It is now summer time and the heat is coming on, but that means all of the most delicious fruit is also coming available. One of my favorite fruits is mango and the other is avocado. When the two are combined as a salsa with jalapeno and lime juice you get a perfect combination of sweet, savory and spicy.
I came up with this recipe when I catered a Mexican wedding last weekend and this was one of the appetizers. I decided to go home and create my own recipe and share it with you. You can always add a little more or less jalapeno depending on your preference for spice.
TIME: 10 minutes
1 mango diced (about 1 cup)
2 avocados diced (about 1.25 cups)
1 jalapeno seeded and minced
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons minced red onion
YIELDS: 2 cups
Mix all ingredients gently, trying not to mash the avocados too much. Serve with corn tortilla chips, in tacos or on top of a nice green salad.
