Avocado Salsa

Makes about 3 cups (or 4 servings). Excellent as a topping for grilled chicken, pork or fish.

Approximate cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados, diced (save the pits)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 habanero pepper, seeded and diced (optional-- this will make it very spicy!)
  • 3 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 of a red onion, diced
  • 1 ripe mango, diced (optional)
  • 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Keep the avocado pits in the mixture to serve. This will slow the oxidation of the avocados (what makes them turn brown) and will help the salsa last longer.

    It came out great. I did it a little different I used half of the cilantro, one jalapeño paper, and took out the red onion and half the habanero only because I was making it for my kids. We used it as a topping for our salmon burgers. They were so good. Will make this again.

    HI! i have tried the SAlmon cakes with mango salsa and i am trying this one tonight. the only thing i would mention is that the mango is much better to eat when peeled. The skin is very tough and i would recommend peeling :) Otherwise, i think this is going to be great!!!! Thanks!

    The pit only “helps” prevent browning my limiting the surface area exposed to air. You are better off using plastic wrap and pressing it directly against the salsa to limit the amount of surface area exposed to air.

    Great recipe, I added a clove of garlic and instead of the Habanero I used a Chipotle.

    I really love everything about this site. The critics are a turn off, the people who are unsafisfied and find solutions make up for it! This site is wonderful and makes my life much easier! Thank you so much for the extra time!

  5. This sounds amazing. When I store guacamole, I usually squeeze a tbsp of fresh lemon juice on the top before covering it with plastic. And it adds a nice zip to it when you’re eating it as a leftover (leave out the tomato and onion and then try spreading it over crispy chicken – it’s DEVINE!!)

    This was beautiful. I only made the amount I needed for dinner that night. It was beautiful. I should have added the extra chilli though.
