Why I Love This Mango Avocado Salsa

Chips and salsa is a perfect summer snack because it’s light, refreshing, and easy to make for a crowd.

Not only this mango salsa recipe is so easy to make, but it also is so refreshing and delicious.

You get the sweetness from the mango, a refreshing tartness from the fresh lime juice, and a little kick from the jalapeño peppers.

This is always a crowd favorite when I bring it to a gathering.

How to Make Mango Avocado Salsa

All you need is a sharp knife and 6 simple ingredients. You will need:

  1. Mango
  2. Tomato
  3. Avocado
  4. Red Onion
  5. Cilantro
  6. Lime (squeezed)
  7. Jalapeno or habanero peppers (optional, if you want to give it a kick)*
  8. Salt & pepper to taste

If jalapeños are too spicy for your liking, you could add a little more fresh red onion instead.

The onion adds a nice little crunch and a sharp bite that will cut the sweetness of the mango and add a kick without too much heat!

*Habanero peppers are much spicier than a jalapeño pepper.

Remove seeds from either pepper if you want to reduce the heat.

Remember to wear gloves, wash your hands thoroughly, and avoid touching your eyes and face after cutting the pepper.

Those sneaky oils can get in your eyes and boy does it sting!

How to Serve Mango Avocado Salsa

Mango salsa makes a great snack to serve with chips, but it also works really well as a condiment to add on top of chicken, salmon or any other fish.

I especially love to add a scoop of this fresh salsa on top of fish tacos.

It doesn’t overpower the delicate fish and compliments the dish really well.

How Long Does Mango Avocado Salsa Last?

Anything with avocados is always best served fresh, however, this salsa can stay good in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.

Keep in mind that the avocado will start to brown.

Adding citrus (lime juice) helps to prolong the browning effect, but you will still notice discoloration of the avocado within a day.

Tips for keeping leftover avocado from turning brown

I absolutely LOVE adding avocado to just about anything- salads, toast, or just eating as a snack.

The only thing I don’t like is that if you don’t eat the whole thing, it can turn brown and very unappealing.

I usually try to buy smaller avocados so that I can eat the whole thing in one sitting, but when I have the larger ones I usually save half for later or the next day.

  1. As I mentioned above, citrus helps to slow down the browning of an avocado, so if you have some leftovers, try brushing the exposed half with citrus juice, place the flesh side down and cover tightly.
  2. You can also fill a dish with water, put the avocado in the flesh side down, and store it that way as well. Either way should slow down the browning by a day or two.
