Salsa is one of my all time favorite dips. My pico de gallo and tomatillo salsa are jam-packed with fresh ingredients, zesty flavors and they’re healthy to boot.

I’m a huge fan of sweet and savory flavors, which is where this Mango Avocado Salsa comes in. Like my pineapple salsa, it’s complete with sweet fruit, crunchy veggies, and just enough spiciness from some jalapeño.

The avocado is what truly sets this mango salsa apart. It adds a creamy component that makes it even more satisfying (similar to my homemade guacamole!), and the flavors pair so well together.

It’s extremely versatile and works as a crowd-pleasing dip, or as a topping for tacos, burrito bowls, grilled meats and fish.

This salsa does it all. 🙂

Recipe ingredients

Avocado mango salsa recipe ingredients.
  • Mango. Choose ripe mango that is soft yet firm to the touch for sweet, juicy fruit that holds its shape. I recommend using fresh mango as opposed to frozen mango as fresh has so much more flavor.
  • Avocado. Choose avocado that are soft yet firm. Avoid overly soft avocado that will more than likely be discolored.
  • Red bell pepper. Adds crunch and flavor. Sub with chopped tomato if desired.
  • Red onion. If you prefer a more mild onion flavor, sub the red onion with (2) green onions.
  • Jalapeño. The amount of spiciness varies in jalapeño peppers, so once you chop your pepper, taste a bit to see how spicy it is. If you’re spice intolerant, be sure to remove the seeds and white pith. If you like a lot of heat, add the seeds or use a spicier chili pepper.
  • Cilantro. Adds freshness and flavor. If you’re not a fan of cilantro, sub with Italian flat leaf parsley or your favorite fresh herbs.
  • Lime juice. Be sure to use fresh lime juice as bottled lime juice simply doesn’t compare.
