Avocado Mango Salsa

Course Side Dish
Cuisine Mexican
Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 4



  • 1 medium ripe avocado-it should be soft when you squeeze it gently
  • 1/2 of a ripe mango-you could use ataulfo or red mangos
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • red chili flakes to taste
  • fresh herbs such as green onion and/or cilantro


The Nitty-Gritty

  1. Open your avocado and pit it using the large knife. Softly tap the avocado seed with the blade of the knife (please be careful!) and twist to remove the pit.
  2. Scrape the avocado into the bowl and mash with a fork. I like to whip mine up pretty smooth.
  3. add in your salt, onion powder and chili flakes. Taste and adjust.
  4. Cut your mango along the pit so you have two equal halves. Take one half and create a grid pattern with your knife.
  5. Now cut the mango sections off into your bowl of mashed avocado.
  6. Add in your fresh herbs. I used green onion, but if you are a fan of cilantro this would be the perfect opportunity to include it into a dish.
