Mango and Avocado Salsa
After spending three months in South East Asia and mostly eating fresh local mangos for breakfast (because anything more would have just sent me back to sleep) I find the same breakfast in the UK just doesn’t cut it!
This morning I was highly disappointed with the mango that I’d just bought from the supermarket, finding it already blackened inside and not nearly as sweet as the ones I’d grown accustomed to in Myanmar…
However it did remind me about to post this basic recipe of Mango and Avocado salsa! A great addition to any barbecue spread or with some lightly grilled fish for a light summery dinner. There is a fair bit of chopping but it all just gets tossed together right before eating so no cooking involved!
- Fresh mango, cubed
- Half a cucumber, peeled, de-seeded and sliced
- Ripe avocado, cubed
- Lime, quartered and juiced
- Red chilli pepper, de-seeded and finely chopped
- Handful of coriander, chopped
- Red onion, finely diced (I forgot this bit!)
- Mix everything up just before serving!
The mangoes and avocado are sweet and soft, the cucumber and onion adds texture, whilst the coriander, lime and chilli pepper add extra punchy flavours. A very simple salad that will always remind me of the delicious Myanmar mangoes… 😀
