Mango-Avocado Salsa (no tomatoes)

When I think salsa, I automatically think about tomatoes and tortilla chips. But “salsa” is really just a word for “sauce.” They can be chunky or smooth, with or without heat, and use a variety of ingredients. This chunky salsa features mangoes and avocados. The flavour is fresh and bright, creamy and a little bit sweet. Chopped raw shallot adds a spicy little kick at the end. Super easy to make, very nutritious, and perfect for a summer picnic. Goes really well with pork or chicken, too.

  • 2 small avocados, diced

  • juice of one lemon
  • a little lemon zest
  • dash of garlic powder

  • chopped fresh cilantro

Mix everything together in a bowl. Store leftovers covered in the fridge.

      Mangoes (and peaches) are really good additions to tomato-based salsas, too.

  3. Mango avocado salsa is fabulous! I like to add some jalapeno too for spice sometimes.

      I’m still a bit of a spice wimp when it comes to hot peppers, but I agree jalapeño would be a nice addition.

  4. Good idea…we need a ripe mango? or wait until next Tuesday? Thanks, s

      I’ve made this salsa with tomatoes, and it’s good. Without them, it’s more sweet, and I do love it with fish. I need to buy more mangoes and make another batch!
