Pineapple Mango Salsa
Salsa might just be one of my most favorite things ever. Seriously, I could make a meal out of salsa and chips and I love it even more as a topping for ALL of the things! It’s the perfect topping or filling for tacos, quesadillas, burritos, or on top of grilled chicken or fish (which is obviously much healthier!). And during the summer, I can never get enough salsa of all kinds.
This tropical version is my new favorite. Truth be told, when it comes to pineapple, I wouldn’t normally put it at the top of my list of favorite fruits. I don’t dislike pineapple, but on its own, I usually think it’s a bit too sweet. I’d rather eat a handful of berries over a bowl of pineapple. However, when you mix it in with other things or in a cocktail (I’m looking at you, pina coladas!), I’m totally on board!
This salsa is loaded with fresh mango, pineapple, and avocado. I totally dig the sweet pineapple and mango paired against the creamy avocado, onion, jalapeno, and lime juice. You get that sweet flavor, but it’s much more balanced. I ate some of this with a handful of chips, but then ate the rest with these Chili Lime Chicken Kebabs and some rice!
- 1 cup diced mango*
- 1 cup diced pineapple
- 1 small diced avocado
- 1 tablespoon finely diced jalapeno pepper, seeds removed
- 1/2 cup diced red onion
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2-4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1. Add the mango, pineapple, avocado, jalapeno, and the red onion to a bowl. Stir in the lime juice and cilantro until well-combined. Serve with tortilla chips or over chicken or fish.
I recommend using fresh mango if you can get it, however, you can also use frozen mango if needed. If using frozen mango, let the mango thaw, drain away the liquid, and pat dry gently with a paper towel.
