  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 plump tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bird’s eye chili
  • 2 to 3 limes juiced
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

  • Cut the mango to remove the stone. Scoop out the fresh and cut into small cubes or just roughly chop.
  • Do the same with the avocado.
  • Cut the onion and tomatoes (scoop out the seeds first) into the same size as the mango and avocado pieces.
  • Finely slice the chili.
  • Place everything in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the lime juice. Toss.
  • Roughly chop the mint leaves and cilantro. Stir into the salsa.
  • Taste. Add more salt, pepper or lime juice, or all of them, depending on your preferred balance of flavors.
  • Serve the salsa with tortilla chips, or spoon over grilled meat or fish, or use as a sandwich topping. Whichever way you decide to use this wonderful salsa, it will add a delightful freshness to your meal.
