Mango and avocado salsa


Mango and avocado salsa

Our mint and basil are thriving but our lime tree has gone on vacation once more and it’ll probably be several months before we see fruits again. The juice of the last three limes and a handful of freshly picked mint leaves went into this fresh salsa that is creamy, tangy, zesty, sweet and spicy all at the same time.

This salsa is also great as a dip, as a garnish for grilled or fried meat or fish, or as a sandwich topping. Definitely something to make again and again. It’s easy, the dish is colorful and, oh, so festive and it won’t look out of place at a party or during holiday celebrations.

This vegan delight is dedicated to my good friend, lawyer and health buff Arnel Bañas, who is celebrating his birthday today.
