Mango and Avocado Salsa (serves 4)
Perfect for the summer. Goes well with blackened fish and I am having it alongside Lime Garlic Shrimp (see my recipe). To me salsa was the tomato kind you get served along with guacamole. But here in Florida I started to see fruity salsas. Mango is one of my favorite fruits and I mixed it with a little red onion, avocado, jalapeno and lime juice. Wear gloves when working with jalapenos as they can otherwise make your hands itch and don’t touch your eyes.
1 small mango or 1/2 a large one – chopped into small chunks
1 avocado – chopped into small chunks
1 1/2 tbsp. red onion – finely chopped
1 jalapeno – remove seeds and pith (that is where the heat is), cut into fine strips and then chop into very small pieces
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together well.
