Mango Salsa

Chop everything, let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes for the flavors to meld. Limes and cilantro are critical. Don't try to substitute lemons.


  • 2 whole mangos chopped
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 3/4 avocado chopped, save the rest for garnish
  • 1 1/2 T jalapeno minced
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
  • 1/3 c red onion minced
  • Juice and zest of 1 - 2 limes
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro stems and leaves chopped, save a little for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Chop, mince, squeeze, zest and combine everything into a bowl. Let it marinate at least 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with avocado slices and chopped cilantro.


You can increase or decrease the amount of any of the veggies depending on how spicy you want it. Don't be afraid of the jalapeno, you need a little - it will be flat without it. Bottled lime juice is preferable to using lemons - it's just a completely different dip without the lime. Throw in a little ground pepper and/or a tsp. or two of cumin for a smokier, earthier flavor.
