are my favorite, though, and this one may be the best so far.  It could not be more delicious, or more simple – and just in time for Cinco de Mayo.

It is also Whole30 and vegan.  Everybody should be happy.

Mango-Avocado Salsa. Sweet, creamy and spicy, this salsa is a great addition to your Cinco de Mayo table!

  1. Pretty much how I make it…only I add a splash of red wine vinegar. Goes great with grilled skirt steak tacos!

  2. Hi there,
    thanks for such a nice recipe!
    I prepared it right away using basil instead of cilantro and added a tomato for an overwhelming salsa feeling.
    It also goes well along with a juicy tenderloin.
