This weekend Bill and I went to a BBQ at our friend’s house, so naturally I wanted to bring something with us (you taught me well mom). The only issue was that we were all going to the beach first and then to the BBQ, stopping at a grocery store in between though thankfully. This eliminated many, many options of things to bring with me. I obviously couldn’t bring something to the beach since it would be sitting in the hot sun all day (ew). I also couldn’t bring anything that was too time consuming because I couldn’t make it before hand.
After countless searches I finally came upon this Mango & Avocado Salsa that I used for the base idea of the salsa. I left out a few of the ingredients but overall it was the perfect easy, yet cool and refreshing dish to serve as an appetizer. With some help from Bill (thanks bubs!), I was able to chop up all of the ingredients pretty fast and join everyone outside before all of the other appetizers were gone!
-1 mango, peeled and diced (One of my friends showed me this great tip on how to cut mangos, click here to see a youtube video with the same tip. I recommend skipping to 0:45 seconds and then watching the two different ways)
-1 avocado, peeled and diced
-1 plum tomato, diced
-1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
-2 tbsp fresh lime juice
-1/4 cup chopped red onion
-1 tbsp olive oil
- Combine all of the ingredients and serve! Feel free to let it sit in the fridge and marinate for a half hour first.
