    Default Mango Salsa

    Description: Quick, easy, and really yummy! I usually serve with corn chips...but pita chips would work, or you could top any sort of taco, tostada type dish with this!

    I always bring the ingredients for this dish to informal pot luck dinners and make it right there and serve fresh.
    Time: 10 minutes
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 2-3 ripe mangos
    2. 2-3 ripe avocados
    3. cilantro
    4. 1-2 limes
    Preparation:
    1. You'll need a bowl to toss all ingredients in, and then some sort of serving dish that you can add the salsa and chips, etc. to. Cutting board, knife...
    Instructions:
    1. 1. Peel/dice mangos
    2. 2. Cut avocado into pieces (less ripe maybe better)
    3. 3. Chop 1/4 cup +/- cilantro
    4. 4. Juice of at least one fresh lime

    5. Carefully mix all ingredients in a bowl (you don't want to turn the avocado into guacamole!) and then transfer to a serving dish. Surround with your favorite corn chips or other salsa dipping item like pita chips. Enjoy!

    This too sounds incredible! I have never had mango and avocado in the same dish. I love salsa and all the ingredients you list, Jenny, so this one is going on the shopping list. It is funny because I recently saw mangos in the grocery store and thought 'I wonder what I can make with one of those?' LOL!

    Cheers,

    you don't know what you're missing. try it. I love, but I don't put the cilantro (cause I don't like the taste) I put fresh parsely. it works well too.
    very good recipe, love avocado + mango, hummm

    mmmmmmm, sounds good. I think I will chop some Serrano pepper into it for a kick when I try it.
