Mango Avocado Salsa

There are few things I love more than this salsa. It is absolutely bursting with flavor and stands out on any table with its vibrant colors. It makes me think of the Skittles tagline, "Taste the rainbow." This is nature's rainbow in terms of flavor for sure! I get more requests for this recipe than just about anything else. Believe me, it's worth the effort of using fresh ingredients. Do not try and use canned diced tomatoes as a short cut. The result is tragic. Next time you're having a get together and you think chips and salsa is a good idea, make sure this is the salsa you use! I also love this salsa for my salads. There is enough juice from the fruits that any sort of additional dressing is just not necessary. 

Mango Avocado Salsa

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Special Tools:
Cutting board
Chopping knife
Large bowl

2 large tomatoes, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
1 large mango, peeled and diced
1/2 large red onion, diced (or sweet onion if you prefer)
1 ripe avocado, diced (should give just a little when you press into the skin, but not too much)
1 medium jalapeño, seeded and diced
1/4 cup of packed cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp of sea salt

1. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and stir.
2. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld. 
3. IF there is any left, cover and keep refrigerated. Should keep for a few days.
