Fresh Mango & Avocado Salsa

If you can get mangos and avocados in the markets or supermarkets where you’re touring, then you can definitely make this easy salsa.


The sweet and sour combination from the mango and lime juice works really well together with the avocados to make a refreshing salsa. Serve it with nacho chips, pita chips or on the side along with pan-fried chicken or fish.


2 avocados, diced
1 mango, diced
2 spring onions, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup freshly chopped herbs (we used parsley and mint; cilantro would be nice too)
1 lime
salt, to taste


1. Have a bowl or pot ready before you start chopping. Put the diced avocado and mango in the pot as you prepare them.

2. Stir in the chopped spring onions (you could use a bit of finely minced white onion, if you can’t find spring onions), garlic and herbs.

3. Squeeze the juice of the lime over the mixture. Season to taste with the salt.

4. To make this spicy, you could also add a finely chopped hot pepper or some dried pepper flakes.

5. Serve and enjoy!
