Mango Avocado Salsa

Salsa is a mexican dip and there are so many varieties available. Mango salsa, a sweet and spicy dip,  is a delicious one which we tasted sometime back in a mexican restaurant. It is a seasonal dish, obviously as Mango is not available throughout the year. I saw the recipe of Mango Avocado salsa in the newspaper which inspired me to make it the very same day itself, though I modified the recipe a little. The ripe mangoes in this dip gives a unique taste and we can't just stop eating it. Guacamole is another mexican dip which is our favourite made using Avocado as main ingredient. You can have this salsa as a dip for tortilla chips or have it plain as a salad....in any way it will taste excellent. It's so simple to make and please do try this out :)




You need...

1 ripe Mango
1 ripe Avocado
1 Tomato chopped
1/2 of an Onion chopped
1 Jalapeno  or 2 Green chillies seeds removed and chopped finely
3-4 tbsp chopped Coriander leaves / Cilantro
Lime
Salt
Pepper



To prepare..

Peel the mango and chop into small pieces. Cut the avocado into two, remove the pit and chop the flesh. (or dice them)

Combine onion, tomato, green chillies / jalapeno, cilantro, salt and pepper. Squeeze some lime juice and mix thoroughly.

Now add the mango and avocado pieces, combine well. Add more salt, pepper or lime juice if required. Salsa is ready to enjoy. You can also chill this for about 30 minutes for a better taste and then serve.



Notes:
* You can also add crushed red chilli flakes instead of green chillies.
* You can skip avocado & onion and make a different version of Mango salsa.
