Avocado and Mango Salsa




A light and colorful party dish with chips. The combination of flavors, sweet and salty with tangy hint of lime makes this a winner. This is also great over grilled fish or chicken!

  6. This is a winner!
    My problem would not be the 1/2 cup... it is the bag of chips.
    Some things in life are just worth it.

  7. If you buy baked chips it's not too bad. Guiltless Gourmet makes great tasting low point chips in all flavors if you are lucky enough to find them by you. I think 18 chips are 2 points.

  14. I made this for Father's Day and it was fantastic! I added more jalapenos than what was asked to give it a little extra heat and I let it sit for a few hours before serving it. It was a hit!!!!

    I made this for the first time last night, I didn't have a tomato or jalapeño but I still think it turned out amazing. Even my picky husband loved it! I served it over grilled fish, YUM!!!

  20. This is a terrific recipe! I have made it three times: once as an appetizer with baked Tostito scoops, once to go with grilled chicken, and once to go with grilled tilapia. It compliments anything! And quite frankly it is yummy to just sit and eat out of the bowl for a satisfying, healthy snack! This is quickly becoming a staple for me!

  28. I made this recipe with the chicken quesadilla, and it was to die for!!! I have never had a quesadilla with so much flavor in my entire life

    ReplyDelete
  29. This was fantastic! I put it on some baked cod and it tasted delicious. I didn't have any jalapenos so I substituted a little of the Sriracha hot chili sauce. Thank you so much for the recipe!

  30. This is SO Good!! I make it almost every other day, when the mangoes are on sale! I work my recipes around this so I can have it! It's so fresh and tasty I love the blend of flavors! Thanks you.

  32. So incredible!! This salad is a keeper definitely will be making again and often.

  33. This looks really good. I can see it with seared scallops or any type of fish. I am not a cilantro fan, but I will add a touch and perhaps parsley.

    I am going to give it a try.
    Thanks again Gina.

  34. Made this today and we LOVED it with chips. gonna try it on fish tomorrow. Thanks Gina!!

  35. I like this idea but not a fan of mango. Would it taste ok if I substitute it for pineapple?

    ReplyDelete
  36. This combined with your chicken quesidillas are a go to recipe in our household now. Love it! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I made this the other day and it was a HUGE hit! Absolutely delicious. The only problem was how to stop eating it!! At least it's healthy :) thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like making this with black beans, cucumber, yellow bell pepper and corn. May add a point or 2 but soooo worth it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Gina, will this keep well over night or at least several hours in the fridge? I'm not sure the avocado would hold up but if I could at least make it early morning and serve it late afternoon, that would be a huge help!

    ReplyDelete
  40. amazing, but too much work for me! great recipe though!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This was awesome! So good with the recipe for the quesadillas! I could seriously eat bowls of it just by itself! The garlic, especially when it is fresh is so good! Thank you for the recipe!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I loved this!! Thinking about leaving the oil out next time?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I had lunch today at Chili's, and had their Tilapia with a mango salsa. It was delicious. I can't wait to try this recipe, it has the same delicious flavors.

  44. Made this tonight for my women's choir, and it was highly appreciated, though I got a particularly potent garlic clove, so we are stanky. ;) They loved it, and kept going back for more! I forgot to buy jalapenos, so I just added about 1/2 t. of habanero sauce to give it a bit of kick. Super yummy! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yum! Thanks I can't wait to make this :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Do you think this would last more than one day? I'm just cooking for two, and I'd be worried the avocado would turn brown.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Will this be good without the jalapeño pepper? The grands will surly want to eat it and I don't think they would like the heat.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Cheryl a friend of mine makes this all the time without the jalapeño and it's just as delicious!! Gina this recipes is out of this world! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. It is such a big hit for me and my whole family. We just cannot get enough.... yummy

  49. Made this tonight. I prepared shrimp tacos and I put the salsa over the shrimp. So good! This will be on my regular dinner rotation.
