Avocado Mango Salsa

This fresh salsa made from mangoes and avocado will help bring a little sunshine to a dreary winter day. Full of fresh ingredients that taste delicious with tortilla chips. I made this for our family this weekend and was in a hurry to put it on the game table for the kids that I forgot to take some extra photos with the chips.

  • 2 avocados peeled, pitted and chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 ripe mango peeled and chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 bunch of cilantro chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onion minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno seeded and minced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Gently mix all ingredients together and enjoy with tortilla chips. This served 6 people as an appetizer.


  1. Looks delicious! I will certainly try it.

  2. This is an interesting take on salsa...but it sounds delicious! I'll have to try it. If no one else in the family likes it, I guess I'll enjoy eating it all by myself! :)

  3. This looks great Ellen - those lucky kids!

  4. How do you peel and pit a mango?

    1. I peeled the mango with a potato peeler. It is hard to get the pit out of a mango. I cut around the pit and cubed it for the most part on the pit till the pit finally was free from the meat of the mango. I hope that makes sense.

    2. Anneliese gave a wonderful tutorial on peeling, pitting and chopping a mango a few years ago that you might find helpful. Check it out at

  5. I am so excited, this fits in with our new healthier eating life style plan and it is going on next weeks menu when one of our girls comes home. LOVE mangos....

  6. It also helps 'sone' if the mango is 'sort of' on the ripe side when cutting out around the pit. I find also the mango has a much nicer favour when it's on the riper side. Just your own personal preference.

  7. This Salsa Would Be Good On Fish !
